Locally raised beef or poultry?

My upcoming theme for our gourmet group is "Farm to Table"- I am in charge of the main course and feeling a little unsure. Does anyone know where I can get locally-raised beef or poultry? Ideally at a Farmer's Market (in LA area- not Pasadena if possible- too far!) PLEASE REPLY with any suggestions, I am stumped.

  1. You also should visit either the Hollywood Farmer's Market or the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmer's Market.

    )Arizona Ave Santa Monica CA, Arizona Ave Santa Monica, CA

    Hollywood Farmers Market
    1600 Ivar Avenue, Los Angeles, CA

    1. The Sunday Mar Vista FM on Grand View has a purveyor of beef, lamb and goat. I know his lamb is sourced from his father who lives in Fresno - don't know if that's local enough, but his products are good albeit a little pricey. He has a cut of lamb - basically a deboned rack of lamb - which is almost like a lamb-version of pork belly in its unctuousness and tenderness. It's around $25/pound, but a little goes a long way.

      1. Rainbow Ranch Farms has a poultry CSA and sellls beef shares (and sometimes pig shares). The poultry and beef are pastured and the beef is farm finished.
