Best place to get bones for stocks near Silver Spring?

Hi can anyone recommend a good place to get bones for stocks: veal, beef, chicken necks, etc, that's near Silver Spring-ish. Full service butcher or grungy supermarket, doesn't matter. Whole foods sometimes has bones in the freezer but as usual they're more expensive than bones should be. Maybe i'm naïve, but i was hoping to find bones for under 50 cents a pound.

thanks! new in town

          I take it that's no longer the case? I'm trying to find veal bones/bits and pieces.

          1. Try the Silver Spring farmer's market. There are a few meat vendors there, they will probably be able to help you. It's in downtown Silver Spring Saturday mornings until noon.
