ORIGINALLY POSTED JAN. 20, 2016
Oswego will soon be home to a locally owned market that sells high quality fresh meat.
Sages Meat Market, which is moving from Morris, will open in the former location of Genoa Pizza in the Oswego Plaza shopping center at Route 71 and Plainfield Road. Village trustees Tuesday night unanimously approved a $55,000 low interest loan from the village’s revolving loan fund to the owners, Tom and Ann Dobbels.
The Dobbels said they hope to open the market by Easter, but sometime in April may be a more realistic goal, Tom Dobbels said.
“We have a very loyal Yorkville/Oswego following,” he said. “We have continued to hear how the community of Oswego has desired a local meat market for many years. We love our Morris customers and our experience in that wonderful community, but look forward to being closer to home and sharing our passion, expertise and delicious products with Oswego.”
Sages Meat Market first opened in Morris in 2003, and the Dobbels became partners in the business in 2005 and bought out their partners in 2007. They are residents of Yorkville.
In addition to high quality fresh beef, pork, and chicken, Sages will also sell fish, lamb, veal and exotic meats like bison, elk and venison. The shop also will carry Boar’s Head meats and cheeses and specialty items like stuffed and marinated chicken breast and pork chops, stuffed gourmet burgers and a variety of brats and sausages.
Tom Dobbels said the market will also sell local gourmet grocery products like sauces, spices and honey along with Yaeger Farm's Amish products that include jams, pickles, mushrooms, beets and salsas.
According to village documents, the Dobbels plan to use the $55,000 in revolving loan funding to help complete the build out of the inside of the location, which will also include a kitchen.
Other recipients of revolving loan funds from the village include Oswego Cyclery, which last year borrowed $150,000 for the $750,000 rehab of the former Fire Barn on Main Street. Firehouse Pizza borrowed $130,000 to help fund the build out of its location.
Village Administrator Dan DiSanto told trustees Tuesday night that all borrowers through the program are current on their payments.
