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!

  1. 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.

    2. 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.

      1. Bumping this up for this year, as I'm looking for a goose for Thanksgiving. Any new suggestions?

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

        2. 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.

          1. 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.).
