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

      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.

        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.

          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...)

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