AJ’s Rocking L Specialty Meats and Gourmet Market Opens in Destin

Destin’s famous AJ’s has opened a brand new venture in the same spot that Joris Specialty Meats previously occupied. 

Located in the Shoreline Village Mall, AJ’s Rocking L Specialty Meats and Gourmet Market opened on November 4th (2022).  Owner Alan Laird said his new venture will be “grass-fed black Angus and Wagyu beef, which are sourced from the family’s farm — Rocking L Ranch and Farm. Based in Florala, Alabama”.  He noted that the cattle graze on pesticide and herbicide-free pastures. It will be the only privately owned specialty meat and gourmet market in Destin. AJ’s is partnering with Maples Market in Andalusia, Alabama which will supply seasonal produce to the store.
