Here in Portland, Oregon, we are blessed with a bounty of local, free range, organic farms. We are also blessed with some friendly and knowledgeable local butchers who we can buy these meats from. All the listed butchers are locally owned.
Sheridan Fruit Market
Don’t let the name fool you. This place is one of the best butchers in town.
They carry local, natural, and free range meats. These meats include options such as rabbit and quail, and more exotic options such as wild boar. They carry delicious homemade sausages that run the length of the entire back wall of the store, which are not to be missed. The butchers are friendly and knowledgeable, and always seem to have a smile.

A sophisticated butcher shop, they carry everything from local and natural meats, to house made salami, pate, sausage, charcuterie, bacon, and more. The butchers are knowledgeable, and eager to teach you about their many homemade creations.

Oh, and their kids get a free pepperoni stick when they visit.
