Where: Niman Ranch Ham Steak & Bacon

My kids like ham. Trader Joes hasn't had either in stock for weeks so I assume they have discontinued both.

Where can I find either product locally, particularly the ham steak?

      1. I asked the last time I went to Trader Joe's and they told me that they had indeed discontinued all Niman Ranch products. Something to do with the prices going up. I am very disappointed as I don't want another store to have to go to :(

        1. I am still trying to find a source for Niman Ranch ham steaks in LA. I haven't found them anywhere and my calls/email to Niman Ranch have not been returned. Please let me know if you've seen them anywhere.

          My brain almost exploded last weekend when I spotted the mythic ham steak at the Berkeley Bowl but I was already at my limit in raw and cured plane meat.

            I have seen them at select Bristol Farms and Sprouts markets. I would call first because not all of them carry it. I know for a fact that Bristol Farms in Newport Beach carries both sporadically, most cases the bacon but it would not hurt to call. I have also bought the bacon, ham steaks, and apple sausages (I love those things) at Sprouts.

              Hum. Time to start calling again. They didn't have any last round...

                I definitely saw the ham steaks today at Sprouts in Chino Hills.

                  Thanks you very much. I am delighted with a confirmed sighting.

                    Yup! Saw all sorts of Niman Ranch items at the Culver City Sprouts today INCLUDING the ham. They had a package of pre-cooked pulled pork which looked intriguing. We are getting our fridge fixed this weekend, so I didn't buy it this time... next week though for sure! SLIDER dinner! ;)

                      I recommend the little apple cinnamon sausage links. They are so good. I was weary at first but they are excellent with a subtle touch of apple and cinnamon.

                  I'm pretty sure Huntington Meats at the Fairfax Farmers Markets carries their products. Don't
                  know about the ham steak, but it would be worth a call. If they don't have them, I'm pretty sure they would get them for you.

              2. Co-Opportunity in Santa Monica may still have Niman Ranch products.
