Where to buy fresh, not pre-frozen, duck breast

Looking to score about 2 pounds worth on Wednesday. Any suggestions? I'll be travelling through downtown around noon and live near the University of Washington.

    I would call a couple of the meat counters at Pike Place Market and ask them to order it for you. This is really short notice though!

        I saw duck breasts in the refrigerated meat case at the Roosevelt Whole Foods on Saturday. However, I think it's just the stuff they normally sell frozen.

        Metropolitan Market in Lower Queen Anne seems to carry fresh, never-frozen duck breasts, but you'll pay $22.99/pound for the privilege. Is it really that much better?

            for future reference, some of the sellers in the U-District Farmer's market are selling fresh duck these days. I know i saw a sign for it at the Stokesberry stand.

            Not sure if they sell it in pieces though if they did, I'd be happy. I'd like to make some duck confit and have no use for duck breasts.
