I was asked to take some photos of this butcher shop, and was pleased to discover a family. The Friendly Butcher (3269 Yonge St) is the neighbourhood local, featuring local, quality meats. It’s the place you go to feel welcomed, well-fed and taken care of. There is so much care here, it might woo a vegetarian to the meat-eating world. OK, maybe not. But you will feel like you are part of something positive, when you go.
