phx - local beef at the downtown farmers market
it's the first time i've been on-line since friday *the horrors* so i haven't had a chance to write,
but there's a new local rancher at the downtown phoenix market. they were from kearney, and i wish i could remember their names :(
what i will tell you is that their prices ROCKED..they only had 6 kinds of beef, in 2 categories, 5 bucks a pound, and 8 bucks a pound.
in the 8 bucks a pound category - new york strip, rib eye and one other
in the 5 bucks a pound category - flank steak, ground beef, and one other
sorry i can't remember the one other in both categories :(
but they are a local rancher, they have 27,000 acres, the meat is hormone and steroid free, they feed on grass and some grain.
they said they only brought a couple things to see what sold and boy was it selling. i was there at 8:30 *they open at 8* and they'd already sold thru about 20% of what they brought.
they said they'd be willing to do 'custom orders' - ie call/order from them, and they'd bring it down to you. they also said they'd deliver!!
i left their flyer at home - i'll update with the info - but i wanted to let everyone know that there's beef now, at a good price, at the market!!
