Meat is all they do, and since 1945 they have been providing their customers with the very best meat in the area. Though they're known for their marinated meats (including the "World-famous" tri-tip), their family owned and operated store is a throwback to the meat markets that your parents -and grandparents- bought their meat at. They have over 350 different products in their ever-growing line of products, so you're sure to find something that will be just right for you.

Bringing a taste of California to Plymouth, the Pantry's products are available for tasting. Upgrade your spice cabinets and refrigerator shelves by incorporating one-of-a-kind products from small -batch kitchens.

Find lovely eats, made right here in Amador County. Let us fix you a cup of coffee or tea and elevate your palate with gold-medal infused wine truffles, made in-house.
