Students in the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources open the Mizzou Meat Market's doors each Wednesday and Friday to serve up USDA-approved meats from university-raised livestock. A large selection of fresh meats includes beef, pork, lamb, and other prepared items. Aristocratic alphabet enthusiasts can cast off stores of proletarian SpaghettiOs for a T-bone steak upgrade ($6.99 per pound). A pound of bacon ($2.89 per pound) wakes weekend tailgaters with a satisfying sizzle, prepping palates for an afternoon of applying grill stripes to newly ground cheeseburger patties ($2.49).

The market is open Wednesday and Friday from 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., though customers can order by phone or appointment throughout the week.
