Ducklegs around boston (Fresh)

  • 16
  • Share

Stop and Shop used to sell a pair of ducklegs for about $3:50 but stopped a while back. I managed to get my local S&S (Woburn) to special order them but was such a hassle. So, anyone in the area that sell fresh ducklegs for a reasonable price?

      I know the Moulard duck legs are $6.99 per package, but they do sell cheap long island ducks, I know.

    2. I have seen them recently at the Malden Super88, last time I really looked closely was about 3 weeks ago. Can't remember the exact price, but it was pretty good. I would suspect South Bay has them too. Usually the Allston one had them too, although I can't say I saw them on my most recent visits.

        I just bought a pair on Saturday at Malden super 88. $3.50

      2. Saw them at my local shaws (Belmont) over the weekend... haven't seen them before, don't know if they will be stocked regularly.

        1. I buy them at WFM often. I've had bad luck with Savenor's and the freshness of their game meats.

            Which Whole Foods do you find them at? I've been hoping for a return of duck breasts to Whole Foods, either River St. or Alewife.

              Most often I got to the Woburn store. I didn't check yesterday, but I got some last week.

                Were they in one of the side cases? I shop at WF Woburn and don't remember seeing them but that would be a good resource.

                I have always seen them at Super 88 Allston although come to think of it, frozen more often than fresh.

                  They were in the case with the whole chickens and parts.

                  almansa, I spoke to the crew at WFM in Woburn today and according to them, they haven't carried ducklegs for the last two years so I'm confused.

                  Thanks for the rest of the replies, sounds like Malden Super88 is the place to go.

                  1. re: Ferrari328

                    The Malden Super88 yesterday only had frozen duck legs (and a previously frozen duck, which looked very nice) no fresh. Plenty of them, usually 3 to a pack for $3.25/lb and packages a hair over $4.

            2. Just saw ducklegs for a similar price at the Shaw's in Porter Square on Sunday. May be a new item for them, as this was the first I'd noticed.

              1. Funny, I was just looking for them on Friday- I went to Chinatown, but I didn't know that the Super 88 there had closed, and the other groceries I looked in didn't have them (duck tongues yes, duck legs no).
                I ended up buying frozen at Fresh Pond Market in Huron village. They were about $4 each. I would guess that Mayflower poultry on Cambridge street would have them too.

                1. how about duck fat in quantity?
                  all i can find are the small-ish D'Artagnan tubs.

                  1. Someone in line behind me at the Somerville Market Basket today was purchasing a whole, fresh duckling. (They also had some nice shrimp, some beautiful kale, and a few winter squashes and I was wondering if I should try to finagle a dinner invite...)
