Anyone know of a place where I can get a small amount of haggis (10 portions or so) to try out for Robbie Burns Day?

      Following is an excerpt from another website.
      I suggest if Gordon's Fine Meats is sponsoring a haggis hurling, they probably make and sell it too!
      Easy to find- just google"haggis in Calgary"

      Haggis hurling in Calgary Alberta!

      Gordon Sinclair, owner of Gordon's Fine Meats, once again honours Scotland's national bard, Robbie Burns, with his annual haggis toss across the mighty Bow River.
      The toss is set for this Sunday, the 23rd, at 12:30pm.

          The Best place I have found is Macewans Meats (Scottish Butcher) on Elbow drive. You can either buy a small haggis or haggis rounds (little pucks) that you pan fry in a little oil to have with breakfreast...

            I had one from Bon Ton Meats upon 16th Ave NW. It was excellent - don't forget your neeps & tatties!!!

            Someone told me about Macewans on the weekend - it sounds great - I haven't eaten black pudding in years!!

              If you go to MacEwans, just remember to bring cash.

                Hey there, there is a great meat market on 16th ave NW on the right hand side just before you hit shaganappi, its in a strip mall near the keg, wendys and scotiabank....its called Bon Ton Meats. I noticed just a few hours ago when I was there that they have a huge special on for Robbie Burns day. Hope that helps, good luck!

                  It's true Bon Ton usually has Haggis and it is good. Nice guys. Oh and goleafsgo, if you are into Black pudding and go to McEwens also check out the white pudding. I actually prefer the black pudding at the Better Butcher but he doesn't carry the white.
