Quality, Free-Range Meats
At Market Meats, we strive to ensure our service and the highest quality products for your cooking needs. That’s why when it comes to selling pork, we want to let you know the differences in free-range pork and barn-raised pork. Not only does it make a difference for ethical purposes, but it also affects the quality of the meat products. As we only want to sell the best meats, knowing the difference between the two can help you not only enjoy a better meal, but also have healthier meals.
Free-range pork refers to pigs that have been raised on a farm that allows them to roam freely outdoors rather than being confined in a closure. This allows the animals to have access to natural sunlight and the ability to move around freely and forage, dig, eat weeds, and pasture for food outside of their feeding stations. This is opposed to barn-raised pigs who are kept indoors and given a diet meant for quick growth.
Due to our commitment to quality meats, our wide selection of organic pork comes from free-range pork that we’ll highlight for all to see. You’ll be astounded by the freshness of our products, and our Kitsilano butcher shop is freely available to answer questions about the organic quality of our products. Rest assured that whatever meat you purchase here will be the best choice that you’ll have, no matter if you’re preparing a roast or a quiet dinner with a significant other.
Market Meats is located in the heart of Kitsilano. For further inquiries, do not hesitate to contact us at 604-737-0905.
