Where to Buy Duck Breast

Where can I buy duck breast in a store? I want to buy some good duck breast because my husband loves duck. I know you can buy it on-line but I'd prefer to get it fresh somewhere in the peninsula or south bay.

  1. Draeger's. You might want to call first, this time of year it might be special-order.

    1. The meat counter at the Portola Drive Mollie Stone's (formerly Tower Market) sometimes has it. But usually I order ducks and duck parts from Sonoma Poultry Co.

      and they deliver; there's a shipping charge, so I order a bunch, like 16 leg-thighs, 5 lbs. of duck fat (for confit), a couple of pounds of gizzards for stock etc. Jim Reichert is a nice guy and there's something very appealing about answering the doorbell to find the Duck Truck (as I now think of it) has arrived.

      1. I've been able to get them at the Andronico's on Irving by Funston.

        1. Whole Foods, the one on the corner of Franklin & California.
