Where to buy Kosher Chicken in Boston Area?

Tried to order Empire from Peapod, but they were out...Trader Joe's says they no longer carry whole chickens because the company they were dealing with was unreliable...any suggestions on where to buy? We are in the financial district but will travel. Thanks!

  1. There are a number of kosher markets in Brokline - The Butcherie or Beacon Kosher

      Beacon Kosher has closed, unfortunately. Nearly every major supermarket in Brighton, Newton and Brookline has Empire.

    2. Are you only interested in whole chickens? If not, Costco carries the Empire boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $8.30 (I think, from memory) a 2lb. bag IQF (Individually Quick Frozen). They are usually in stock in the Dedham and Waltham stores.

        Thanks so much - yea, I like whole chickens much better, but that's a good option as well...

      2. TJ's in needham had kosher chicken, whole, as of yesterday...if you come out to the burbs, go to Gordon Alperin. More expensive than TJ's but very reliable and good.

        1. Trader Joe's in Arlington and in Burlington sells whole kosher chickens, as does Stop and Shop in Lexington. I'm willing to guess that the Stop and Shop in Brookline sells them, also. Needless to say, the Butcherie also has them.

          The wholesaler for Empire used to be on Blue Hill Ave in Dorchester, and would sell to the public. Anyone know if this is still true?
