Retail Meats and Cheeses

We have been here since 1925 and since then laws have changed and you are no longer able to build and have a walk in real wood smoker in your building! So, we are truly a one of a kind meat market.

Most meat markets smoke their meat in a smoker cooker that is computerized- you set a temp, add wood chips, liquid smoke and they call that home smoked. But that’s not home smoked. We do smoking the old-fashioned way with only wood and wood chunks. The temperature is controlled by an expert who monitors the smoking process so our meats and cheese comes out delicious every time.

Ketter’s Meat Market is well known for their smoking process. Slow and steady is the name of the game here. Our smoked hams, bacon, sausages and meat sticks will have you saying, “You Can’t Beat Ketter’s Meat!” We offer smoking of your trout, tullibee or any other wild caught fish. Some butcher shops use artificial smoke flavorings and other tricks to imitate the REAL DEAL, genuine smoke flavor that you’ll only find at Ketter’s.


We have several displays of retail meats, sliced deli meats and cheeses always available. Our expert staff can recommend the perfect choices for every occasion from low-cost family dinners to high-end cuts for your next get together. Like butchers from days gone by, Ketter’s Meats will also cut any selection to your specification.

Plenty of frozen food choices are also readily available for quick and easy meals. Get the freshest seafood available in Frazee such as shellfish, fresh fish, shrimp, crab and lobster from our convenient Main Street location.

On the shelves you’ll find spices, rubs, and bar-b-que sauces, plus authentic wild rice and maple syrup.  When you step into Ketter’s you’ll be stepping into a Minnesota tradition. The old-fashioned, friendly, knowledgeable service is almost unheard of these days.
