Does anyone know where to get lamb belly aka lamb flaps in the Triangle? I would prefer somewhere on the Raleigh side of things, but any suggestions are welcome.

    Neither is on the Raleigh side of things but I'd imagine that Captain John's or Cozi farm could hook you up if you'd called them

    belly is a real treat. My parents have a sheep ranch and belly is my second favorite cut after shanks.

      Great ideas. Thanks!

      I have tried some of the meat vendors at the Farmers' Market and haven't had luck but I will definitely give some of these a try.

        Brokegradstudent's suggestions seem like the best options.

        Rockandroller1 suggested this resource in a thread about butchers:

        It is more comprehensive than the one I posted earlier.

          I bought a lamb from Capt. John's. I even picked it up at his farm. The meat was excellent and the operation was clean and the animals were well treated.

      Might be some options here (Piedmont region):

      One farm is in Wake county.

        I do not know for sure but I would give this a try. There is an Indian Meat market in Cary off of Chatham Street. I hear they have a lot of lamb. It is a Haluh meat market.

        Now, how to describe how to get there. Take Western Blvd into Cary. It changes to Chatham. Proceed past the S.A.S. soccer park, cross Maynard road at the light. You will see a Circus restaraunt on the right and a strip shopping center on your left. The meat Market is one of the last units upside of the road as you continue. The buildings are brown.

        Good luck.

          Would that be Patel at Chatham Square or is this closer to Udupi?

            I know it is Chatham square but do not know the name. Is Patel right on the corner? If so that is not the one I am thinking of.

              The store I am thing of is not Patel's. I saw it yesterday. Triangle Meat market or Indian Grocery store. It is across the street from that crazy skinny Brick building the put up.

              The Triangle market has brown siding with white letters
