duck fat in seattle?

anyone know a place that sells duck fat? (or a restaurant that might be open to selling some?) i keep bacon fat onhand--easy enough--but duck's a harder fix to meet since i don't cook it often. thanks.

    Uwajimaya has it pretty consistently in their freezer case in quantities enough for confit. If you only need a small amount, Delaurenti and Metropolitan Market are pretty reliable for small portions -- I forget the manufacturer -- but look in the dried soup section for small packages of Glace de Canard, Demiglace, etc. Usually they have the same manufacturer's duck fat as well.

      I saw small tubs (8oz?) frozen at Central Market (Shoreline).

        Central Market also sells it at their Mill Creek location.

        I bought some at Uwajimaya recently for I think $6 a pound, seemed like a good price. (Only a dollar or two above what we pay our supplier at the restaurant.)

        The tubs available elsewhere are probably Grimaud Farms.

        joe and don's meats in the pike place market generally has pints of rendered duck fat at about 1/3 the price of the small containers available around the corner at dilaurenti's - however, to the deli's credit, one may find goose fat there at prices approximating gold...

          University Seafood and Poultry in the university district has duck fat.
