With a focus on personal service and sustainable locally-sourced foods, Main Street Meats & Real Foods Market is a full-service butcher shop specializing in the highest quality grass-fed beef that's dry-aged for outstanding flavor and cut to order. 

We grind, cut and produce many products in small batches right here on the premises, which means our ground chuck is actually 100% chuck steak and our sausages and specialty burgers are always fresh and void of any dyes or artificial preservatives. From pasture raised (free range) chicken, to organic pork and fresh American lamb, our meat case is filled with the highest quality offerings for your family meals.

For ultimate convenience and best value, sign up for a monthly or bi-weekly Butcher Club Subscription Box! Your box order is custom cut and vacuum sealed for freshness, and it's always customized to ensure you get the meats you want and nothing you don't. Right now we have a Sign-Up incentive: Receive a FREE Tri-Tip with each of your first 3 monthly Subscription Boxes! We also offer free local delivery or curbside pick of you box order! (The very best meats, cut and packed the way you want, and brought to your door each month -- what could be easier, or tastier!!)

Try a delicious "BBQ Bowl" served with rice, beans, meats and BBQ sauce, or our popular Family Meals. The market also features seasonal produce, fresh baked local breads, local fruit, and many locally made products such as sauces, honey, jams and more.

With the holidays approaching, we want to share gratitude with you and let you know about some exciting developments here!

Throughout this Covid-19 crisis, we have been proud to continue to source the finest quality meats for our customers, and we sincerely thank you for shopping with us! We've also proudly increased products from local small businesses, such as sauces, local produce and fresh breads from Ventura's Agostino's Bakery.

When meat prices spiked in late Spring (upwards of 300% in many cases), we held steady on pricing, sometimes losing money on staple products. It was a conscious decision to support our community, and we are happy to have made that decision. Now in October, meat prices remain at an all-time high. We have not raised our prices, however we have eliminated public coupons, mailers and most discounts.

In effort to provide you with greater convenience and continued safety, we've launched several new services over the past few months. These include:

• Online Ordering: Just about everything we carry (including Thanksgiving turkeys, prime ribs, steaks and deli foods) can now be ordered right here on our website!

• After placing an online order, our "Concierge" will call you to confirm details, review special instructions or add optional grocery items.

• Free Local Delivery and Curbside Pick-Up so you don't have wait in lines or even get out of your car!

• Our Butcher Box Subscription service for ultimate convenience and best value! Your monthly or bi-weekly box is customized (every time), custom cut and vacuum sealed for freshness and easy storage - subscribers get special perks too! Simply sign up on the Butcher Club page!

We have also increased our inventory of other essential items, including Milk, Butter, Cheese, Eggs, Local Produce and Fresh Baked Breads. These can be ordered in advance too and brought to your car for contact-less shopping.

We hope your holidays will be filled with Good Friends, Good Times & Good Food!! 

Thank you for supporting our small business!
