Where to buy Alberta lamb in Edmonton?

My local Safeway (Meadowlark) carries grain-fed lamb from Innisfail, but they don't always have the cuts or quantities I'm looking for. Where else in the city is a good place to find Alberta lamb?
I've always got my Alberta lamb at Hajar's Halal Meats. Definitely worth a drive.

Strathcona Farmers Market - I'm mostly buying from Four Whistle Farms lately, but also sometimes from Trowlesworthy. Sunworks is more expensive, haven't tried it from there.
Thought I would combine these into one post, as I have some time. Hope no one minds. It looks like we actually have some solid options.

Butchers Corner in Beaumont had some frozen racks in, they might be able to special order if you ask...Awesome butchers if you get a chance to stop there. They have there own smoker so the beef jerky is great and they regularily have bison and elk.
Four Whistle Farms..definitely...some of the finest lamb I have ever had anywhere in the world...and the Welsh lamb I was brought up on was quite possibly the world's best, and
this certainly equals it...quantities may be an issue though, but I am sure they will help you
But sorry, grainfed lamb!!!! I have never heard of lamb eating anything but grass
It may be sort of ok for Beef, but trust me, Sheep eat grass, nothing else!!
Why is Alberta known for it's beef...it is it's lamb that it should really be proud of.
Lots of grainfed lamb around in the world if you look for it, produces a more mild flavor(dependant on where its from.... opinions differ on this), though it is higher in fat and lower in % protein then grass-fed. Most people tend to prefer grass-fed, but there are some very nice grain-fed lamb producers that I personally prefer.
