High quality, fresh, and local

Every Friday during the spring and fall semesters, the Meat Laboratory holds a sale in our retail store, The Butcher Block at Penn State.

From Penn State farms to Happy Valley plates, the Friday Meat Sale offers you a variety of meat products. We regularly feature fresh beef and pork, ham, bacon, and sausages, as well as beef snack sticks and summer sausage. Occasionally, lamb and poultry are available.

Hours

  • Fridays during Penn State’s fall and spring semesters
  • The sale starts at 9:30 a.m. and operates until 3:00 p.m. (or until we're sold out).
