When you think of a butcher, you’ll most likely picture the butcher counter at a big-box supermarket rather than a traditional brick and mortar store. Thanks to a culture of convenience, this has become the norm for most grocery shoppers.
But the rise of consumer education has brought with it new levels of environmental and ethical consciousness among consumers who are now interested in buying high-quality meat that was produced in a more sustainable manner. This means that more and more, they are turning to their local butchers to supply them with more high-quality products.
Here are a few reasons to buy from your local butcher, Marbled Meats:
Local butchers are specialized in their trade, and many have dozens of years of experience. Every professional butcher is well-trained, but there is a wealth of knowledge that can be only learned through experience. This knowledge is exclusive to independent butchers who manage every aspect of their business and know the trade inside and out. As our customer, we are proud to pass on that knowledge of experience to you.
While you might consider the variety located at your butcher counter at the supermarket to be everything you need, you’ll never get to experience any diversity in those products. They’ll be the same everytime you go back each week. Local butchers, on the other hand, have unparalleled flexibility when it comes to custom orders and preparations. If you need a special cut of meat for a family dish or tradition, chances are you’ll find it at the local butcher. And if not, they can most likely source it for you after a friendly conversation. At Marbled Meats, we also curate our inventory based on seasonal quality as well as taste. Allow us to handle all of your needs by making regular orders or letting us handle your special requests.
While local butchers can’t provide as much convenience to consumers as supermarkets, wholesale clubs or frozen food chains, what we CAN provide is exceptional quality. At Marbled Meats, we only use reputable sources, delivered locally, that provide us with the freshest possible products and ingredients straight to our shelves without exception. If you want to eat high-quality food as well as support local businesses, stop by Marbled Meats!
Aside from quality, your local butcher can also provide you with a level of transparency simply not offered by big-box grocery stores. While it may be convenient to grab a slab of ground beef on your way out with your eggs and milk, you won’t know when the meat was prepared or what went into it, or even where it came from half the time. When you go to a local butcher like Marbled Meats, you can see and ask about the entire process. You can choose your cut, have it prepared to order, right in front of your eyes. You can walk out with the confidence knowing your meat was not handled unnecessarily, and that there were no additives involved.
