Butcher Shop Set to Open in Phoenix’s Arcadia Neighborhood

Old-school butcher is bringing the beef to Phoenix. Arcadia Meat Market, will open next month at 3950 E. Indian School Road, located in the popular Arcadia neighborhood.

January 11th is the proposed open date for Arcadia Meat Market which will be located at the northwest corner of 40th Street and Indian School.

The clean eating concept comes from Nick Addante, who has worked at Arizona’s only certified grass-fed beef producer, and master butcher Luigi Paroli — who grew up in the butcher business in New Zealand.

The market plans to sell pasture-raised grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range organic chicken pasture-raised pork, eggs and more from some of the top butchers and ranchers in the West including from Arizona, Colorado, California, Oregon and Utah.

“All our meats are free range and pasture-raised, never had any antibiotics or hormones, and the animals we sell have always eaten healthy food resulting in the best quality meats,” Addante said. “We believe that healthy animals raised in open pastures make for a healthier planet and healthy happy customers. We work with producers that care about our planet and the animals they raise. Our ranchers practice sustainable farming methods so their business may continue to thrive for generations to come.”

All meats will be hand-cut on site and customers will be able to view the slicing in person through small windows that allow a view into the cutting room and cooler. In addition, the market also will sell prepared goods including grab-and-go dinner packs that are free of preservatives, harmful chemicals and GMOs.

“It’s all about bringing back trust and transparency, because I was raised on that, including 8,000 hours of training under a master butcher in Wellington, New Zealand,” Paroli said. “I’ve run butcher shops from Alaska to Manhattan and it all comes back to good, healthy, grass fed, pasture raised, organic proteins. Plus, you can come and get something specially cut for you and feel good about providing for your family.”
