Meat & Seafood


Want to know who’s raising your meat? The Healthy Living Meat Department has made long-lasting connections with farmers who we’ve come to know personally. We offer local, organic, humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone-free options for beef, poultry, pork, lamb and more. We purchase whole animals from local farms and butcher them in-house, which makes for a superb cut, zero waste of the animal, and is good for the farmer’s bottom line. Our talented in-house butchers source the best specialty meats and create a plethora of unique charcuterie — from sausage to pâté and everything in between. Our team can fill any special order you may have in mind.

As for seafood, we’re proud to partner with Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program to help spread awareness of seafood sustainability by offering delicious seafood options that are healthy for you and the environment. We also work closely with the suppliers who purchase our seafood direct from the docks as soon as boats anchor, ensuring Healthy Living customers get the freshest fish available!

We think you’ll agree that our Meat and Seafood Department is amazing — it’s a testament to knowledge, experience, and a deep commitment to supporting local farmers and small suppliers who have a serious passion for their art!
