Can anyone recommend a butcher who makes an excellent chorizo or spanish style sausage?

      Doesn't Segovia do Mexican style chorizo?

          Segovia do almost a dozen styles of chorizo, based on the cuisines of various Latin American, Mexican, and South American countries. I don't think they specifically do a Spanish, but what they do is excellent.

          For actual imported Spanish, you can get them at Pimenton on Mt. Pleasant.

      The Sausage King...south side St Lawrence Market, or Gaucho's in the north market on Satudays only.

        Are you referring to the fresh sausage or the dried one? Schleffler's at the SLM carries the dried ones. I think they are imported from Spain.

              Then I think Segovia in Kensington is your place.

                Definitely Segovia. Each type of their sausages are excellent.

            Would love to find a local producer that makes the sausages with Pimenton (Spanish Paprika) instead of chili or another pepper. The Imported Spanish ones are really expensive (~$12 each)
