Old Town Market Rocks The Tri-Tip

February 28, 2017

Where there’s smoke, there’s barbecue!

Such is the case with Santa Maria Valley’s Old Town Market. Located in the hamlet of Orcutt, Old Town Market makes Santa Maria Style tri-tip an integral part of its weekly offerings. Here, proprietor Mark Stellar and his crew captivate both visitors and locals alike with the aromas and flavors of the market’s all-day Saturday barbecues, with tri-tip cooked the traditional way over coals of local red oak.

Located along a popular route for road cyclists, the market also caters to many long-distance travelers, some of whom are trying Santa Maria Style tri-tip for the first time. In addition to its extensive deli and fresh meats and produce, Old Town Market also features a world-class wine department with hundreds of varietal selections from more than 70 local wineries, including tough-to-find boutique winery offerings.

Wine and barbecue pairing can be explored at the market’s Saturday evening wine tastings, which feature a different local winery each week. Old Town Market is also renowned for its on-site antique shop, as well as its annual Gift Show and Antique Sale.
