Where to buy organic meat in Playa Del Carmen
Update December 2017: Old Jack has closed. We will update you if they reopen in Playa Del Carmen.
For those that have spent any time in Mexico or Playa Del Carmen for that matter, you might know that meat from the grocery store is not the best quality. The area where we live is not exactly cattle country as well. So there are limited places to get quality meat in Playa Del Carmen. Old Jack Meat Shop is hoping to win over residents and tourist with their organic meat.
Not only is the quality good, it is organic and grass feed meat. This means that is does not contain any hormones or antibiotics. We can personally attest to the good quality Old Jack sells. The prices are also good, so quality does not always have to cost more.
When you visit the store make sure you talk to Vicente the owner (he speaks English and Spanish). He knowns just about everything about meat. He told us great cooking tips, how to tell good meat, why organic is better, and information on the ranch where they farm.
