Quail Eggs

Does anyone know where to get quail eggs in Westchester or up to the Greenwich area?

    I only have found them "fresh" in Asian Markets . I've seen small such markets , obscure and unadvertised in college towns

      Fairway or Whole Paycheck, *ahem* Foods are both worth a try. I know WF has duck eggs in the produce section. They may have quail eggs in the cheese dept (not Greenwich- go to White Plains or Darien). Call ahead to Fariway Pelham and ask for the cheese manager (Anthony?). I bet they have them.

        Actually, Fairway in Pelham doesn't have quail eggs, or at least they didn't when we looked last week.. The DH is going to an Asian market in WP to check there, and I will call WFs to send him there if he doesn't have any luck in the Asian market. Thanks for the suggestions.

          Did you look in the Asian food section of Fairway, near the pickles? I remember Fairway in the city having them...

            Canned are more common

        Thanks everyone. We found them at the big Asian market in White Plains (the one in the same building as the DMV).

          I see you already got them but, 4 Seasons/C-Town on route 133 in Ossining has them fresh (and at a wonderful price)

            I always see them in WF, but in the produce section, not the egg section.
