Where To Buy Turkey Wings and Necks???

oakjoan Nov 15, 2007 08:49 PM

I'm looking to buy wings and necks for stock and haven't been able to find any that aren't smoked.

Any suggestions? Or am I going to have to buy chicken parts for gravy stock?

I tried Berkeley Bowl and they said no.

    You may try a place like the Divisidero Meat Market (Divis and Hayes) or the meat market on Haight at Fillmore.

        I've seen turkey parts sold at Mollie Stone's. This is rather frequent, but not predictable.

          I tend to find them at Safeway and other Chain Supermarkets....

            yes, bigger Safeways often have them, year round. They might be sold out right now, however...

            Andronico's in Palo Alto had them a couple of days ago - in their frozen meat section (near their frozen demi glace). You can call the one in Berkeley.

              I've seen them in the frozen meat cases at Whole Foods.

                There's a place I see from the freeway -- Fair Deal Market(?) -- in Oakland. Looks like your normal butcher/meat market which might carry it

                  You might try Mission Market Fish & Poultry, 2590 Mission Street, between 22nd & 21st Streets, San Francisco. 282-3331

                    You might try Magnani Poultry on Hopkins (across from Monterey Market)

                      I usually find turkey wings, necks and backs at either Safeways or Raleys. I start asking a week or so before I need them to make sure they will be available - make that stock early!

                        Isn't Magnani on College anymore or did they close that location when they opened on Hopkins?

                          Magnani hasn't been on College for at least five or so years, maybe more. You haven't driven down College in a while, have you, oakjoan?

                        I'll vouch for this one. I buy them here fresh all the time - not just at Thanksgiving

                        I saw them at Berkeley Bowl this afternoon, despite what they told you.
