SFP's Laptop Butchershop celebrates ten years of connecting Pittsburgh with organic and/or carefully-raised local meats and poultry. Animals are pastured, meaning they are raised outdoors on grass, the way nature intended. Some animals are fed grains, also carefully raised. The meat is exceptionally delicious and heart-healthy, rich in correctly balanced CLA's/nutrients. These products contain no additives, no antibiotics and no hormones. Many vendors allow you to pick the cuts and quantity you want--just like a real butchershop. Please understand: our producers work on avery small scale--this is why we love them! But, they must sell the whole animal, not just steaks, loins and chops so try roasts and ground meat.
WHAT: Place your e-mail pre-orders now--see individual vendor cut-off dates. 
PICK-UP: Pay when you pick up Sat., Nov. 23 from 9 am - 1 pm

Slow Food Pittsburgh

Food is a common language and universal right.

 Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes,

how our food choices affect the rest of the world.

Slow Food USA envisions a world in which all people can eat food that is good for them,

good for the people who grow it and good for the planet. In essence, food that is good, clean and fair.

You don't have to be a member of Slow Food to attend Slow Food Pittsburgh events; but by becoming a member, you'll influence goals from better school lunches to a level playing field for local growers.
