4505 Meats Farmers Market

4505 Meats is run by chef and artisan butcher Ryan Farr. Ryan formerly was executive chef at Fifth Floor. He teaches butcher classes and serves up food at the San Francisco Ferry Building Farmer’s Market. We saw them at the Eat Real festival in Oakland and on other occasions the Ferry building. They create homemade relishes, multi-national โ€™Zilla sauce, and even bacon-dressed chocolate desserts.

Decor, Vibe – 4505 Meats runs a generic looking stand at the farmers market with smoke spewing from the grill in the back.


Their Menu usually has Zilladogs, Chicharrones, and Cheeseburgers.

4505 Meats Cheeseburger

4505 Meats Cheeseburger Half Eaten
It was hard to stop eating it!

Cheeseburger ($5 at Eat Real festival, $7 for a bigger one at SF) lettuce, tomato, onion, shh spicy secret sauce was a pretty darn good burger. Cooked to a perfect and juicy medium rare, high quality meat, and a very high quality fluffy artisan bun. Small but great size to allow sampling other eats like the Roli Roti Porchetta sandwich or Prather Ranch hamburger.

Basil Sausage ($5) came on stick but was very good, featuring a little bit of zest and even some bits of basil inside.



Service – It took only a couple minutes to get our burger. Either take it as is or plain with meat and cheese.

Value – On the small size, so value is not good.

Verdict – 4505 Meats serves up a mean mini burger. Next time we’ll try the Zilla dog and Chicharrones! Give them a try at the Ferry Building Farmers Market on Saturdays.
