Wild Fork Meat & Seafood Market Opening Two San Diego Locations

July 8, 2024

San Diego will soon get two locations of Wild Fork Foods, a specialty meat and seafood store with an inventory that includes an array of exotic meats like alligator, ostrich and kangaroo.

Wild Fork Foods was founded in 2017 by JBS USA Holdings, Inc., a meat processing company and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Brazilian multinational JBS S.A., the largest meat packer in the world (JBS allegedly slaughters over 50 thousand cattle per day). Wild Fork Foods is the latest expansion of the JBS empire, and the first branch that is focused on selling directly to customers. There are currently around 40 Wild Fork stores around the United States. 

In addition to a location opening in a new building being built in the space that last housed V-Outlet discount store on Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach, Wild Fork Foods is opening a branch in Encinitas Ranch Town Center in San Diego's North County. The modern-day meat and seafood market will sell over 700 products, including 450+ meat & seafood items, ranging from everyday grocery staples to rare finds like premium Wagyu and exotic meats. There will also be a range of appetizers, sides, seasonings, fruits, veggies, breads, pre-seasoned meats, and desserts. Customers will be able to order online for convenient in-store pickup or local delivery. 

Wild Fork Foods Store is expected to open on July 23 at 1560-A Leucadia Boulevard in Encinitas. The second branch is expected to open by year's end  at 1701 Garnet Avenue in San Diego's Pacific Beach. For more information, visit wildforkfoods.com.
