What Do People Say About Darcy’s Meat Market?

One of our customers kindly sent this to us and we wanted to share it with you!

Hi, D’Arcy’s,

Finding out that my daughter has a serious sensitivity to gluten was the beginning of my education into eating gluten free. Since then, every time I want to prepare a meal that includes foods my daughter can eat, I have to ask myself: Where can I find gluten free products in Edmonton?

The other day I wanted to make ‘Smoky Country-Style BBQ Pork Ribs in the Slow Cooker’ from the Year of Slow Cooking web site, which features lots of gluten free recipes.

I headed to your shop, D’Arcy’s Meat Market in St. Albert, for the 3.5 lbs. of pork baby back ribs that the recipe called for. I always feel comfortable asking your friendly clerks for help when I’m not sure about a cut of meat or about how much to buy to have enough when the whole family comes over. Today, my question was about whether 3.5 lbs would feed 5 adults and 3 children.

While I was there, I discovered that D’Arcy’s carries some gluten free products. “Bonus!” I thought. A great place for meat near Edmonton – and they carry gluten free items.

While the clerk was packaging my pork ribs, I checked out the display of House of Q BBQ sauces – and found that House of Q is gluten free. You probably already know that these products are gluten free, but lots of people with gluten sensitivities like to check these things for themselves. “Double bonus!” House of Q has product sheets that list all of the ingredients. Hmmm…. Should I try the Apple Butter BBQ sauce or the Sugar and Spice BBQ sauce next time?

    That’s true, our products are gluten free. The Apple Butter BBQ Sauce is a great sauce to start your adventures with House of Q. The Sugar and Spice BBQ Sauce is a nice contrast sauce in that it starts off really sweet but then it changes to spicy after you swallow. But a fan favorite is the Slow Smoke Gold Sauce… it’s awesome on chicken and pork and anything sausage!

    I found them this year looking for dog bones and bought a few things and was impressed.

    My husband and I decided to buy a freezer pack and when they were putting it together I got fresh meat, hamburger and was very impressed.

    The meat is so good and I will keep buying my meat from them for years to come. Thank you.
