Squab (butcher) in Boston metro area?

I love squab. Loves it. Does anyone know where I could order butchered squab in the area? I'm willing to drive a bit for it.

    I know the live bird places in China town have it, as I think Mayflower in Cambridge.

    Try the amazing cooked version at Best Little Restaurant in Chinatown, amazingly good.

      Game (birds or not) at Mayflower is generally only frozen, but they do carry frozen squab. There have been a few minor changes to the list below, but not enough to post a full update.

      Savenors on Charles Street woul also have squab, probably pre-packaged however.

          Ming's Market in the South End usually has frozen squab.

            Barbara Lynch's Butcher Shop might have it but it would be $25 a pound.
