Merguez Sausages

Does anyone know where I can buy merguez sausages in or around Toronto? I have not been able to find any so far. I have tried all the "sausage merchants" in St-Lawrence Market and none have them. I also asked at Boujadi where they get theirs...the answer...from Montreal.

  1. you might be out of luck. whenever we go to montreal we stack up on merguez because we haven't been able to find them here - but we have not yet checked out the lawrence east area.

    1. Have you tried Atelier Thuet?

      1. I recall Olliffe 1097 Yonge St. at Summerhill (416-928-0296) or Bloor Meat Market at 2283 Bloor St. W at Runnymede (416-767-2105) having merguez sausages. Olliffe is signficantly more expensive than your average butcher but also has an interesting variety of sausages. Bloor Meat Market has a more standard selection of sausages for a reasonable price. Calling ahead might not be a bad idea.

        1. Here's a link to an earlier thread on the subject. For the record, I've heard good things from other sources about the merguez at La Fromagerie, which is mentioned in the thread, although I've never tried them myself.
          Good luck; let us know where you find them and how they rate.

          1. I believe the Healthy Butcher carries merguez sausages. I haven't tried them personally, but I have had bought several other types of sausage there and have never been disappointed.

              I buy good ones from the North St. Lawrence Market on Saturday mornings. The specific vendor I'm talking about it on the east wall of the building, closer to the south end.

                Yes, I've bought these as well, they are good. But go early, they tend to run out.
