Where to buy Goat Shanks in the downtown core?

I was thinking of making a goat tangine this weekend. Does anyone know where I can buy goat shanks in the d/t core?

  1. I don't know that Kensington Market qualifies as 'downtown core', but you might try Sanagan's Meat Locker - they had goat when I was there a little while ago. Call ahead though.

      Thanks dsx.

      When you live in Burlington the d/t core takes up a HUGE swath. Since I can easily walk to Kensington market from the office I know what I'll be doing tomorrow.

    2. The suggestion of Sanagan's is a good one, probably also one of the butchers at the St. Lawrence Market. But be prepared to pre-order them whomever you wind up dealing with, even places that regularly carry goat meat won't necessarily have shanks as a stock item as they usually get broken down into stew meat in the usual butchering.

        Sanagan's didn't have goat but they directed me to Kensington Meats where there was plenty of goat on hand. I was advised by the butcher to buy legs and she trimmed them into large 'shank-like' cuts.

        We had the goat tagine last night and it was brilliant!

        Thanks for the advise - I doubt I would have thought to pop into Kensignton had you not mentioned it.
