Where to buy duck eggs?

I'm on UWS but would travel a little... where can I buy fresh duck eggs? Or other non-chicken eggs?

  1. Several of the Union Square Greenmarket vendors sell duck, quail, pheasant and other non-chicken eggs. Go early on a Saturday for the most vendors & the thinnest crowds.

      Yes, I know that Quattro Farms usually has them. I've seen them in Chinatown occasionally as well.

        Just back from Union Square, and Quattro Farms has chicken, pheasant, and wild turkey eggs.

    2. Whole Foods bowery usually has duck, quail, pheasant, emu, and ostrich in the produce section, but not all of them all of the time.

        I agree. I saw Duck Eggs last weekend at Whole Foods bowery/Houston too.

      2. Almost all Whole Foods have duck eggs (99 cents each) and other eggs like pheasant (occasionally) and quail eggs (always). They also carry ostrich eggs and lately emu's eggs.

        Deluxe Food Market in Chinatown carries fresh duck eggs (6 for $2.75) and quail eggs.

        1. I believe I've seen them at Zabar's

          1. I saw them at Whole Foods in the Time Warner building.

              1. Thanks so much -- I chickened out on going to Union Square this morning 'cause I was too sleepy to make it there early, but I will definitely try them in the future. I'm going to try Whole foods or the deluxe food market in Chinatown for this week.

                  I was there around 10 am (don't know if that is early or not) ... and plenty left at that time.

                2. Quattro's duck eggs, available fresh at the USGM in season, are wonderful.
