Rain Shadow Meats is a full service butchery featuring all local meats, house made charcutière, and a custom curing room. We are centrally located in the Melrose Market at the base of Capitol Hill in downtown Seattle.

Our mission is to bring back the local neighborhood butcher with an emphasis on whole animal butchery, education, and the creation of community. We work with local farms to provide farmers with a means to reach the public through our customers and to guarantee the highest quality products. Rain Shadow Meats will promote education and customer service by offering classes in meat and butchery, custom cuts, and special orders. Please ask if you have a personal request.

Come by the shop to visit and check out your local, neighborhood butcher. We welcome your questions and comments.

Russell Flint has over ten years of experience with butchery and is most recently known for his culinary skills as the Sous Chef at the Boat Street Café. His restaurant background and strong interest in food education will be instrumental to your experience at Rain Shadow Meats.
