The Mountain View farmers’ market has a lot going for it–great prices, huge selection, good hours. And now, they’ve got a real butcher’s stand, selling all sorts of pig products, says thejulia. Country pate is incredible–very garlicky but still clean-tasting, and totally addictive. “I started eating it without the bread,” says thejulia.
zartemis is familiar with the butcher’s work, and likes what he did with the two pasture-raised pigs she bought from TLC Ranch. She particularly recommends the rilettes he makes from TLC chickens.
