Magret duck breast in Seattle?

mattwright Dec 29, 2008 09:37 AM

Hiya everyone.. and happy new year (almost..) to start.

I am looking for some Magret duck breasts, to do some duck proscuitto with. I was hoping to buy locally, and was wondering if anyone knew of some stores in Seattle that carry this particular kind of duck breast?

Thanks!

    I can't find any either! Very frustrating in this large city. You can order wholesale from Nicky USA, I think. We always bring a cooler with us when we visit Portland and hit the NW Market last to pick some up fresh and bring home to Seattle.

      Frozen at A&J Meat Market in Queen Ann (boneless, not sure if you get get bone in). Also try University Seafood and Poultry in the U District. They have fresh duck occasionally.

        So I found some!!!!!!!!!!!! The magret breast is something rather special, and most places had never heard of it, let alone stocked it.

        Uni Seafood and AJ only had either pekin breasts/legs/whole - and couldn't say if they were naturally and humanely raised.

        The problem with Nicky, d'artagnan and so forth is the shipping prices for regular home customers. They obviously have to overnight it, and unless you are buying a lot, it just doesn't make any sense. I got quoted between $30 and $60 delivery costs - pretty much the price of what I was ordering.

        However.. Don and Joes in Pikes market order anything from Nicky. You get it in a couple of days with NO SHIPPINGS COSTS!! This worked out great for me. I will certainly be using those guys again.
