Butcher in Edmonton?

  • 5

Is there one in the city? I mean a real butcher - not deli meats. I guess a short drive out of the city would be okay too - maybe there is one in a small town nearby?

  1. we frequent Cameron's meats in the Crestwood area, there is another location north side somewhere.

    decent selection of Beef & Bison, free range whole chickens, house made sausage, lamb, specialty items have recently been added such as rabbit, ostrich & kangaroo, deli & fish. Huge selection of frozen items too.

    There products are not certified organic but they claim to be antibiotic & hormone free.

    1. Smokin Irons Farms on 50th street and 112 ave is a real butcher and also has fresh turkeys and lamb for holidays. I have got fresh turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas the last 2 years and they were so great that I would never go back to frozen.

      Note: not open on Sundays.

      1. I found one on 118ave and about 60ths st I think. I was on my way to the Tuesday night farmers market. Stopped in a couple times, service was friendly, product was good. They had a bison sale last year that I picked up a bunch of stuff at.

        1. Not sure if they have closed since I have moved to Vancouver, but Brother's Meats in Capilano/Goldbar (50th Street and 101 Ave in the strip mall next to Xwrecks Pub) is the real deal. I remember walking by when I lived nearby and I could smell the most amazing smell of meat being smoked. They made their own kielbassa and had great steaks also.

          1. these guys are not butchers, but they deliver free range meat..mostly pork and chicken: www.serbenfreerange.com
