The Meat Market

Jeremy Stanton
owner of The Meat Market
This past weekend I was up in Great Barrington, Ma with Mike Pardus on a much needed break from routine. One of the places we visited was a meat market that specializes in meat from locally raised animals. The meat looked great, but what really impressed me was how nicely the place was laid out and the vibe from the owner and staff. These are genuinely nice people who take a lot of pride in their work.

The business is a "no stone unturned" operation with lots of "value added" products derived from the animals they butcher. They also do VERY cool catering menus with stuff like spit-roasted steamship rounds (whole hind legs of beef) and whole fish baked in salt.

There's lots of great looking and tasting charcuterie and salumi and frankly I'm envious. I'm also thrilled to have seen tangible proof that there really are people out there reinventing the American butcher shop.
