Seeking Porketta ASAP

i am looking for a place to buy a whole porketta. I recall in the past a place on college but i totally forgot the name/exact location.
Please let me know of any places, anywhere in the city, where i can get my hands on a whole porketta
re: Edith S
The best porcetta's in the city is Tonino's Meat on Rogers Road near Keele.
It is available only on Friday. They make between 20 -30 porcetta's a week for many banquet halls.
Vincentina's is not a true porcetta. They make up the roast with chunky minced pork and then wrap it in skin and then roasted. Tonino's is the whole pig deboned, seasoned and roasted. yum yum
I also agree that Tonino's Meats on Rogers Rd makes great porcetta as well as good italian pork and liver sausages for that matter. However I disagree with your mention that the Vincentina roasts contain minced pork. I have too many to mention and have never had one with minced pork in it.
