Highest Quality Meats and Farm-to-Table Products
Come experience Ventura's premier butcher shop located at 3049 E. Main Street in Ventura's midtown area, just one block west of the Pacific View Mall. 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.
Our full service Deli features delectable sandwiches and ready-to-serve slow smoked meats like Tri-Tip, Ribs and Chicken! Try a delicious "BBQ Bowl" served with rice, beans, meats and BBQ sauce, or our popular Family Meals. The market also features local produce, local fruit, and many locally made products such as sauces, honey, jams, coffee and more. Come see why we are Ventura's authentic butcher shop – and so much more!

For the time being, we can not accept coupons or outside discount programs (such as Axxess). This is because our suppliers have been raising their rates due to supply/demand issues. We are trying to minimize rate increases to our customers, as a first step we are stopping all discounts.
Our "Bulk Boxes" and "Subscription Boxes" are available and do provide significant savings. Items can be substituted on the Bulk Box so you get only what you want. Subscription Boxes can be bi-weekly or monthly, and your Box items can be changed/updated between orders. Curbside pick up or free local delivery is also available! See the "Butcher Club" page for details about Bulk Boxes and Subscription Boxes.
We have increased our inventory of other essential items, including Milk, Butter, Cheese, Eggs, Local Produce and Fresh Breads. These can be ordered in advance too and brought to your car for contact-less shopping.
We are sanitizing customer areas throughout the day. As always, we are following food safety & handling guidelines and best practices.
We are doing our best to remain open and to service our customers' needs during this difficult time. To do this, it's important to please call in your order in advance whenever possible.
