Let's Start with April Fools Day

No Joke
Hello out there ! We always publish this blog on the 1st of every month, and since today is April Fools day should we make some jokes? We found some butcher jokes out there on Google but didn't like any of them. So we have to say that we are not kidding about how much we appreciate our customers, all of the great feedback that we have, and that we have the best quality meats in town for reasonable prices. 

Important days this month:

World Health Day (April 7th) Buddha's birthday (April 8th), Thai New Year (April 13th),
Earth Day (April 22),  Take Our Children to Work Day (4th Thursday) , Arbor Day (last Friday of April)


"Roto-Wednesdays" - rotisserie chicken available from 4-6pm. Call ahead to reserve one on Wednesdays or any day.

Everyday: 

Growlers are Here - Enjoy the Cold Beer


Growlers are 64 oz generic bottles that we provide for a deposit, and allow you to get a fill or refill of two types of beer that we now have on tap for reasonable prices. Right now we offer Ninkasi Spring Reign and Descender Good Life IPA, both very popular beers.

Prices for both beers: : $15 deposit for a Growler bottle if you don't have your own. 20 cents an ounce, $12.80 to fill a 64 oz bottle. Have a glass here? $3.50 a pint, either beer.

Our Legacy - A Long Tradition From Charnelton to SouthTowne Shoppes and Facebook
There’s something cool about vintage
. To know that a business has been going for over 100 years, and is still family owned. To see the traditions of Old World style artisan meat preparation coming back and enhancing our product choices, and our palettes. This month we are honoring the traditions and time-tested meat preparation methods which are reflected in our goal of providing quality meats both locally and from vintage companies. We also have a legacy that goes back to 1927 on Charnelton St. You can read about that on our web site if you are interested. Here's some vintage traditions from a few of our artisan meat vendors.


P.G. Molinari is a name that has meant excellence in Italian salami and sausage for over 100 years. Founded in 1896, Molinari & Sons has carried on the traditional Italian art of sausage-making in the cool climate of San Francisco. Through four generations, the Molinari family has provided Americans with the finest in salamis and Italian sausages of all types. As a family-owned business, P.G. Molinari and Sons continues the tradition of quality products and service.



Saag’s Products LLC, a small San Francisco Bay Area manufacturer, maintains the tradition of handcrafted sausages and deli meats first practiced by its founder in 1933 and continued today by artisans who take pride in their work. George Saag set out to create authentic German specialty meats and sausages. Using old-world recipes in a small butcher shop in downtown Oakland, California, he perfected his craft and Saag’s quickly became a local favorite.

Boar's Head
Boar's Head -Family owned for over 100 years

The first delicatessen products were distributed using the name Boar's Head Brand in the New York City area in 1905. Products were delivered by horse-drawn wagon to small delicatessens and "Mom and Pop" stores. By 1933, distribution of Boar's Head Brand products had grown. It was at that time that the founder, Frank Brunckhorst, dissatisfied with the quality of cooked hams which were available to him, decided that he would open a manufacturing plant of his own. The first plant was started in a small building in Brooklyn with only three employees.

Wishing all of you an awesome April and Spring Season,
from all of us at Long's Meat Market
