Decades ago, brothers Bob and Earl Green founded a business dealing in red meat and seafood on April Fools' Day. Later, on another fateful April 1, they passed the shop to Bob's son and daughter-in-law, and today, more than 50 years since its 1958 opening, B & E Meats and Seafood still cuts, smokes, and marinates prime carnivorous fare at three locations.
Beef raised in Washington and Oregon comes to B & E Meats in three variants: natural, traditional, and grass-fed on the grounds of Harlow Ranch. The staff preps T-bones and tenderloins alongside signature kalbi beef ribs, whose soy, ginger, garlic, and sesame-oil marinade evokes tropical barbecues. Such meticulous seasoning is par for the course—the staffers smoke their beef jerky for up to six hours with alder and cherry-wood chips to preserve rustic flavor, and they cover pork roasts in sea salt before wrapping them in banana leaves. Their smoked candy salmon also boasts a tantalizing mix of sweet and salty notes, and corned beef comes traditionally cured for St. Patrick's Day.
Freezer variety packs tempt those who can’t decide on one meal with 25–100 pounds of cuts and goodies, which include steaks, roasts, ground beef, and bacon. In the interest of convenience, the store provides cooking instructions for many of its popular dishes, as well as game-processing services that package meats by weight.
Under red-and-white striped tents, handwritten signs beckon passersby over to wheeled carts filled with bundles of greens or smooth, symmetrical apples. At Newcastle Fruit & Produce’s open-air market, visitors survey a vast selection of seasonal, locally sourced fruit and vegetables that can include Bartlett pears, red-leaf lettuce, Yakima asparagus, and blueberries. Aside from assembling salad essentials, Newcastle’s team also stocks shrubs, perennials, and potted trees, and cuts pines for Christmas or anti-Arbor Day celebrations.
