Does anyone know where to source some fresh duck eggs by the dozen or less?

    Mountain View farmers market. I forget the name of the farm/woman, but she also sells fresh, pasture raised chicken eggs.

        Asian markets are a good bet. Also use the search function.

          yeah, I saw that post, but wanted info from 2011 (not sure if the suggestions from 2009 were still a good source...)

            Old Oakland Farmers Market has a vendor that sells duck eggs as well as balut eggs.

          A few, but not all the Chinese supermarkets carry them, and they sell out fast, so day of the week of delivery is important to know. For example, I've seen them at
          Marina Food in San Mateo
          Marina Food in Cupertino

          Salmon Creek Ranch of Bodega sells them at farmers markets and some Whole Foods carry Salmon Creek duck eggs - check the list on the website.

            Good Earth in Fairfax has them. I believe they are from Tacherra.

              Yes, Good Earth almost always has plenty of Tachera duck eggs; Tachera chicken eggs often gone but stack of duck egg cartons still there.
