Where To Find Venison
I was wondering if anybody knew where one might find venison in the LA area. I can usually only come across sausage, but would love me some filet o' venison over the next few weeks.
Harmony Farms in La Crescenta has venison fillets, stew meat and sausage. They also have elk, alligator, buffalo, etc. All of it is frozen so buy at least one day ahead.
Not sure where you are but ABS Market and Deli in Long Beach (605 E Wardlow Rd 562 989-8109) has a terrific line of exotic meats from alligator to zebra (OK, maybe not zebra) and they're quite reasonably priced. They also make excellent sandwiches with their own hot pepper relish and garlic spread. It looks just like a corner liquor store, but don't be put off...it's a real find.
Surfas in Culver City also has venison, farm-raised and delicious, a bit on the expensive side though.

Quick update: Whole Foods in West LA has venison medallions in a small frozen meats counter, with turkey and duck. Haven't tried them though.
