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.

  1. there're a few old school butchers w/in 10 miles, i'm sure they will have or know. sorry can't give you names -- there're also a couple restaurants in n brunsw that would know or even source. chrs

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

        1. The Pennsylvania Dutch Market on 27 just a bit sout of RT 522 told me they normally have them.
