Heading into grilling season, it’s hard not to get excited about all the delicious foods that will grace plates, from meats and fish to seasonal vegetables and fruits. At Market of Choice, we’ve got all the goods you’ll need to make your grilling fare the best it can be, including barbecue sauces, rubs and seasonings, and grilling gadgets, too.

Block & Blade’s promise of quality

Grilling adventures begin at your Market Meat & Seafood Department. Through our Block & Blade program, we forge reliable partnerships with local ranchers and fisherfolk to ensure that we offer premium provisions for your table. We focus on humanely raised meats that are antibiotic and hormone free and seafood that’s sustainably sourced.

Our Meat & Seafood Department is adept at answering any questions you might have about the best cuts of meat for grilling, as well as preparing grill-ready entrées already seasoned or marinated and ready for you to take home and cook. Be sure to check back often so you don’t miss our seasonal grill-ready favorites, including:

  • Burger Patties, such as Cheddar Bacon, Chipotle Bacon Cheddar or Firecracker
  • Smokehouse Rubbed Chicken Breasts
  • Grilling steaks, dry-rubbed with a bold and savory seasoning
  • Pork Sausage Links, made in-house by your Market Butchers in three varieties: Hungarian, German Bratwurst, or English Banger
  • Beef, Chicken or Seafood Kabobs
  • Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Peppers

Ask your Market team members to point you in the direction of our wonderful selection of locally made barbecue sauces, rubs and seasonings, typically found in our grocery aisles and Meat & Seafood Department. Some of our favorite Oregon-made choices include Hoss Soss, American Soul Brothers, Felton & Mary’s and Sugarpine’s Sweet Smoke Barbecue Sauce.

Grilled vegetables and fruits

This year, we’re getting excited about many other “grillables,” such as vegetables and fruits. Be sure to add to your grilling menu classic corn on the cob and other favorites: eggplant, peppers, carrots, mushrooms, summer squash, tomatoes, avocado – really anything that entices your taste buds can go on the barbecue! Fruit, too, is delicious when grilled. Peaches, melons, figs, pineapple, pears – all are tasty when grilled. These also pair well with meats and fish, skewered together and grilled to make kabobs.

We’ve got lots of grilled fruit and veggie recipes for you to try, too. Just visit our recipes page and search “grilled” for a whole recipe collection of possibilities. For fruits and veggies fans, try Shrimp and Melon Ceviche in Grilled Avocado, Grilled Peach and Apricot, Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Salad, Fresh Grilled Vegetable Stack, or Grilled Three-Potato Salad.
