Meat markets are so much more than just a butcher shop where you can purchase fresh cuts of beef, pork and poultry. They are local gathering places, usually family-owned and operated, that are known for offering up delicious hot meals, homemade seasonings, dried sausages and jerkies, as well as a great selection of items to take home and prepare yourself – and the Texas Hill Country is home to some of the best!
If you ever find yourself in close proximity to any of our favorite meat markets listed below, do yourself a favor and stop in.
Granzin’s Meat Market
1644 McQueeney Road
New Braunfels, Texas 78130
Granzin’s Meat Market has been supplying their customers with the freshest high-quality meat since 1981. They slaughter their own cattle and hogs and their hamburger is ground continually throughout the day, unlike the meat found in a chain grocery store. In addition to offering hickory smoked holiday hams and smoked turkeys, Granzin’s Meat Market invites you to order their famous dry sausages, jerky and beef sticks online.
342 N. Main Street
Boerne, Texas 78006
Since 1950, Klein Smokehaus has been serving delectable oak-smoked meats, hand-cut steaks and chops, exotic game and bacon in traditional German style. If your skills lack when it comes to backyard BBQs, or you are craving a juicy brisket sandwich, let Klein Smokehaus do the work for you. Their extensive menu will not disappoint.
Alamo Market & Lockers
509 Front Street
Comfort, Texas 78013
Alamo Market & Lockers, founded in 1947, is known for more than their small-town vintage storefront and a welcoming atmosphere. In addition to tasty smoked sausage that locals rave about, you can buy spices, rubs, pickled goods and more from this family run hotspot. Their carnivorous treats usually sell out quickly, so stop by early for the widest selection.
