[Dallas] Where can I buy lamb?

So after watching Pepin's cooking DVD, my boyfriend and I want to get a bone-in leg of lamb to play around with. We visited the butcher shop on Oak Lawn and they have boneless leg of lamb and it was kind of pricey (9.99/lb). They have boneless and partially bone-in (I think 6.99/lb) at Whole Foods. They don't have it at Costco, but will ship a leg of lamb to you. The one is fancy no-hormone, free-range, vegetarian lamb so of course it was expensive. Any idea where else can I find good lamb in Dallas? I'm probably going to try central market next. It's been on the top of my list of place to look but just haven't had a chance to stop by yet.

The other pertinent lamb question (we like lamb a lot): I've been looking for lamb meat with skin on. It's for a Taiwanese lamb stew that we love and miss. At H-mart, they have good old lamb stew meat which was skinless. I live near Love Field airport so I haven't gone up to Plano to check in the big Asian supermarkets up there yet. Have any of you come across any (preferably cubed) lamb with skin on up in Plano (or anywhere in/near Dallas)? I'm reluctant to drive up there without knowing for sure I'll get something since it's really quite a trek for us to go up.
