Birmingham - duck breasts?

Where would I go about buying these?
I'm thinking about grilling up some kabobs Saturday, possibly with some cubed duck breast, fresh shrimp from the Super Oriental Market (they looked good the last time I was there), some cherry peppers (if I can find them), yellow onions, various other mild peppers, cherry tomatoes, maybe some good sausage. Figure over a rice, maybe just something simple like safron rice. Love to do a light risotto but it's a bit much in the heat. Maybe serve with a cold dish too. Possibly accompanied by sangria (maybe a white wine sangria) and definitely cold beers. Not sure the whole menu yet.
I just called a few places based on these two responses. TRIA has duck breast at $10.99/lb while V. Richard's has them for $14.99/lb. Fresh Market has t2 for $12.99/lb.Whole Foods only has frozen. Thanks for the help Hounds, it looks like I might finally check out TRIA. Anything not to miss there?
Where is Sysco? This is just the distributor with a cash and carry policy for less than a case purchases?
In additional to mychef's suggestions, try Fresh Market on Hiway 280 or Mr. P's butcher shop & deli on Shades Crest Road. Mr. P's has great steaks, but I can't recall if they have poultry or not.
I happened to be in V. Richard's this morning, didn't see duck breasts but when I asked the meat guy, he said they do have them, 6-oz. breasts that come in a 4-pack. Since you're in Forest Park (if I remember correctly), this would be your closest option anyway. HTH
