food shopping mission again

itryalot Nov 6, 2011 02:51 PM

Coming down to Toronto for another food shopping experience:
I don't want to preorder, but am looking for:
half a lamb,
half a goat or pces (Ontario)
Some italian veggies and imported greek and italian fish for my great aunt and great uncle

There used to be a good place on St. Clair in what used to be, Little Italy, but can't remember the name.
What fresh fall veggies are out there? I don't want to go to St. Lawrence Market for once if I don't need to.

St. Lawrence Market
92 Front St E, Toronto, ON M5E, CA

    Go to Diana's seafood - all kinds of fish from everywhere
    Brickworks farmers market - squash, root vegetables, beets, etc

    lots of West Indian stores will have goat but usually frozen. Pre-ordering will save you time and guarantee you get what you want. Any reason for not pre-ordering?

      I like to see it when I buy it. Sometimes the way it's cut is not the way we want. I've heard about Diana's. Do they have a better selection than Seacore or San Antonio fish market?

        If you go to St Clair West you could hit the farmer's market at Wychwood Barns.

          Try Kostas Meat Market at the Southwest Corner of Warden/Ellesmere for the goat and lamb - lots of supply for lamb there.
