Wishing you all a Safe and Fun 4th of July









New Email Campaign Rocks
We launched an email campaign last month and sent out 1000 invitations to receive this blog-newsletter by email. We had a huge response. Thanks to all of you who subscribed! For those who are interested in receiving this blog by email, please go to our request email web page.

Google Likes Us
Thank you Google! We just noticed that we have received some recognition from Google in the form of how they display our web site pages on a search result page for “Eugene Oregon Meat Market”. It shows the eight main pages of our web site. Maybe our webmaster knows a few tricks. Take a peek >

Ribs on the BarBie
July is a great month for putting RIBS on the Barbie. Our ribs are some of the best in Oregon and come from sustainable and socially responsible vendors. The Ribs are all-natural and thick with meat, full of flavor, and the perfect match for your favorite barbecue sauce.


Parking Lot BarBq Sizzles
Our weekly Saturday parking lot BarBQ will be continuing in July every Saturday except on the 23rd. Scott Wooley will be cooking up hot dogs, hamburgers, half chickens and ribs from 11am – 3pm, all at reasonable prices! Craft beers and Oregon wines are also available at our deli. We are participating in the Winetasia fund raiser on Saturday, July 23, 2011 at 6 p.m. Join us at Silvan Ridge/Hinman Vineyards for evening of wine, food and fun.

The Whole Hog – Planning a Luau?
Tis the season for luaus and every year we get orders for hogs. We can get 40-100lb hogs and need to have a ten day lead time for ordering. Read about cooking a Kalua Pig in a pit. (That’s Kalua, not Kahlua). Pricing can be found here on our website.



Wine Tasting Thursday Nights
Wow! We had a great turnout at our Wine Tasting in June. Seventeen folks showed up and enjoyed the wine and cheese sampling. Thanks to Kaila and Keith who will be doing it again the third Thursday of July (21st) and each month at 7:00 p.m. Kaila Nicols shares four wines with critique and Keith Ellis pairs cheeses with each.( $10.00 per class)



Friday Night Free Wine Tastings
Due to popular demand we are continuing to offer free wine tasting every Friday night from 4pm to 6pm. We offer a large selection of both local, regional, and imported wines in our deli, as well as a great selection of Oregon craft cheeses and imports. Our dried meats include Boar’s Head products, Knee Deep Cattle Company beef jerky, and other select products.

It’s June 1st , the Moody Blues are in town tonight at the Cuthbert Amphitheater,

and we are starting to see some sunny days. It’s officially Summer this month and this is the season for outdoor fun, BarBq’s and picnics. We have a great selection for both of those. Ask us for ideas. FYI - watch for us at the end of the month on KEZI 5pm news. We have a drawing for $500 of meat products! (Don't miss the video on this blog - it's awesome)

Welcome to our newest vendor Our Family Farm out of Junction City (http://ourfamilyfarm.wordpress.com). Besides supplying us with free range chickens, they publish a cool blog also. The most recent entry addressed the 7 billion people on this planet and had a You Tube video by National Geographic that was so well done that we had to include it in this blog also.

Really gets you thinking about the planet and our local space here in Eugene.

Have a great June – see you soon.
