Grass-fed Beef in Los Angeles/Silverlake/Echo Park area?

I am trying to find WHERE to buy grass-fed beef at any supermarket, Trader Joe's, Gelson's, Whole Foods around this Los Angeles Area. Or even Hollywood, Los Feliz, Glendale?

I could even find it at my local Wild Oats when I lived in Miami, and Florida is not widely known for its organic, grass fed, free range habits....

Anyone have any advice for me?

Thanks and be healthy :)

  1. Sometimes they have it at Trader Joe's, but I haven't seen as much lately. Whole Foods is your best bet (Glendale). Can't really think of anywhere in Los Feliz/Silver Lake/Echo Park other than TJs.
    It does seem to be fairly elusive in L.A., especially in restaurants.

    1. Not sure if it's grass fed, but it the Handy Mart in burbank (magnolia and buena vista) has really good beef at quite good prices.

      I hear there's a good place in arcadia too, was listed in another Chowhound thread.

      1. Right now Trader Joe's has marinated, grass fed tri-tip from Australia, also some ground beef from Australia that I think is grass fed.

        1. I believe Huntington Meats at the Farmer's Market on 3rd has all grass fed beef.

            Huntington Meats is mainly stocked with corn-fed beef from Coalinga's Harris Ranch.

              The cattle are mostly graised, then bulkled up at the end with alphafa and corn.

          2. If you want locally raised livestock, try Kathy Lindner who sells grass fed bison at the Hollywood Farmers market on Ivar on Sunday mornings.

            There's also a guy at the market who sells grass-fed beef, but I think he also finishes his cattle with corn before harvesting.
