About: 4505 Meats Story
Welcome to 4505 Meats. We’re a family owned company based in San Francisco, founded by chef Ryan Farr in January 2009. The company launched with one product, our lighter-than-air chicharrones, or “crispity clouds of porkaliciousness,” followed by our bacon-studded hot dogs. The business has grown from there: We've operated stands at Farmers’ Markets city-wide, where we sell “the best damn cheeseburger” other meaty treats. Currently we sell at the San Francisco Ferry Building Farmers Market on Thursdays and Saturdays. In 2012 we opened a full-service whole animal butcher shop in the Mission District 2012, where we sold responsibly and sustainably raised meat sourced from farms in Northern California. In 2013, we launched our restaurant, 4505 Burgers & BBQ, which serves—you guessed it—burgers, 4505 Meats-style barbecue and more. As of July 2015, our Butcher Shop is now closed. We remain committed to bringing you quality & delicious products at our Farmers Market stand, Restaurant, and specialty stores & bars nationwide.
