Welcome to Our Butcher Shop

WELCOME TO OUR BUTCHER SHOP

Our meat department has everything you need to master mealtime, whether it’s getting a quick healthy dinner on the table or throwing down for an outdoor grilling party. We bring in the highest quality and best tasting meat we can find and you’ll meet only experienced, friendly, helpful folks behind our counters.

REAL BUTCHERS

When it comes to handling meat, our butchers are the real deal. Our managers average more than 20 years of experience, so they have expert knowledge of every item behind that counter. Even the new butchers get a nose‑to‑tail education in butchery, a practice that’s rare to find in other grocery stores.

FULL SERVICE SHOP

From slicing to grinding, it’s all happening less than 50 feet from where you grab the meat and put in your basket. Not only is each one of our stores operating a full‑service butcher shop, but they are also crafting restaurant-quality ready‑to‑cook meal options, including burger patties, kabobs, meatloaves, and more, all with fresh in‑season ingredients.

TASTE & QUALITY

The Metropolitan Market Standard focuses on quality, animal welfare, and of course, flavor. Our meat has to be delicious, so we only purchase meat we love, from suppliers we know and trust. From grass-fed beef, to free-range chickens, we are constantly looking for the best for your table.

STANDARDS & PRACTICES

The meat we sell is the exact meat we prefer to cook ourselves – meat raised free of added hormones, growth stimulants, gestational pens, inhumane environments, antibiotics, and preservatives. We insist that all animals are naturally raised, live stress‑free, and are fed a vegetarian diet.

OUR PARTNERS

As a consumer, it’s hard to know everything about the meat you bring home, but as meat experts, we can. Which is why we’re constantly traveling the Northwest, from cattle ranches in Washington to third generation farms in California, sampling meats and connecting with ranchers and farmers.
