The Juniper Pig brings a lineup of cured meats, prime cuts, rotisserie chicken, sandwiches and salads to Stanley Marketplace starting Saturday, November 11. One of the first stores to sign on at the Stanley (2501 Dallas Street, Aurora), the "culinary butchery" and charcuterie shop was one of the last to open, but the specialty meats were worth the wait.

Stephan considers several factors when choosing where he sources meat. “The first thing is respect for the product,” he says. He and his trio of chefs hand-pick each meat producer, working only with those that excel in humane animal treatment and raise premium breeds for meat production, including Duroc pork.
