(now that i'm through giggling about the phrase "local meat...")
i have been adrift about this topic since i moved out of loring park and johnson meats closed down. i usually get decent-enough stuff from kowalski's or lund's or even cub on occasion, but i miss having a proper butcher shop!
i know there have to be good spots for high-quality meat--even, maybe, some locally produced stuff--but i don't know where!
help a carnivoress out, folks!
oh, and if it helps, i'm in northeast minneapolis now--which seems like JUST the neighborhood for such a thing--but i am willing to make a trip for such a luxury.
You could try Von Hansen's- multiple locations around town. Otherwise, Widmer's Supermarket in St. Paul has a great meat counter. Widmer's is on the corner of St. Clair and Prior (just up the block from the Groveland Tap).
Hackenmueller Meats in Robbinsdale, and its not far from NE, they have a fleet of great butchers, and all there meats are great.
Try Everett's. The best ribeyes in the Twin Cities!
