Beef Jerky is an addiction that many people share. Fortunately, there are many cattle ranchers in Alberta, and as such, the Medicine Hat area has no shortage of fresh jerky that is vacuum sealed.

Taylor and I both share this addiction, so a few months ago we took up the task of finding out the best places to get jerky around Medicine Hat and compiled the following list:

Premium Sausage is a locally owned meat store located in Seven Persons, Alberta (about 15 minutes out of Medicine Hat on Highway #3). They have both beef jerky and pork jerky, although the beef is a little stringy, but the pork is exceptional. Apart from jerky, they have a wide selection of meats, baked goods, and the business functions as a General Store of sorts for the Seven Persons community and surround. My previous post on the Premium Sausage store can be viewed here.

Sobeys is a grocery store in town and has some of the best beef jerky in town. They stock three flavours: Regular, Peppered and Teriyaki, all of which are very good.

Mike’s Meats is a locally owned meat store located on Foundry Street in Medicine Hat. Their beef jerky is top notch and I have been back there numerous times. Apart from jerky, they are much like any other meat store, carrying an assortment of meat products.

Reg’s Homestyle Meats & Deli Ltd is a locally owned store located along Sierra Drive SW in the Southridge area of Medicine Hat. They have beef jerky, although it is pre-packaged, and sometimes deer jerky. Along with this, they have a lot of frozen meat-goods, ice creams, drinks, and a deli. Reg’s is a regular stop for me and Taylor, not for the jerky, but because their deli makes the best sandwiches ever.

Medicine Hat Farmer’s Market is, as title says, a market for farmers. They come and sell their wares, a lot of which includes jerky and other meat. Most of the attending farmers who raise cattle have their own style of processing jerky that vary in type (Angus and Deer being notable) and flavour. The Farmers Market is without a doubt the place to go for the biggest selection of jerky in town. Vaughn did a post on the market in the Spring and can be viewed here.


Medicine Hat Meat Traders is a local business in Medicine Hat that processes and sells natural meat. Their “Dang Good Jerky” is just as it says, dang good! They have different kinds of jerky and is by far one of the best in town.

Premium Sausage is a meat store that is located in Seven Persons, Alberta, and was started by Ralph and Elaine Erb in 1990, who began selling their homemade sausage at the request of their friends. Ever since, business has boomed and the store now offers a great selection of meat products and operates somewhat as a general store, offering many canned goods, as well as some baking.

The store can be easily identified just off the highway in Seven Persons by the architecture of the building, which is in the likeness of a grain elevator. Upon entering, the aroma of fresh meats fills your lungs – a smell most people relish; however, I am sure I would, as most people would, get sick of the smell if they were surrounded by it for too long. Regardless, their meat selection is huge, fresh, and affordable. What is more, Medicine Hat residents can have their orders delivered free of charge if they exceed $50 in cost.

Despite being about 20 minutes south of Medicine Hat and about the same distance from Bow Island, the store seems to enjoy a great amount of business.

Premium Sausage can be located off Highway #3 in Seven Persons, Alberta.
Store Hours: Monday to Friday: 8:30AM – 6:00PM, Saturday: 8:30AM to 5:30AM, Sunday: Closed.
