One of the surprising things about living in Calistoga, a small city of just over 5,000 people, is the rich and varied offerings of food and drink available.
In addition to world-class restaurants, wine tasting rooms, and full-service spa resorts, there’s Cal Mart. While we’re not a restaurant nor a resort, we can say that we have the best meat and seafood selection in our corner of Napa Valley. In fact, we like to think of ourselves as the Napa Valley Meat and Seafood market!
Meat and Seafood from the Highest Quality Local Sources
Cal Mart has always made it a practice to source our meats from farmers and ranchers who uphold sustainable and humane livestock and agriculture practices. Simply put, this means we only buy our products from those farms and ranches that avoid the use of antibiotics or added hormones, and whose livestock are raised outdoors or in deeply bedded pens.
Healthy and humane is a hallmark of our meat purveyors. And, in addition to maintaining carefully controlled high-quality feeding, and humane treatment of livestock, and exceptional animal management practices, our vendors are committed to environmentally friendly farming and ranching practices that are good for the earth. Cal Mart is proud to partner with providers of fine meats that are also dedicated to careful and responsible domestic resource management policies. Their ongoing, sustainable practices are an investment in our local environment, and together we are all contributing to a lasting change for our future.
Where to Go for Great Hand-Cut Meats and Fresh Seafood and Specialty Foods in Calistoga, CA
Almost every grocery store and market will offer a selection of meat products and, often, seafood, as well. And depending on the type and size of the store, the selection might be extensive.
And, sometimes, not so much.
More than likely, the selection will be limited and somewhat generic. In other words, beef, pork, and chicken. Often frozen and much of it from large meat processing plants scattered across the country. Nothing special, nothing particularly high-quality, and extraordinarily little that is local or organically raised.
However, at Cal Mart, we offer freshly packaged meat items including:
- Rocky® Free Range Chicken from Petaluma Poultry
- Superior Farms Lamb Products
- Hispanic Variety Meats
- And House-Ground Beef, Pork, and Lamb Products
We are also quite proud of our specialty foods selection that includes our house-made sausages that come in a dazzling variety of flavors such including garlic fennel, apricot and ginger, and hot and mild Italian. Our quality meat products are sourced from grass-fed or grain-fed animals raised on 100 percent vegetarian diets.
In addition, several of our specialty foods and meat suppliers are certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and are not dependent on outside feed sources.
Looking for seafood options?
At Cal Mart we offer a well-stocked freezer selection of freshly frozen seafood and shellfish products. And along with quality seafood items, our freezer selection includes harder-to-find meat such as:
- Goose (A Seasonal Treat!)
