Gold Winner Getaway Farm Butcher Shop, Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market
Silver Winner Getaway Farm Butcher Shop, Hydrostone
Bronze Winner Gateway Meat Market
Getaway, Getaway and Gateway. Are we being Punk’d by this list of winners? The answer is a firm no. The Canning-based Getaway Farm brings people the best darn sustainable meat and grass-fed beef around (these are the butchers responsible for your precious Best Burger at Ace) and lucky for Halifax, they’re accessible from both the south end and the north end. Beef, pork, lamb and chicken of all cuts and flavours is artfully chopped by Getaway’s always helpful experts, but be warned—it’ll be tough to sink your teeth into anything else once you eat from here. Shout outs also to the unrelated bronze winner, Dartmouth’s Gateway Meat Market which has been chopping since 2008.
