We stumbled upon the Avedano’s Meat Wagon, while we were in San Fransisco. I first noticed Melanie Eisemann‘s adorable dog then realized that the dog was sitting on the stairwell of this amazing red meat wagon. Who knew there was such thing as a Meat Wagon? Avedano’s is a local SF Butcher Shop and Market and the Meat Wagon is just another fabulous component of the shop. We purchased a couple of marrow bones for Dottie (she loved them) and a steak rub for our for our friend “D”.
“Located in Bernal Heights, Avedano’s is an old-fashioned butcher shop and neighborhood market specializing in sustainably grown and raised products. We are committed to supporting local and responsible businesses.
THE SKINNY ON OUR MEAT
We cut all of our meat the old-fashioned way, with a handsaw, a meat cleaver, and a boning knife. All of our choice cuts come from responsibly raised, hormone,steroid, and antibiotic free animals. Every week we procure and butcher whole grass-fed lambs, a heritage breed pig, and we get a side of grass fed beef from one of our few handpicked local ranches that we proudly distribute through our meat boxes.
If you don’t see the cut of meat that you want, we would be happy to source it for you from any one of our local ranches. We receive shipments of fresh wild and certified-sustainably farmed fish six days a week from Royal Hawaiian Seafood.
It’s our responsibility to you to make sure we know from who and where all of our meat comes from so that we can maintain a sustainable butcher shop with only the highest quality of meat.
The Avedano’s Meat Wagon can be found parked in Proxy (Hayes Valley) at 432 Octavia Boulevard on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11 am to 7 pm, and on Sundays from 12 noon until 5pm.
