Here's an update about new meats, charcuteries, and seafood available at Bloomingfoods East. You'll find quality meat and seafood products at the Near West Side and Kirkwood stores, too.
We're happy to carry a good number of products from the Smoking Goose Meatery in Indianapolis, including:
Smoking Goose Smoked Turkey Breast at $9.59/lb
Smoking Goose Breakfast Sausage at $6.89/lb
Smoking Goose Delaware Fireball: This ball of fire is one of the original salumi created at Goose the Market, Smoking Goose’s butcher shop on Delaware Street in Indianapolis. This crepinette salame of coarsely ground pork is packed with crushed chili, espelette pepper and garlic. They wrap it in caul fat, then dry age and cold smoke it over hickory wood for a spicy salame that’s ideal for snacking. Priced at $11.39/lb.
Look, too, for Beeler Pork products: everything from bacon to pork franks and beyond. The Beeler company has its origins in the Loess Hills of Western Iowa. Today, they have developed Heluka® pork, a method of raising pigs that gives the animals access to fresh air and sunshine. The word Heluka® is derived from a Native American word meaning "full of sun."
All Beeler pork is natural—Beeler pigs are raised without any antibiotics or growth promotants, and are never fed animal by-products. Their diets consist of all vegetarian ingredients: corn, soybean meal, vitamins, and minerals.
You'll find Wild Alaska Salmon & Seafood Company Sockeye Salmon steak medallions in the fresh meat case. These are a perfect grilling item as the cooler weather approaches. Find some great recipes for Wild Alaska salmon here, including grilling tips.
Not for fish only: don’t forget to grab some of Captain Tony’s Wild Alaskan Rub, a perfectly blended mix of 13 herbs and spices ideal for salmon, shellfish, meats, and vegetables. This blend is 100% natural, with no preservatives, 4 oz.
