Current Status

The Covid-19 public health crisis is currently affecting all aspects of life here in Ventura County. We are OPEN Tuesday-Saturday 10:00am-6:00pm and Sunday 10:00am-5:00pm. Please see our latest operational information below!

LATEST UPDATE: February 23

The health and safety of our customers and staff has always been the highest priority here at Main Street Meats. Thank you for following all posted Covid-19 notices, such as mask wearing and social distancing. We are sanitizing customer areas throughout the day and following, as always, all food safety & handling guidelines and best practices.

OCCUPANCY LIMITS: Based on number of customers in the shop, you may be asked to wait outside. While inside, please use social distancing markings on the floor. Please minimize time in the shop by ordering ahead whenever possible, either by calling or online. All advance orders can still be custom cut (so you get the size and thickness that you'd like) and we will also vacuum pack and seal your items at no charge if you'd like (so your items stay fresh longer in the frig or are ready to freeze). 

Currently our services include:
-- The Butcher Shop, including ready-for-oven entrees
-- The Market, including Italian gourmet items, fresh locally-made breads and essential groceries
-- The Deli, including smoked meats, sandwiches and BBQ bowls. Please always call ahead for Deli service.

Two phones lines are now available: Our main line 805-643-0318 and also 805-651-1044.


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 last year (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 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 twice-monthly 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.

Thank you for supporting our small business!

Delicious ,melt in your mouth tender and juicy. But the texture was that of regular beef brisket. Meat was brown in color and not the reddish tint and somewhat stringy consistency usually found in traditional corned beef. The brining spices was the best blend I have ever tasted. I will purchase it again next March.
