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.

  1. I bought duck livers and duck leg confit from the duck man at Union Square on Monday a few weeks ago, and saw that he had duck pastrami. And yes, it was called Hudson Valley Duck Farm.

    1. 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.
