Where's the Beef? Caputo's Butcher Shop

If, like me, you've bemoaned the lack of decent butcher shops in our area, I have good news. On Saturday, June 16, Caputo's Market & Deli will open an "old-world" butcher shop at its downtown location (300 W. 300 South). --- 

"We're ecstatic to bring a year-round source for fresh, pasture-raised meat to our customers," said Matt Caputo, director of marketing. "The state is seeing a growth of small-scale, family operations that cultivate good meat and take care of the land," Caputo added. "And in the end, it creates delicious meat."

Caputo's Butcher Shop will feature Utah Heritage breeds, which are pasture-grazed on micro ranches -- no industrial pens or unhygienic, crowded spaces. The Butcher Shop will offer fresh beef, pork, lamb from Snowy Mountain Sheep Creamery, Christiansen Family Farms, and Pleasant Valley Ranch, with goat and poultry to soon follow. 

I'm also thrilled to see the return of Frody Volgger, former owner/chef of Vienna Bistro, to the fray as Caputo's on-site butcher. He'll be offering a complete line of cured and smoked meats, including speck, jagdwurst, chorizo, linquica, guanciale, lamb sausages and much more, all made in-house.

Caputo's Butcher Shop invites the public to celebrate its opening, all day long on Saturday, June 16th.
