Where to get veal bones in central NJ?

Preferably close to South River/East Brunswick. I've spend some time a few weekends ago making stock, beef and chicken, to have ready for upcoming soup season, but now that I'm comfortable with the process, and just received The French Laundry Cookbook as a gift, I'm looking to make veal stock this weekend.

I source my beef and chicken(1$ a carcass with necks!) bones/feet/etc. from Hong Kong supermarket usually, but they do not have veal bones.

Thanks!

      I have seen them on occasion at Shop-Rite on Ernston road. Its either Parlin or Sayreville. If you don't see them, ask the butcher if he can order them for you. I have also gotten pork neck bones that make a delicious stock.

        Try Hind and Fore in Bridgewater. An excellent old school butcher with prime meat which is hand cut. Best butcher i have found in NJ. I know meat as i am originally from Chicago.

        452 State Route 28
        Bridgewater, NJ 08807-2408
