Looking for lard, I just ran out of my home-made stuff. Any suggestions? Downtown would be preferable.

      Not the hydrogenated shelf-stable kind, should have specified.

      I hate the Barns but will have to go. This is good, thanks!!

        First time I've heard anyone say that they hate the barns. Curious what you hate about it.

          Many reasons. Everyone there seems above standing in line or waiting for anything. The farmers are great though.

    2. Healthy butcher

      1. uhm, are you referring to plain old no-name lard available in every grocery store, or tenderflake (also available everywhere), or some boutique-y hand-made artisanal lard?

          If it's the latter, you can find it at Wychwood market. There are a couple stalls that sell jars of lard.

        2. Segovia Meats in Kensington on Augusta carries fresh made lard and cooked pork belly slices as well as a good selection of sausges and empanadas
