Where can I buy decent priced veal shank ala Osso buco veal?

Hi I got a question here, anyone know where can I find veal shank / Osso Buco veal at a not too expensive price? I tried to find them at place like Dominick and Boback but no luck. When I went to Whole Food the other day I found some but it is pretty damn expensive there at $15.99 per pound. Any chance that some of you know where to find them at a not highway robbery price?

    I've gotten veal shanks, roasts, and other cuts from either Joe or Angelo Caputo's which are located throughout Chicagoland. They were cheaper than the ones at Whole Foods (which I only frequent if I really have to for a number of reasons) at the same quality.

    I can't tell you whether Angelo or Joe Caputo's is better (same family/different owners and stores), yet some people have also recommended EuroFresh which I believe is also a better bet than wholefoods.

    Good luck!
