Doug Brant was the third generation of his family to operate the market
On January 18, 2018, Brant's announced that they would be closing permanently do to new state regulations. They had no exact closing date, but said that "as soon as our products are gone we will be closed." There was an overwhelming response and they sold out the next day. Later in the year, the market was sold to Adam & Ashley Comeau, who reopened June 22. We have not yet had an opportunity to revisit the market.
Brant's Meat Market features fine fresh meats as well as dry cured bacon, beef jerky, homemade Czech bologna, and wonderful smoked link sausages. The Czechoslovakian ring bologna is a big treat with everyone that tries it, and I love the smoked sausage on pizza. Brant's market has been operating since 1922, with over 75 years by the same family.
Doug Brant always finds time to talk about the community of Lucas and recommend places to visit in central Kansas. He doesn't say so, but I suspect he is one of the people that has provided the energy that keeps propelling Lucas forward. Be sure to ask Doug about the history of Brant's Meat Market, and look at the old family pictures and letters on the wall. In 2014, Doug was joined by his daughter, Stephanie Svanty, the 4th generation of the family to operate the market.
Brant's Meat Market is the largest retail distributor of Luther's Beef Jerky. Brant's ships beef jerky, and prepares gift boxes of meats and cheeses for pickup. Call for details.
