A classically-trained chef who fell in love with the art of butchery. Rusty opened Pine Street Market in 2008 to provide quality hand-crafted artisan meat provisions. An enthusiastic educator, on any given Saturday, you can find him teaching classes ranging from whole hog butchery to sausage-making and curing meats. When he’s not teaching classes, you can find him popping in at local farmer’s markets to give cooking demonstrations or chat with local purveyors, in the production area of Pine Street Market working on a new creation to share with his loyal customers, or hanging out with his financée, Summer, and Gracie, the quirky cockapoo.
T.A. brings years of experience with logistics and fulfillment, making for a detail oriented, industrious, and hard working captain of the shipping department. Their motto is “it’s much more than just counting meat and putting it in a box”. Trish also brings humor to the team with their expansive list of dad jokes.
