Where to find wild boar in Seattle area

SandraV Jan 28, 2007 10:00 AM

Uncooked.. Looking to cook up some wild boar ala Volterra and wondering where in the area to find such a thing. The butcher shop in the Market didn't have any in the case or on their board, though we didn't actually ask if they could get it.

    While you're at exotic meats pick up some of the boar bacon--it's fantastic. waaaay less fatty than regular bacon, very meaty, chewy (in a good way, not in a tough way), with an incredible flavor.

      Wild Boar is a bit misleading. These are really farm raised "feral pigs". They lack the true game flavor of wild meat. You can order it from Don and Joe's at the Pike Place Market. Sometimes, you'll find pork from small farms at the Cap. Hill, Fremont, or U. Dist street markets on Sundays. The flavor of freshly butchered, free range pigs is going to be closer to real wild board than what you ate at Volterrible...give it a try.

        We've moved a digression about wild boar and USDA regulations to the General Topics board at http://www.chowhound.com/topics/365147
