Sanagan’s Meat Locker is a full-service butcher shop that specializes in quality meats, poultry, and foodstuffs sourced exclusively from Ontario family farms. Attentive, educated, and customized service are all part of our mission to become your favourite butcher shop in Toronto. We offer dry aged beef, heritage pork, air chilled chicken, Dorset lamb, game meats, and everything in between. Our chefs produce a full range of delicious take home meal options and prepared foods. Our charcutier follows European traditions and recipes, making us Toronto’s home for terrines, pâté, sausages, and other meaty treats. On top of all this, our service team is one of the friendliest and most respected in the city.

We go to the farms, talk to farmers, and make sure the animals are raised in a responsible manner. What that means to us is no antibiotic-inoculation, no growth hormones, lots of space for each animal to be raised in, and access to nutritious feed. Each animal is raised differently, based on the needs of the species, and each animal is cared for by skilled and passionate farmers who are overseen, inspected, and regulated by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs. We want the best food for our family, so we go to the best farmers with the best practices raising the best animals.

"Sanagans may be the best butcher shop in the city, period."


I love food. I have been working in the food business for twenty-five years, and in that time, I have been fortunate to work with amazing products from all around the world. Truffles from Italy, melons from France, shrimp from Spain; all delicious and unique. However, I truly believe that the best meat in the world is from animals raised right here in Ontario. Our dynamic climate, rich farmland, and acceptance of diverse farming techniques introduced by new Canadians allow us to produce animals that are strong, healthy, and flavourful. Our traditions in the meat industry have won us favour all over the world, and I am proud to be one small link in that chain.

In 2009, when I opened the shop, I thought it would be a great way of sharing my passion with the public. What I soon found out is that many other people feel the same way I do. Our farmers, our staff, and our customers all share the same values, and I am fortunate to be surrounded by likeminded people. Thanks to everyone who supports us day after day. You are all part of our story now.
