A note from Ryan Farr announcing the forthcoming 4505 Meats Butcher Shop, opening soon on Mission Street

Ryan Farr has been the king of the meat scene in SF for a few years now, and he’s a very bloggable dude (see the “previously” section at the bottom of this post), so we’re very happy for him and 4505 Meats that they’re finally opening their very own shop. Here we go:

It’s with great excitement that I share the news that 4505 Meats is opening up a small butcher shop in a couple weeks at 1909 Mission St. (at 15th St.), four blocks from Rainbow Grocery, just around the corner from the 16th street BART station and a block away from Four Barrel.

Opening a shop is something we’ve been talking about for four years, and now– after two babies, over 100 classes, and two books (4505 Meats’ Sausage Book will be released by Chronicle Books in the spring of 2014), we are finally doing it.

The shop’s opening hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday to start. My wife Cesalee and I have lived a block away from this space for over 10 years; we believe in this neighborhood and think our butcher shop will help make it an ever more dynamic place to live and work. We’re also working on a larger concept in a different location of the Mission, which we hope to open next year.

I will be there daily, cutting and grinding meat to order, and will always be happy to answer your cooking and butchering questions. The shop will also be serving ready-to-eat hot 4505 sausages and dogs with house-made sauerkraut and mustard, and smoked meat by the pound. We’ll also have the infamous ’Zilla Dog: our bacon- studded hot dog smothered in chicharrones and Namu kimchee, in addition to the sexy Kink Dog and other tasty dogs in the normal 4505 fashion.

A variety of cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, sausages, bones, fat, stock and other prepared items like pork green chili, deli meats and terrines en croute will be available for you to take home and enjoy. In addition, we’ll have your holiday needs covered with smoked hams, stuffed pork roasts, truffled geese, and an abundance of festive holiday treats. And of course, there will be chicharrones!

We will continue to be at the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Markets on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays, the Mission Community Market on Thursday nights, and the Montclair Farmer’s Market and Divisadero Farmers Market on Sundays as well.

With gratitude,

Ryan and Cesalee Farr, and the 4505 Meats Crew

Congrats, y’all!

    Yes! This is an excellent counterpoint to all of the absurdly unappetizing and delusional vegan cult postings in here… Pass the B12, please.

    This fantastic news pleases me.

    Hope they don’t pull business away from Drewes!

    • What? says:

      Drewes is so many blocks away, there are like four or five butcher shops between the two locations. Do you post first, then think? Also Drewes is gross.

      • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

        People from all over the city go to Drewes, because it is awesome. You are full of crazy.

      • Sfnola says:

        Drewes is gross? Wow, I don’t even know where to start on that one. By any reasonable standard, Drewes is one of the top butchers in the city. If you think Drewes is gross, get it over and just move to the suburbs where you can buy everything packaged in nice little plastic pouches.

        Drewes is one of the finest independently-owned establishments in the city, prices things fairly, will order you anything you ask for, will cut meat to your specifications, and are some of the nicest people there are to buy from. Bagging on them paints you as nothing but a gigantic douche.
