Where to buy suckling lamb leg in boston?

I know wholefood has lambs legs, but I assume those are adult lambs. Anyone knows where I can find suckling lamb in Boston?

  1. Pretty much all lamb for sale is baby/young lamb. If it is adult then it is called mutton, not lamb.

      I think the OP is talking about Spring Lamb which is generally available in the Spring. Savenors carries it in season, they might get lucky at Blood Farm, or trying some halal markets (search the board for options).

    2. i would check Sulmona's in the North End.

      32 Parmenter St

          1. Speaking of really young lamb - I've been served baby lamb in Spain where the whole leg fit on my dinner plate. I've never seen anything remotely that small in the States - anyone know where I might find it?
