I just started doing raw and am having difficulty finding places to get raw meats at a reasonable price. i was hoping someone had suggestions of specific places to shop. i know to look at ethnic markets but if anyone goes anywhere perticular please share. It would be greatly appreciated. I dont trust many places out here especially for raw products, so having specific shops or butchers etc would really be incredibly amazingly helpful!applausehappy dance

I googled my area to find grocery stores I didn't know existed and look through the weekly ads. Ethnic markets chains have online flyers and great deals some weeks. I went to Super King for the first time on New Year's Eve to get lamb ribs for $1 a pound 5 years ago [never happened again though] and my local kv mart almost always has some sort of big pork cut for $1 a pound.

If you have a flexible schedule then Creston Valley is awesome. The truck comes around every other week and you meet it at a freeway exit when it gets there. The driver keeps in touch with buyers via Twitter and phone.

There is a guy in Temecula posting on Craig's List that sells whole animals cut and packed that seems like a good deal to me but I haven't contacted him yet. Whether he would pack and sell all but the intestines or not I don't know. We raw feeders want lungs, trachea, head and all that where most buyers don't.

Don't forget your local market, the clearance rack may have some good deals. A couple months ago mine had half a dozen pounds of beef heart for only $1 a pound. I snapped those up so fast! I left whole chickens for $.70 a pound a couple weeks ago because I had lots of chicken already and the freezer was nearly full. About killed me but I left them behind. Just remember to figure price per pound, a tiny $2 package may not be as good a deal as a large $10 package. Chicken and pork are good deals if $1 a pound or less, beef a good deal if $3 a pound or less without much fat or bone, $2 if bony or fatty.
