Meet The Team


Josh Anderson - Lead Butcher


Josh, a Phoenix native, is husband and father first. He has dedicated his life to raising 4 great kids with his wife Gabby.


Josh started in the meat business during a 6 year hiatus from AZ., when he and his family moved to Wasilla, Alaska. 


When moving back to Phoenix in 2014, he began back at the bottom, cleaning the cutting room floor and washing dishes at The Meat Shop in South Phoenix. 

During his time there, he worked his way up the ladder and when he left them to join our team, he was breaking down full beef and hogs and was a perfect fit for our Butcher shop.


Josh joined us in July of 2019 and he's never stopped hustling since he first stepped through the door.

He is in charge of all the daily orders, stocking the cases & making sure our

chef team has the all meat required to keep our freezers amply stocked. 



Roni was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. She grew up racing barrel horses since the age of 9, throughout the US, but mostly in the West. 


As a graduate of UNLV's Culinary Management program, she cut her teeth in the kitchen of Thomas Keller's Bouchon in the Venetian.

After a short time working pastry & bakery production, she moved to the dining room where her love of hospitality took root. In the following decade she would work with great chefs and leaders to assist in opening 7 great establishments throughout the country.


Roni moved from Atlanta to Phoenix in the fall of 2013 to find a work-life balance and be able to focus on her horses... which was short lived. After working at a Cave Creek Restaurant as a bartender for 2 years she decided the area could really use a butcher shop to supply the locals with better quality than what the grocery stores could offer.


The idea for The Meat Market was born in December of 2015, and with the help of her boyfriend (who is in the construction industry) the shop opened up in record speed  October 2016. 


Butcher's Apprentice, Sausage Maker & Prep Cook

Duffy is the newest member of our family and has quickly made a great impact on our shop. He joined us in the Fall of 2021 to lend a hand to Josh and Dale, and his quiet, head down, non stop working ethics have helped in getting The Meat Market through another growth spirt. 
He's a little on the quiet side, but don't let that fool you, he's got a positive "do anything" attitude and we are super lucky to have in our corner.
