Ducklegs around boston (Fresh)

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.
