Buying Lambs liver

Does anyone know where I can buy lambs liver with 40 miles of Santa Rosa?

  1. You can order lamb parts from Healdsburg's CK Lamb by calling Big John's. I think the delivery day is Thursdays but not positive about this.

    Sal's in Rohnert Park is a halal butcher and has beautiful lamb, goat, and Fulton chickens in the butcher case. Selection is greatest on Fridays but best to call ahead and reserve. I like this stop in RP, as I can combine it with a visit to the Grocery Outlet, a block north.

    Big John's Market
    1345 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg, CA 95448

    Sal's Halal Mediterranean Market
    6590 Commerce Blvd, A Rohnert Park, CA

      Thank you Melanie I know you'd come through :). I have been reading your responses for about 2 years

        Are you making haggis? (g)

          I did live in Scotland for 12 years and I LOVE haggis I was in Edinburgh for 2 weeks past July and eat haggis 5 times. This time I just want to make liver and onions

            I hope you'll give Sal's a try. I stopped by there a couple weeks ago to buy some goat and was able to purchase tiny baby goat. I noticed that the store has reduced its square footage, releasing the adjoining space it used to have, so I hope that we can keep them alive. I prefer this halal butcher to the ones I've been to in Fremont and San Francisco. We're lucky to have this resource in Sonoma County.

              I will, I always support local shops. e.g. I always use Olivers as my supermarket. Try asking Safeway to source something from the old country

        OK Melanie. Here's a harder question: Where can I buy VEAL KIDNEYS in the East Bay? I spent the better part of a week last year trying to locate some but totally failed. They were readily available in the "good old days" but are not now. I heard of a wholesale place in Oakland but they're open only an hour or two a day, don't answer their phone, and I'm not even sure if they carry veal kidneys and if they would sell them to me if they did carry them.

          You would be better off starting a new topic with an appropriate title since you're asking for something completely different and in a different area than the OP, if you hope to attract a response. Most people just skim the subject headings on the board index and don't read every single post, so would never find your request buried here.
