where to buy a capon in the Naples area

I want to by a fresh capon for Christmas day and am having trouble finding one. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  1. Not many markets carry a capon (castrated rooster). Did you call Winn's and Whole Foods? I know that it is traditional for Coq au Vin, but I have always just used a roasting chicken.

    Have you prepared capon before? I have not, but am interested if you have a special recipe in mind or if it is a certain ethnic tradition. If you want a really fresh killed capon, I'm sure you can order one online in time for the holidays. The Always Curious, LMF

    1. If you can not find a fresh one, Publix caries frozen capons.

      1. Possibly Fresh Market if not Wynn's or Whole Foods as LMF offers.
