Highlands Farm Lamb Special (Toronto Area Eggers)

TexanOfTheNorthTexanOfTheNorth Posts: 2,750
Highlands Farm is selling 1/2 and whole fresh Ontario spring lamb for 5.99/lb. I think I'll head by there on my way home and pick some up. Any of you other Toronto egger's ever bought lamb there?

Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    John, the Dufferin and Rutherford locations are rebranded as Coppa's fresh market, I heard it was due to some sort of 'family split up'. The Coppa's flyer I'm looking at says $6.99/lb.
    Just saw the news about a fire in Aurora, did you shut down your egg properly last night? ;)

    Mrs. TOTN just sent me a message about the Aurora fire... one of the old churches (not sure which one). Nothing to do with my egg.  :D

    I bought some at the Mississauga location a few weeks ago. It was $4.99. I was making lamb sausage and I happened to be in Vaughn a couple of days later so I stopped in there and it was $14.99. The lamb was excellent. I heard Metro has it for $3.99

    Metro's $3.99 lamb leg is NZ, also has prime rib $4.99.

    Gary, I just called Coppa and, you're correct, 1/2 or whole Ontario spring lamb is 6.99/lb. Still seems like a good price to me. Highland Farms is 5.99/lb for the same thing but they're too far out of my way.

    LS, the Matheson/Hurontario store near you is 5.99

    TOTN, show them their rival sibling's flyer and see if they'll match, you never know ...

    I spoke directly with the butcher counter and told them that the Highland Farms price was $1 less/lb. Did not seem to bother them. I do plan on asking again at the store.

    Wish I had bought more.
    Gary, I am pretty sure the $4.99 was a mislabeling thing.

    TOTN, take a printout, try a well dressed manager, last week I noticed several of them walking/checking around due to the restructuring.  Don't waste your time with the butcher or cashier.

    Bought a whole lamb, 6.99/lb, total of $185. 2 legs, 2 shoulders and lots of chops. The egg is lighting and we'll be having lamb chops for dinner.

    Wow, I thought you were talking about leg. That is a great deal for Ontario lamb.

    As @Cannugghead noted above, the Dufferin location is now called Coppas (although the sign on the store and everything I was inside still says Highland Farms). I took the Highland Farms flyer in that advertised 5.99/lb but they would not let me have the lamb for that price; and in all fairness, the flyer did specify the Scarborough and Missisauga Highland Farm locations. I still though that 6.99/lb was a great price. Their prices for leg of lamb where 13.99/lb, shoulder 8.99/lb and rack of lamb 19.99/lb.

    John, look real good! You're right about the flyer is for the other two locations only, just thought they may match it as a customer goodwill gesture. In fact, I think the 'split' happened a while back because whenever I googled on HF flyer online it specifies just those two locations, although the same sales still applied at Duff. and Ruth. stores. I guess they're finally making the split officially and Coppa's now has its own flyers.
