LEAN GREEN PROTEIN
GRASS FED BEEF
June 3rd marked the first day of the first annual Grass Fed Beef Week here in San Diego and the North Park Farmers' Market is proud to have a grass fed beef vendor of our own. Da Le Ranch. Though not exclusively grass fed, the beef at Da Le Ranch is pastured and occasionally supplemented with hay when the grass pickings are slim, making for some tasty - and responsibly raised - meat.
Organizers of this week-long event describe it as offering "opportunities for foodies, the health conscious, and beef lovers looking for sustainable options to enjoy the unadulterated flavor that grass fed beef brings to the table, along with the nutritional benefits of lower fat and increased omega-3 fatty acids." With 6 restaurants and Whole Foods Hillcrest all participating you'll find specials featuring the "green" protein around town for you to sample and appreciate.
So after you fill your bags and baskets with fruits, veggies and more from favorites like Suzie's Farm, R&L Farms and JR Organics, Springhill Cheese and Lisko Imports, head down the street a bit to The Linkery or El Take It Easy for deliciously prepared specials featuring grass fed beef. Keeping it local, delicious and sustainable.
