Rain Shadow Meats

Rain Shadow Meats is located in Melrose Market in Capitol Hill. It shares a space with Homegrown (sandwiches), Marigold & Mint (flora and edibles), the Calf & Kid (artisan cheese), Bar Ferd'nand (drinks), Sitka and Spruce and a few other shops. Each item in the butcher case has a clear label where the goods originated from and their cost. They make sausages in-house. The bacon (pictured above) was as advertised, smokey with apple/maple flavor. The butchers are friendly and provide happy, competent service. While I was being helped a group of women stood with a cookbook open talking with another butcher about recipes. With three butchers working behind the counter this didn't cause a delay, just demonstrated more good service from Rain Shadow. They have whole chickens, eggs, rabbit, sausages, breakfast meat, lamb, a variety of ribs; anything that you might expect to find in a well-stocked butcher shop. My favorite butcher in Seattle.
