The Butcher’s Block, Today’s Gourmet, done the Old-Fashioned Way!
Serving the Bloomington area Since 2004
The Butcher’s Block product mix, product lines, and purchasing decisions are based on many factors. These primary variables considered include: supporting local farms, overall meat quality, quality yield and grading (when applicable), availability, environmental sustainability, seasonality, customer and business value, animal care and welfare, raising methods, and food ethics. A good rule of thumb, if you don’t see it, just ask us. We do our best. Please address any specialty inquiries or sourcing questions not included on our site, by using our Ask the Butcher tab on our Info page.
Our seafood deliveries come daily, with our largest selections arriving Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons. We purchase according to market availability and value, with attention to environmental sustainability and health considerations. All seafood is either shipped overnight from our coastal business partners or driven directly from our Chicago hub distributor. None of our fresh seafood is ever warehoused. We welcome special orders at no additional charge. A few of our selections may be previously frozen due to origin or seasonality, and are denoted at the store accordingly. Special orders are no issue; we do them daily. We are here to help you out and want to make you happy, thanks!
