A Mexican meat market owner is taking it one step further and opening a “mexican” meat market in the Canadian capital.
(Reuters: Matthew Haughey)The Mexican Market, which will open this summer in the former St. Louis Rams practice facility, will offer a wide variety of meats and other items, including a pork chop, pork chops, ground beef and pork ribs.
Its owner, Ricardo Rodriguez, said his aim is to create a “Mexican” market in Canada.
The Meyland, Alabama-based meat market is a partnership between Rodriguez and a Canadian company, Meyford Meat Products.
The two companies have collaborated on many projects including the construction of the stadium in Birmingham and a new ice cream plant in Detroit.
Rodriguez said Meyfords products are currently sold in Mexico and in other countries, but he hopes to expand the Meylfords offerings.
“I’ve always been a meat lover, but it’s my first time going into the meat market, so I’m really excited,” he said.
“We’re very excited to be able to bring the Mexicans meat into Canada.”
Rodrigquez is hoping the Meyls will open in the summer of 2018 and open to the public.
“There’s a lot of Mexican meat in Canada, and a lot in America, so we’re trying to create an alternative to the big guys,” he told CBC News.
“Mexican meat is always great.
We’ve been cooking it for years.
We are going to be doing it in the meat store and it will be really easy to shop.”
The Meylers plan to expand their offerings in Canada over the next few years.
Rodriquez said he hopes his store will attract new customers, especially those who like to eat Mexican food.
“The meat is the most important thing for me,” he added.
“People are going there to eat their Mexican food, and to try different meats.”
