Buying a Whole Duck in Portland, OR?

Hi there,

I'm trying to buy a whole duck and cook it in the authentic Peking Duck recipe. Any suggestions for the best place to buy a whole duck?

I'm thinking FuBonn or maybe Uwajimaya, but I'd love to get it from a regular Safeway/Fred Meyer if other readers found that they carry such meats and are usually good quality.

Thanks in advance for your help! :)

  1. In addition to Fubonn and Uwajimaya, I've also seen whole duck at HMart.

    I betcha you could ask Viande to special order you a whole duck.

    1. You should be able to get duck at any of the multitude of Asian Markets in PDX. Many of them have high quality fresh ducks and usually cheaper than a frozen duck somewhere else.

      Sheridan Fruit could probably order you up either a fresh or frozen duck if you don't want to hit the above.

      1. Kookoolan Farms has fresh whole ducks at the Hillsdale Farmers' Market on Sundays. I think you can also go out to their farm and buy them directly:

        1. Thanks for all your suggestions! I'll definitely check out some of these places I've never been heard of yet (Viande, Sheridan Fruit, and Kookoolan Farms)

          Happy cooking!

            Hey TThea,

            One other possibility is to contact Nicky USA, 223 SE 3rd Ave, (503) 234-4263

            The are one of the suppliers of fowl and meat for the restaurant at which I work. If you call them up and tell them that you want a whole duck, and are paying cash, they may let you drop by and pick one up.


          2. WINCO also has whole ducks.
