Where to buy a whole duck in New Haven?

Emmmily Jan 13, 2010 08:45 AM

I found an intrigueing looking Szechuan duck recipe (Fuchsia Dunlop) that I want to try out for a dinner party this weekend, but I'm having trouble finding a duck in New Haven. No luck at Shaws on Whalley, Nica's, or Hong Kong Market. Any suggestions? (I will have access to a ride, so Hamden is within reach, though probably not further afield than that.) Thanks!

    Thanks all! For future duck seekers, I made a few calls and they also carry ducks at Romeo & Cesare's, and (driving), Whole Foods and Big Y.

        Stop & Shop carries them frequently. If you don't find one, ask a butcher behind the glass. They will get one for you.

          Stop & Shop on Amity Rd usually has them. Ferraro's on Grand St has them frozen
