Saturday, April 27, 2013's Lowdown

(Above: Loleta Meat Market's Pixie Setterlund.) 

The beef between the Loleta Meat Market and the Loleta Bakery fired up the Eel River Valley a few months back after the bakery's owners -- who own the building the two businesses share -- told the beloved meat market its days in that space were numbered. (For more meat on that issue, go here.) Long story short: The meat market's gotta move. And it's gonna be expensive.

Cue community spirit. Saturday, the town of Loleta will band together in support of their favorite sausage maker, market meat magician Pixie Setterlund, at the Loleta Meat Market Luau to raise funds to relocate operations down the street in the old Gilded Rose. The Fireman's Pavilion will be filled with the sounds of local legit country ambassadors Rooster McClintock (see video below) and the event will feature the standard fundraiser money makers, i.e. beer, wine, auctions, raffles.

And, of course, there will be meat.
