I buy ours at the grocery store or the commissary. I would like to go to the meat market but I never seem to have time to get there. Where do you buy your meat at?

I buy my meat at the butcher shop, not at the supermarket normally. I like it that the butcher will cut exactly the piece I want.

If the grocery store is having a good sale then we will get it there but we normally go to the meat market because meat there is cheaper than going to the grocery store when there is no sale going on. When gas prices went up seems food did as well so we are always looking for a good deal. I hear beef prices will be going up in October just a heads up so if you see a good sale might want to toss some in the freezer.

I buy mine from the butchers becuase i can get exactly what quantities and cuts that i want, the meat is sourced locally, the quality is very high and the prices are cheap. I would never buy it from the supermakerk, it's so expensive and you hardly get any plus it's mostly just packaging. I also don't think it's very fresh at the supermarket.

I try to get a lot of my meat at the commissary cause it is cheaper there. but if i can't get to the comissary then I go to Food Lion mostly cause they have real good sales on meat.

I buy my meat from Costco's, I eat chicken and my husband eats steak, so I am able to buy large packs which will last us for quite sometime, and it comes out much cheaper than buying it from the grocery store.

I buy my meat at the local supermarket. We really don't have any meat markets around where I live. So actually I don't have much of a choice. There are basically 2 or 3 main supermarkets to choose from and I only shop at 2. Now the 1 that I usually shop at has been bought out by the other so I am basically shopping at 1 store with 2 names. So they are trying to outbid each other on prices??? It's kind of stupid being that they really are now the same store, they just are still going by the old name of the 1 store. Oh, it's confusing. So each week I look at both store circulars to see which store has the better sale. Yes, they are competing with each other!

I buy mine at the supermarket as my local supermarket (Morrisons) has in in-store butcher and has nice meat. We have a market twice a week where I live but I don't like the look of the butcher there as his stall always smells as you go past and he does not use fridges. If it looked fresher I would prefer to buy from the market or a local butcher to help local traders.

I buy my meat at the grocery store when I buy all my other groceries. I have never been to a meat market to get my meat before. I have always thought about going to one, but I have never taken the time to do it.

There is a really good farmers market here in Guelph, and the best part, besides all the wonderful meat and produce and milk within, is that this wonderful farmer's market is right next door to our apartment. my husband runs up there every saturday morning to buy fresh food for us to eat that week.
