Here at St. Marcus Fine Foods, we’re all about food.

With over three decades of experience in butchery under our belt, we think we’ve earned our stripes when it comes to preparing meat. Not to mention our history with curing and crafting top quality Biltong, Droëwors, and Stokkies. We’ve taken the same level of care we apply to our own products, to find recipes that will compliment them. After all, food should be a celebration and how better than to marry flavours together in glorious harmony.
