Local Pig and the City Market make a dandy match.

The Local Pig butcher shop and Pigwich, its sister restaurant, deal in sustainably raised animals, which are a fine fit with the city’s largest weekly farmers market.

“Sustainable agriculture is the backbone of what we do,” says Alex Pope, owner and executive chef. “We source 100% of our proteins from small family farms right around here.”

See the rest of the story on this week’s installment of “The Block.”

“The Block” takes viewers on a journey through Kansas City’s streets to get a sense of the people and cuisine – the fabric of KC’s neighborhoods. But this isn’t just a food show. There’s history, culture and unknown facts about Kansas City. You’ll go inside kitchens, see how food and drinks are made, and peek into the lives of everyday Kansas Citians working in the service industry.
