Where to buy duck in KC?

  • 9

I have been craving duck like mad since the first of the year and have a few new recipes I'd like to try. Sooooo.....where would I find some duck breasts? Hen House use to carry it - but I haven't seen it there in quite some time. Thanks in advance!

  1. Mushroom - If Hen House carried duck in the past, perhaps they can still get it for you. Perhaps it didn't sell well enough to keep it available all the time. I've always found Hen House to be most accomodating.


    1. Aaaargh...this new format is driving me to drink! Anyway, thanks for the input - I had no idea there were so many choices - both dronish and non-dronish. ;o)

      1. You can get duck at Whole Foods on Metcalf, but it's pricey. it's also a good bird, very meaty.

        1. Mushroom- Have you tried Costco,when I was there in December they had the already baked duck, it came in 3 seperate cryvacked bags each holds a half duck,the price is $14.99,as far as Im concerned it's the best all the work is done for you all you have to do is heat it in the oven for thirty minutes.I am a duck lover and have always done it from scratch, not any more, not having the luxory of a Costco near where I live I will travel the two hundred miles to your city for costco and stock up on all the goodies from them ,got plenty of the ducks ha-haaa,Maple Farm sells them to Costco.Hope you will still find them.

          1. I wondered about the duck at Costco. Is it the one in the deli/cheese section? Good to know that it's tasty.

              yes the duck is in the cheese and Deli dept,and it is very good,plus the price is also a big plus, not to mention the time and mess one saves by doing it from scratch.
              Try it, you'll be hooked.

            2. You can buy fresh duck at the Asian grocery store that is across from the City Market. It is very reasonable and fresh.

                The City Market location is the best -- nice, meaty bird with just about the perfect amount of fat. I've had problems with availability sometimes, but I tend to just hold off cooking one if I can't get one there.

              2. I was at the Price Chopper in Roeland Park today (47th and Roe), and they had capons, duck, and goose next to the turkeys in one of the freezer cases. Also squabs (or some other very small bird). It really is an excellent place for all your non-standard meat needs. Chicken feet anyone?
