Lamb in the local supermarkets are not cheap here. However, that's
not where i buy mine.
I go to a hallal market. I don't get fancy cuts, they just cut off a
long muscle, then cut it in chunks or grind it, depending on what i
ask for. That's how meat is dealt with in much of the world.
Last time i was there it was $1.99 US/lb, although the price may have
gone up on the past 1/2 year.
It's 3 or 4 times more in the supermarket.
So if you don't need fancy chops or a fancy rack of lamb, i recommend
checking out a hallal market. Obviously this might not work for folks
in more isolated areas, but in cities, there are bound to be hallal
markets, it just may take a little research to find them.
For reference, I'm in the San Francisco Bay area, Northern
California. Also, i'm pretty sure the lamb is fairly local - raised
within a few hours from here.
