rendered duck fat source

I need to find a good, reliable and preferably affordable source of rendered duck fat. While I'm willing to travel for it, I would love it if there were a source in San Francisco.
You could try mail order from Joie de Vivre. They carry Grimaud farm duck products, including tubs of duck fat. I haven't ordered duck products from them, but I have had good luck with candied chestnuts and calissons I ordered. And yes, you could travel there if you were desperate (they're in the Central Valley), but that seems a bit far to drive.
have you tried Whole Foods? I know they have duck fat, not sure if it's the kind you're looking for.
