Duck Eggs?

The quail egg thread on this site has me wondering about places to find duck eggs (goose eggs?) in the Boston area. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. Savenors in Cambridge had 4 packs of duck eggs last time I was there. Reasonable too.

    1. I've also seen that at Formaggio and possibly Russo's.

      1. lowell's cambodian groceries carries duck eggs, quail eggs, chicken eggs, even duck or chicken eggs with embryo (balut).

        1. I think I've seen them at the CMart in Chinatown. I believe they weren't preserved, but I'm not 100% sure.

            I rarely see fresh duck eggs in Chinatown, but preserved (salted) or the balut is definitely available.

            Just an FYI if anyone is trekking to Chinatown or a Chinese grocery store for a look, it's Chinese New Year effective tomorrow (Feb 7th) so they will likely be closed. Some may even close for up to 3 days (though that's rare here in Boston).
