When Saugatuck Center opened a few years ago, Saugatuck (now Fleishers) Craft Butchery helped deliver the buzz.
Now — as Bedford Square attempts to draw folks downtown — it’s adding its own field-to-table butcher shop.
M.EAT Organic Beef & Provisions opens this spring. The “old-school meat market with new school fundamentals” offers high-quality beef and lamb from Uruguay, Argentina, New Zealand and Australia.
In addition to hand butchering, M.EAT will feature a “burger bar,” where customers can choose their own grind of meat types and fat content, accompanying organic cheeses and produce, as well as seasoning products, and cooking and equipment aids.
M.EAT will also carry domestic organic meat and chicken, with ingredients from local farmers and artisans.
It’s expected to open in late May.
