Gran Roca – Wed. Farm-to-Table Market – produce, pork, chicken, eggs

The Gran Roca Farm-to-Table Market will be on Wednesday from 2-3:30 PM at the restaurant Hummus, between Calle Santiago Carrasco and Rafael Torres Beltran, and adjacent to Parque Santa Anita only a couple of blocks east of the big 911 building in El Vergel.

Last week we were sold out early, so we'll be bringing more of the best tasting and healthiest pork chicken, eggs, fruits, and all the vegetables you need to our Farm-to-Table Market in Cuenca where you will find special varieties of produce not available anywhere else. Our sustainably grown fruits and vegetables are harvested in the morning for pick up in the afternoon. Can your favorite supermercado do that?
We will be bringing even more of our farm fresh, pastured Chicken Eggs ($1.25 per half dozen) to our Wednesday Farm-to-Table Market. The eggs are delicious with a creamy orange yolk unlike the commercial eggs that are yellow and runny.

We will also be bringing this week's newly butchered (to North American standards), beautiful, dry aged Pork Lover's Cuts (the very best Pork) to our Wednesday Farm-to-Table Market. (No need to order.)

If you are looking for the best tasting pasture raised chickens, you have come to the right place. Our chickens are housed in groups of fewer than 100, on pasture, in a protective Chicken Tractor, fed whole foods without antibiotics or hormones, are moved daily to fresh pasture without poop or smell, are able to scratch in the soil, eat grass and bugs and see the natural cycles of day and night. It is a lot harder to do it this way, but this is how you produce the best ingredients...that make the most delicious food...while supporting optimal health.

Because of higher than expected demand, we are currently sold out of our regular sized Broiler Chickens. However, we do have some of our "Party Chickens" (over 8 pounds) that are just as tender and delicious for the same 2.50/lb. For your convenience we can cut them in half and put each half into a separate bag, one to put in the freezer, the other to cook right away. Our custom butchered, pastured chickens need to be pre-ordered for pick-up at our Wednesday Farm-to-Table Market. Send an email to the contact info below letting us know (1) how many chickens you want, (2) whether whole or cut-up into parts, and (3) with or without organ meat. Chickens are processed in the morning, ready for you to cook in the afternoon. Fresh, Healthy, Delicious Chicken has never been so easy...Bon appétit.
