Where can I buy a goose to roast?

Would like to roast a goose instead of a turkey for Thanksgiving.

I would prefer something fresh or farm raised (local) but will take any suggestions.

Thank you!

    I got one at Ottomanelli UES a few years ago. I think that I used a Silver Palate recipe. It takes more attention than a turkey, due to the grease. However, that's also a benefit, because you can render the grease and freeze it for future yummies (potatoes, etc.).

      Where can I find a good recipe to roast a goose....?

      We are tired of turkey and, at the end of the day, its a lot of work and all you get is --- turkey.

      Thanks for posting the question.

          You can order them from Citarella, which we've been doing for the past few years. They're usually available in 1-2 days.

          I think I think seen it available at ottomanelli on Bleecker St. I have even seen it at Whole Foods at Tribeca before. Call to confirm first.

            Quattro Farms, who has a stand at the Saturday Greenmarket in Union Square has beautiful, free-range raised geese for sale. That is where I plan to get my goose for New Years.

              you might try asking the butcher at the Essex St market. If he doesnt have one, he'll probably order one for you.
