Artisanal Charcuterie in Toronto?

Last month I was in Prince Edward County and picked up some lovely homemade charcuterie -- juniper & elk salami and wild boar sauccisson sec -- which I brought back to Toronto. Is there any place in Toronto where I can buy artisanal charcuterie? Wanted to serve it at a party...Thanks!

  1. I go to Viking Deli and Smokehouse to buy great in-house-smoked salmon and homemade Scandinavian breads (the cardamom almond bread is to die for).

    They also do their own charcuterie. Haven't tried it yet, so I can't vouch for it. If it's anything like their salmon, though, it's worth a try.

      Where is this Viking Deli? I'm drooling over the thought of almond cardamom bread!

    2. I would also bet that if you go to the farmer's market in St. Jacob's (about a 45 minute drive) on Saturdays you'll find some great artisanal sausage, possibly made by Mennonites in the area.

      Actually, the whole area of Kitchener-Waterloo is probably loaded with artisanal producers.

      1. Check out Niagara Specialty Foods. The George Restaurant people publish an interesting food column every week. One of the columns talked about amazing and proper charcutterie done in the traditional Italian method. Have a look at and go to "Foodbuzz" tab and then look at the September 21st article.

        1. Sorry. VIKING DELI & SMOKEHOUSE is on Laird south of Eglinton.
