Where to get FRESH sweetbreads?

Title says it all... I called Union Meats in Eastern Market, they only have frozen. Fresh, high quality veal sweetbreads in the DC area?

Special order would be fine .. just want to know who might be able to get them.

  1. You might try the Organic Butcher of McLean. If they don't have it, they may be able to get it for you.

    1. This is probably too late and too far out, but there's a place in Marshall, VA (right off Rt 66) that has fresh sweetbreads. It's called The Whole Ox butcher shop. It's located *inside* the IGA grocery store in Marshall. They sell local meats and cheeses and can get you any cut or any part of an animal that you like.
