Meat at Pepper Place

I don't know why it took so long for the Pepper Place Market organizers to allow vendors to start selling meats at the popular Saturday morning farmer's market, but I'm glad they finally did.

I noticed several booths selling locally grown meat Saturday, but I stopped at the Boutwell Farms booth, where they were giving out fresh-grilled samples of beef and pork. After tasting the strip, filet and pork kabobs, I knew I must take some home.

I must not be the only one who's happy to see locally farmed meats, because it was only about 9:15 and they were already nearly out. I was able to snag a 2-pound package of pork tips and used about a pound and a half to make kabobs on the grill that night. (The other pieces, too small for kabobs, went into a bag in the freezer for later addition to some stew or curry.) Oh, were they wonderful! So meaty tasting, and tender.

I found out that if you call Boutwell Farms in advance, you can order meat to be picked up at the Pepper Place market (or at the Valleydale Farmer's Market), and I'll definitely be doing that!

I didn't know they're at the Valleydale market! What are their prices like?

"Only 9:15?" If I can't get to Pepper Place by 7:00 or 7:30, I don't even bother. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do that yet this year.

I've ordered from Boutwell Farms before and while I found the customer service to be slightly lacking, I was very pleased with the product. It's pretty great that they're selling at the market now.
