Why do grass-fed beef prices continue to go up?
You may have noticed that the price of grass-fed beef has continued to rise since this June. There are many factors contributing to these increases. Some of these include increased demand, smaller herds, the cost of land, cost of feed, and recent droughts. Unfortunately, this trend seems likely to continue. Farmers have had to push their increased costs onto us. In order to continue to provide local, quality, sustainably and ethically raised beef we’ve had to raise our prices.
Local Thousand Hills ground beef - sale $8.49/lb (reg $8.99/lb)
Local Thousand Hills snack sticks - $3.99/pack (reg $4.49/pack)
Local Kadejan chicken tenders - sale $5.99/lb (reg$7.99/lb)
Mississippi Market strives to support local, organic, antibiotic-free and hormone-free meat producers, knowing exactly where our meats come from and how the animals were raised. In fact, about 90% of the meat we purchase comes from local producers or locally-owned businesses! Our West 7th store location offers a full-service meat counter serving locally produced beef, pork, and lamb that are all cut and ground in-house.
Since our in-house butchers at the West 7th store provide fresh cuts to the Selby store, you’ll be able to find what you are looking for at both of our locations.
