What Do People Say About Darcy’s Meat Market?

Hi, D’Arcy’s,

Finding out that my daughter has a serious sensitivity to gluten was the beginning of my education into eating gluten free. Since then, every time I want to prepare a meal that includes foods my daughter can eat, I have to ask myself: Where can I find gluten free products in Edmonton?

The other day I wanted to make ‘Smoky Country-Style BBQ Pork Ribs in the Slow Cooker’ from the Year of Slow Cooking web site, which features lots of gluten free recipes.

I headed to your shop, D’Arcy’s Meat Market in St. Albert, for the 3.5 lbs. of pork baby back ribs that the recipe called for. I always feel comfortable asking your friendly clerks for help when I’m not sure about a cut of meat or about how much to buy to have enough when the whole family comes over. Today, my question was about whether 3.5 lbs would feed 5 adults and 3 children.

While I was there, I discovered that D’Arcy’s carries some gluten free products. “Bonus!” I thought. A great place for meat near Edmonton – and they carry gluten free items.

While the clerk was packaging my pork ribs, I checked out the display of House of Q BBQ sauces – and found that House of Q is gluten free. You probably already know that these products are gluten free, but lots of people with gluten sensitivities like to check these things for themselves. “Double bonus!” House of Q has product sheets that list all of the ingredients. Hmmm…. Should I try the Apple Butter BBQ sauce or the Sugar and Spice BBQ sauce next time?



  1. That’s true, our products are gluten free. The Apple Butter BBQ Sauce is a great sauce to start your adventures with House of Q. The Sugar and Spice BBQ Sauce is a nice contrast sauce in that it starts off really sweet but then it changes to spicy after you swallow. But a fan favorite is the Slow Smoke Gold Sauce… it’s awesome on chicken and pork and anything sausage!

  2. I found them this year looking for dog bones and bought a few things and was impressed.

    My husband and I decided to buy a freezer pack and when they were putting it together I got fresh meat, hamburger and was very impressed.

    The meat is so good and I will keep buying my meat from them for years to come. Thank you.
