Where to find weisswurst (white sausage) in TO?

I'm looking for a restaurant or butcher in the GTA where I can find authentic weisswurst? Does anyone have any leads? I'm dying to try it...

  1. Whitehouse Meats in the SLM sells a pretty good version. Not sure how authentic it is, but it tastes good.

        I second this. I buy these for Sunday breakfast every week. As far as authenticity goes, it's not completely authentic as authentic weisswurst is made from veal, and traditionally is consumed right away after being made as it spoils quickly.

          what are the whitehouse ones made of, if not veal? pork? poultry?

          i grew up eating weisswurst from Denninger's in Hamilton (and am a HUGE fan), but no longer eat them b/c i don't usually eat veal. if there's a good quality alternative out there, i'd love to know!

      2. St. Lawrence Market, both North and South markets.

        1. Hi,
          IMHO Denningers in Oakville sells very good ones.

          1. Brandt Meats in Mississauga is wurst heaven. Factory-fresh weisswurst only travel about 100ft from plant to counter.

              Elmwood Meat Market in Port Credit (Mississauga) carries Brandt weisswurst in a package of four.

              Elmwood Meat Market
              170 Lakeshore Rd E, Mississauga, ON L5G, CA

            2. Try Vienna Fine Foods on Birchmount Rd.
