meat-markets-in-San-AntonioThanks to concerns about the health of both the environment and the population, the emphasis today is on fresh, local, sustainable ingredients in food preparation. Obtaining your food as close to the source as possible eliminates excessive handling and treatment with preservatives and other chemicals.

Top-quality meat is an important source of protein, a major component of every cell in your body including hair, bones, muscles and skin. Shopping at an old-school meat market instead of a supermarket offers the best selection along with a level of customer service that's not found in many stores today.
