Fresh rabbit- East Bay, South Bay or Central Valley

Would like to grill some fresh rabbit for Thanksgiving dinner. Any suggestions on where to get some? Most of the places that sell them have it frozen or previously frozen.

    1. I think Enzo's in Market Hall has them fresh. Have you checked Polarica in the City? They get them every Monday.

        Last time I went, the butcher at Market Hall only had frozen. Maybe Cafe Rouge might have it fresh? Sounds ilke you should call first before going anywhere.

          I sent a friend to Cafe Rouge a few years ago when she asked me where to get rabbit and they had it, but I don't know if it was fresh or frozen. They could probably get it for you fresh if you called to order, though.

      2. I wonder if you could special order it at Verbrugge on College Ave. I've bought fresh rabbit from them in the past. but it's been a while.

        1. If you want a really fresh rabbit (slaughtered to order), call Jones Rabbit Farm in Santa Rosa. Here's my post about it from two years ago.

          1. I saw it at the Berkley Bowl this weekend but I don't know if it was previously frozen. My local butcher shop on Fruitvale Ave in Oakland Weyland's sometimes has it fresh but I haven't seen the sign lately. Definitely call ahead
