Kitsilano Butcher

Can anyone recommend a great butcher in the area? Looking for organic, grass-fed, etc.

Will travel 30 mins or more to get to the best butcher in Van area, if there is one... ?

Many thanks.

Looking for something similar to Cumbrae's in Ontario, if you're familiar with it.

  1. Pete's Meat - 16th and Arbutus.
    They are great!


      all free range grass fed top quality i go there when I can't make it to the farmers market. they even have lard form pasture raise pork so can make my special pie crust again!

      PS try the hunter sausages:)

      1. Harkness & Co at Fraser & Broadway. Everything is from local, ethical sources and butchered in-house. They always have a terrific variety of sausages and the house-cured pancetta is delicious.

          This sounds most like what I'm looking for...

            The Honest Butcher is now the West Broadway Meat Co. The service is excellent and the product is great. I'm so glad they've moved into the neighbourhood.

          2. lol, 5 different reco's so far - is there no consensus?

              in my experience, people who choose a butcher over a supermarket will try to find a local/neighbourhood business first.
