    You can get rendered duck fat at Central Market, I don't think they carry goose fat. You can also render it yourself, it's not too much work.

      You might try the guy at the downtown Farmers Market that sells fresh goose-

        Thanks, Barleybob. I wish I'd gone yesterday. I could be rendering it right now! Sometimes I just want to cook with the fat without having to buy, cook and eat a whole goose. It times past, it seems as if I used up about 1/2 of a goose's goosefat just frying potatoes to go alongside....maybe I haven't done a good job of rendering in the past.

          How low of a flame do you have the goose rendering on? I feel like you should get more fat out of the goose considering how much more fatty than duck it is...
