There's a meat market on 248th in Langley called Bonettis. They farm the meat, cut it, and sell it all at the same location. Meat so fresh, it hasn't been dead for a whole day before it hits the bbq.

While you're out there, take advantage of the free range eggs sold at markets, and even along the side streets in rural Langley and aldergrove. On 232nd, you'll find a farm market with some of the finest veggies around. Since it's all farmed there, the delay from harvest to your table is a lot less than mass produced Safeway crap.

I'm tired of big supermarket's tasteless produce.

Okay, I hate to admit this but.......... we had chickens when I was growing up.


Yeah, have your laughs, I know it makes me a redneck, but I'm one of the few here who can clean and cut a chicken, so there.


Anyway, we had a lot of chickens, in fact for years we never went to Safeway, or places like that. I'll agree that every once in a while they would get into scraps, but a well taken care of flock will never have a dead chicken in general population long enough for the others to have a snack. In fact, well fed flocks would rarely fight, as there was nothing to fight about.

Plus the taste was above and beyond mass produced fowl. Both meat, and eggs, I miss those days.

Nothing beats eggs that are fresh from the chicken! still warm when you're cracking it into the pan. It's awesome how yellow the yolk is compared to the eggs you get from supermarkets. And i agree, the chickens i've raised would almost never fight, because they had enough room and food where they wouldn't have to "argue" over it. The only dead chickens we would get is from hawks or coyotes getting into the coops.

Well i buy organic fresh meat and fish only. I know a butcher there who can cut meat to my specs. Capers on 4th sometimes has decent meat. Choices on the 16th wand 57th would be my choice.
For cold cuts and cheese I hit, The Drive - Santa Barbara to be precise and La Grotta.

As a feller white-boy from a small town, I had chickens too (and pigs). And no, a well taken-care of flock won't be killing each other all the time. But little scraps chickens have are often enough for them... I mean think of it, they peck at each other, picking each other apart bit by bit. Maybe it's not a huge issue that makes free-range unworthy of consideration, but it's still a funny fact to me.

Free range usually tastes a lot better than typically farmed chicken, but they often aren't very meaty.

Anyway, duck and goose > chicken * 10000

True. Other than the massive layer of fat, the actual meat of duck and goose is leaner and tastier than chicken.

Gotta love growing up on a farm.
I'd laugh when I would watch Sesame Street, and the kids from the Bronx had to be bussed to the farm. They didn't even know what a cow was.


I'm with you on the duck/goose, definately.
I couldn't survive eating it all the time though. So fatty.

bumping an old thread.

Is there any place where I can buy hot pot meat for a decent price? So far all I've checked was TnT but it seemed kind of pricey that I rather just go to a restaurant. I'm not a meat expert nor do I do much grocery shopping so I don't really know what's a good deal or what is good quality meat.

Any help would be appreciated (especially by tomorrow since I'm planning on having it tomorrow. lol). Thanks in advance

Edit: I will be checking out nikuya tomorrow by the way from what people have said in this thread and also because I live near.

Two EE's for produce. Cheap, fresh, and high turnover. Surrey, Fraser and 164th.

Glory Meats for, well, meats. Cheaper than the supermarkets, always a good cut of meat when I go there. 144th and 104th in Surrey.
