Just wondering if anyone knew where Asian markets (Fubonn in particular) source their meat? I'd be ok with just anti-biotic and hormone-free. There's a bit of a language barrier when I talk with the butchers so have been unable to find out where they source their chicken, beef, etc. Their prices are fantastic and the meat always looks fresh and there's a lot of turnover. Coupled with the fact that they have so many amazing veggies, I'd love to make the store a weekly shopping staple if their meat is antibiotic and hormone free.
Also, where does everyone else get their meat, if buying half a cow isn't an option? i.e. New Seasons, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, etc. Am trying to do this on a budget so have been researching options.

I don't know about the Asian market sources except what I see on the package at Uwajimaya. I think I remember seeing grass fed there.
I haven't purchased a share myself as I don't currently have the space. I mostly buy my grass fed beef from New Seasons and Flying Fish Seafood Co. I also get seafood and pastured pork from Flying Fish. There are some co-ops around too that might work for you. Trader Joes grass fed beef is not local and is over-priced compared to what you can find locally. I got some bad grass fed beef at Whole Foods so I won't try it again. You can find it at farmer's markets. Kookoolan Farm pastured chicken is available at New Seasons and various places (check their website).
