We're all about FRESHNESS...

Every wonder how long that meat has been sitting around at the Supermarket?

We grind our meat Saturday mornings at 4:30 am before the Market to ensure it's the very freshest it can be for  YOU at the market.  You'll taste the difference!

Our Meats

Vessel Services...

"Generally, I have my meat broken  down into primals and then I cut specifically onsite to order. Typically my  customers will tell me what they want to cook and then they will ask me for  recommendations. Because I cut from whole carcass, the quantity of cuts will vary  depending on the specific muscle they are asking for and part of my goal is to  help people understand that break down. '

 

Our Sausages!

Our speciality is our FRESH, gluten-free sausages!  They are handcrafted every Friday morning for Saturday's market. Quantities are always LIMITED and the flavours vary each week. There are no fillers or binders, we start with just pork & spices.  Some varieties will include a little cheese, fresh apples, olives, red peppers etc.  We don't use  preservatives either so they need to be eaten up or frozen by Sunday evening.  Put a little sizzle in your Sunday breakfast!

Beef - Hindquarter & Forequaters

What cut you're looking for depends on what your'e cooking.    Vessel can provide the recommendations you need to make it memorable.   We can cut nearly anything you're looking for; please note meat with a bone in it is a custom order and required a little advance notice...

Pork

We carry non-GMO fed pork from Little Dorset Farm and Heritage Berkshire from Shani's Farm.  You can taste the difference!


 

Lamb & Goat

Locally-raised young goats from Triple RT farms, and tender lamb from Andrew Hebda, a long-time leader in Nova Scotia lamb production.
