Take a stroll through Greenwood Village and you might just spot a pig being butchered in the window of Stock in Trade, Toronto’s newest “haute” meat shop (and further evidence of the Danforth’s ongoing culinary revitalization). The shop, which opened just over a month ago, specializes in hormone- and GMO-free proteins sourced from local farms, plus homemade sausages, marinades and ready-made dinners, like whole roasted chickens and mac ‘n’ cheese. Most enticing, though, are the sandwiches: soft buns piled with thick-sliced pastrami and caramelized onions, or fried sweetbreads with pickled veggies. There are even options for vegetarians, like a crunchy tofu patty topped with slaw and hot-pepper sauce.
