    They usuually have them down in the North End. Don't know the name of the shop, but I've seen them hanging in the window down on Salem St, near Polcari's.

      D&R is on Salem and Sulmona is on Parmenter. Both less than 100 yards from Polcari's and 1 or both should have them.

        Count me as amazed that fresh rabbit is available in Boston. I've always only seen frozen.

      I think most of the places mentioned in this article are still relevant (the Super88 trying to become Hong Kong Market, but still in limbo, but I have seen rabbit at the Malden HK mkt).

        Tony's market in Roslindale has it sometimes. As we type, I am stewing a frozen wabbit from MB. The Consalves brand. Hunters style w bacon, shrooms, tomato, wine fresh thyme and rosemary.

          I saw frozen rabbit at HMart in Burlington.

            I've been told by my in-laws that Stop & Shop in Watertown carries fresh rabbit on certain days. I'd call first. I think it goes fast. Nonna always cooks a couple of rabbits for Christmas.

              I saw it in the refrigerator case at J. Pace and Sons in Saugus the other day. It was cryovac packaged, so perhaps it's previously frozen, I don't know. Worth a call!

                Savenors would almost certainly have it.
                Mayflower poultry generally has frozen and sometimes has fresh.
                I've seen it at Market basket in Somerville fresh, but I'm not sure if they always have them.

                  Call the Butcher Shop in the South End. They can get something in a day or so and they quote the same price they pay. They don't charge you a handling fee. Their purveyors are top notch too.
