Where to buy duck prosciutto?
Does anyone know where I can buy duck prosciutto in the city, apart from the pre-packaged outrageously expensive form found at Murray's? I bought a breast of duck prosciutto from a guy at the Union Square greenmarket last month, and it was perfect. I went back to try and find him and couldn't, and the woman manning the information booth didn't know who I was talking about. I'm starting to think I hallucinated! Any leads on who he is, or where else I can find duck charcuterie in the city?
ANSWER: Sorry, would delete but don't seem to be able to do so. More persistent googling - 10 pages in for some reason, disclosed that it was most likely Hudson Valley Duck Farm, at the Union Square farmer's market on Mondays.
The Saturday market at the Lincoln Triangle (next to Barnes & Nobel; across from Alice Tully Hall) has a vendor who sells various 'forms' of duck including charcuterie/prosciutto. His stuff is delicious ...I have no idea if he's in fact the same vendor who was in Union Square, but I can tell you he DOES exist and was there yesterday.
