Butchers and Farmer's Markets - Halifax
- finelydiced Sep 2, 2008 01:57 PM
Hey other CH's, I'm hoping you can lend some assistance. I'm heading back to the east coast for a trip in a 2 weeks and was wondering if someone could recommend a good butcher shop. Also, are there any farmer's markets in the Halifax area that operate on a Sunday?
I truly appreciate any assistance!
The Market is on Saturday mornings. It opens at 7am at the Keith's Brewery on Lower Water. There are many butchers selling their wares at the market.
The Frootique looks nice from what they have on their website. I normally vist the St Lawrence Market here in Toronto, but I won't be able to make the market in Halifax as I'll be getting in late on the Saturday. Are there any decent butcher shops downtown? I'm taking food over PEI and I know I'm going to want to bbq a good steak when I arrive.
Pete's is probably your best bet with your time restrictions and they do have a good selection. A co-worker of mine recently told me about Choice Cuts Meats and Deli - I haven't been myself but he was pitching it as an actual butcher (in a city that mostly relies on grocery store meat departments) and one who was trying to source local meat as well.
It's not downtown and I don't know their hours - but you might want to phone or something if you're curious.
