fresh duck eggs?
does anybody know where i could find fresh duck eggs in los angeles? i tried china town, but, alas, because of my ignorance i bought baby duck eggs--which was, to say the least, unexpected. thanks in advance.
I have read, (both here on CH and on the web) that the South Pasadena Farmers Market has a vendor that sells them. If you check it out we hope you will let the board know if that's true and who has them for sale. (Have you thought about making a McArthur Park lake late night rubber boat run out to the island? ;-D)
South Pasadena Farmers' Market
Meridian Ave. at Mission St.
near Orange Grove
Thursdays, 4-7 p.m.
(Rain or shine)
For Scotty: duck eggs yolks taste a little richer to me than chicken eggs, and are larger in size. Not a night and day difference, but noticeable. Supposedly, they make a more substantial difference in baking, but I haven't tested that.
Balut Pateros has plain duck eggs and balut, the fertilized kind w/ the embyro inside.
9333 E. Valley Blvd
edit: Forgot to mention that Balut Pateros is also a wholesaler. If they're too far from you, you might ask if they have a more local retail account.
I'm pretty sure I've seen duck eggs at Surfas in Culver City...but I'm not positive...I know they have quail eggs....just can't remember whether they had both...
Give them a ring
