Where to buy a whole duck in New Haven?

  • 7

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!

    they are technicaly a wholesalere , but they have hooked me up with hard to find stuff in the past, give them a call . If they can help you would be going into the office at the front of the warehouse.

    1. these guys are also good, again give them a call, if they don't have it they will order it

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

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

          1. AFAIK Bella Bella Gourmet has them and much more.
