Grass Fed Meat in Seoul, Korea

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a grocery store that store that sells grass fed, natural meats and organic vegetables in Seoul, Korea. I recently moved to Seoul so I really appreciate your help or advice.

I've been here for 10 months (paleo for the last 4) and it really isn't too much of a problem. Meat is expensive but seafood and fresh produce is really inexpensive!

Costco and Homeplus both stock a number of different beef cuts from Australian cattle. I'm not sure whether they are grass-fed though.

Local markets (the ones where there's individual sellers) is a good place.

I'd also try Costco in Seoul and see if they carry ground bison.

Meat in South Korea is very expensive. Grass-fed probably costs like a fortune. I doubt it will be very popular. But who knows. Maybe if you explore some local markets?

GRASS FED FROM AUSTRALIA IS AVAILABLE AT HIGH STREET MARKET LOCATED IN ITAEWON

WWW.HIGHSTREET.CO.KR

PRICES ARE COMPETITIVE AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT GRASS FED IS CHEAPER THAN GRAIN FED AS GRAIN FED FARMS PAY PREMIUM FOR GRAINS WHEREAS GRASS FED COWS JUST EAT GRASS

Consider buying conventional meat, that will save you money and not contribute any less to your health, as grass fed meat has not been proven to be any healthier than conventional meat.

Don't sweat it. The meat and animal product you find in Korea may not be certified 'grass fed' unless you find it in a store that caters to the organic crowd, but they're not the CAFO crap that you find in the US either. A good store there (associated with Whole Foods) is "Orga Whole Foods". I don't know the exact location though.

Check out if they have any imported meat from New Zealand or Australia. Some brands actually place a sticker on them that they are grass-fed.
