Where to buy a capon?

starvomarvo Jul 18, 2011 11:54 AM

Does anyone know whether it's possible to purchase a capon in Brooklyn someplace? Are they seasonally available? (I understand D'artanagan carries them, but not all year round.) Any leads appreciated, thanks!

    I'm not sure where in Brooklyn you live, but Staubitz's website says they carry them.


    Also, I would be Los Paisanos would have them too, even though their website doesn't mention them.

    222 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

    Paisanos Meat Market
    162 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

      Ooh - we are close to Staubitz and Paisanos and will definitely give them a look - I'm a terrible defroster, but it's good to know frozen might be available as well. Thanks to you both!

      I believe that Eagle Provisions (5th Ave and 18th St) carries frozen capons year round. Ive use them successfully. If you have a local butcher, they may be able to provide as well.
