Hamels Meat Market, located in the town of Bonnyville, Alberta.
Hamels Meat Market was established in Bonnyville, Alberta in the fall of 1929 by Josephat Hamel. Pépère Joe had a built in labor force… his five sons. Three sons would move on, leaving the two younger sons Reginald and Joffre in the business.
Reginald and Joffre bought the Butcher shop from their founding father in the year 1965. It was a short few months later that Joffre lost his brother Reginald in a drowning accident. Alone Joffre forged ahead. He and his wife Janis would operate the Meat Market to this very day.
This Butcher shop has had a long lifespan. From the year 1929 to the present day… A contribution of over 90 years strong. With our truly productive staff, we hope to maintain the Butcher shop for many years to come, and are forever grateful for the amazing support of our fantastic longtime, new & future customers.
