Where to get sausages in GTA?

Hi,
I'm looking for a place that sells great tasting sausages ( german, italian, polish etc.. ) in the GTA. Preferably a place with alot of variety. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  1. Go to the St Lawrence Market - Downtown right by Front and Jarvis. The best day to go is on Saturday's...boy that just makes me so homesick. Here I sit in Southwest Florida whcih is sadly lacking a market type place that I was so lucky to grow up with!!!

      There are many stalls at SLM which sell sausages. Any suggestion which particular stall is good? and any sausage in particular I should try?

      hehe.. I wish I was in Florida now.. =P

      1. re: yummyPiggy

        I really don't know which one we buy from but almost all of the meat is fresh and the sausages were homemade. The last time was there (unfortunately) was June of '06. Way too long! I so crave peameal bacon! People here have never even heard of it!

    2. Here's a relatively recent thread about sausages in d.t.Toronto -

      Also, Cumbrae's has some good sausages. And Leslie's Meat & Delli (formerly Kellen's) offers a variet of European style sausages. They're on Leslie St., north of York MIlls, where the old Swiss Chalet used to be.

        I recommend Fresh From the Farm on Donlands. They carry mennonite sausages and they are wonderful. You can buy them fresh or frozen. I believe they are only open Thursday to Saturday and they sell out quickly so I would call beforehand.

          Second that. Here's their website with hours/location and ordering info -

            Hey Jamie, you're good at that....thanks :)

              Thanks, it's not that difficult. What it indicates, sadly, is that I need a life. Spend way too much time on this board.

              Anyway, to keep things relevant, here are some more Place links -

              1. re: JamieK

                Wow! thanks for all the suggestions. I'll check them out! :)

      2. Brandt Meat's factory store in Mississauga(Dundas+Wharton Way) is great for all types of fresh and cured wurst--none fresher. Only open Wed-Sat.

        1. Back to the SLM, my favourite sausage place is in the North building on East wall. The Lemon sausages are delicious and I also like their chorizo and their Italian. Get there early!

          1. re: tartytatin

            Place in that location is called El Gaucho.

            Also for good chorizo (12 kinds) is Segovia Meats on Augusta

            1. re: tartytatin

              I second the lemon sausages. My only problem is that too many people know how bloody great they are, so I have to get there before 9am (from Mississausage) to get a few!!!

              1. re: tartytatin

                Last time I went to El Gaucho sausages, I bought three of about 10 different kinds of sausage, including French Champagne, Italian, Brats, breakfast sausage, etc.
                They were all fabulous. I made them one day when we had people over for wine, cheese and munchies and I labelled them all and sliced them in 1 cm slices and put toothpicks in them. I got raving reviews from everyone and it was a great way to try a lot of different flavours. I served with crusty bread slices and cheese.

              2. Somewhat of an aside:
                Does anyone know if Whole Foods carries high-quality sausages? Some of the locations in Pennsylvania have the most amazing store-made sausages.

                  i was going to recommend whole foods. when i was living in NYC i would always buy sausages from their meat counter that were delicious AND not that expensive. I'd assume that the Hazelton location has them but you never know in this crazy city!
