Butchers in Edmonton

In last November's class, Shawna was interested in the disappearing case of the local butcher. (Sounds like a murder mystery in the making.)

I was at NAIT last week for a special event, and I happened to stumble upon the NAIT Retail Meatcutting Store! Eureka. Since it's a teaching institution, they love a challenge. They have ready to go meat products in the cooler section, but can accommodate special requests.

NAIT's retail meatcutting store is located in the "Common Market" cafeteria area in the South Lobby. It's open mid-September to mid-December and again mid-January to mid-April (to coincide with the school terms) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The business card I grabbed didn't include a direct phone number to the meatcutting store, but it does list NAIT's school of hospitality general phone number: 780-471-8678.
