Goat Meat

Greetings all,

Would really appreciate if someone could advise me where Goat meat can be bought in and around Zürich.

I understand that if Goat meat is eaten, in Ticino for example, it is normally the kid, baby goat.

I need Goat meat to cook a Curry, so need an older goat.

Any ideas please....



Mods, I did a search and I couldn't find anything

Re: Goat Meat

Would it be worth trying suppliers of Halal meat?

Re: Goat Meat

You also can get it directly at farmers if you give them a call beforehand. Here are two address lists:

KAG Open Land
(post codes can be changed in the dropdown-menu)
Culinarium (it didn't always display all results for the goat products when I navigated the website but if you have the time, give it a closer look)

The products you're searching are "Ziegenfleisch" (or "Geissenfleisch") = goat meat and "Gitzi"/"Gitzifleisch" = young goat meat.

Re: Goat Meat

Metzgerei Seefeld in Zurich Seefeld usually has goat meat. Best to call ahead. Ask for Marco, he speaks enough English They also have a store in Uster.

The Tuesday markets at Bürkliplatz and Helvetiaplatz in Zurich (thanks, Jack) also sell goat meat

Re: Goat Meat

Thanks everyone. You have all been so helpful. I looked around for quite a while but found nothing!

Can't wait to buy some and cook a nice fiery Goat Curry !

Hey Uncle Max, just went to the store in Uster. Unfortunately don't have any goat meat. He told me to come back in Easter ... hehehe ...

I'll check out the market at Bürkliptz next Tuesday. Thanks again.

Ah shame, but you did call first, right?

As goat is not widely eaten here, it's unusual for butchers to have it in all the time, hence call and order some. If Bürkliplatz is no use, try Helvetiaplatz on Tuesdays / Fridays or as Jack mentions, Oerlikon on Saturdays.

Don't forget the milk as a three day marinade...

Re: Goat Meat

I dont rem the name of this turkish/lebanese store, but I can tell you how to reach there.. My frnd generally buys from there & makes some abso-bloody-lutely delicious Indian (Mutton) curry

Take the right from Limmatplatz towards Langstrasse, when you reach Denner on your left, take the right turn. Keep left & the first turkish/lebanese store you spot (with vegetables on display outside) is your store.

Thanks Hi2All. May I ask for a clarification?

- Take right from Limmatplatz towards Langstrassse, do you mean actually go to Langstrasse?
- Is the Denner on Langstrasse?
- When I reach the Denner on the left, do I take the opposite road on the right?

Sorry, I'm terrible at directions! Thanks again.

Thanks, but it's raining up here! I'm using the bony bits tonight for curry, I'll try a kebab on the BBQ at the weekend (if it does stop raining) and then slow roast the legs next week.

Re: Goat Meat

What does goat taste like... also is it similar to mutton in texture?
