Duck in Denver area?

jaybee Oct 29, 2012 10:27 AM

I've been looking for good duck (I'd prefer duck breast on the bone) for cooking, but so far all I've found is some boneless breast at Whole Foods in Boulder, and not great looking fresh/frozen whole duck at H Mart. Is there anywhere that carries a better selection? Anywhere in the Denver metro area is fine. I'm willing to travel.

    If you're open to mail order Hudson Valley Foie Gras is a great source:


    Not sure about breasts on the bone, but they do sell the larger Magret breasts which are a completely different proposition than the scrawny numbers you see at Whole Foods. Shipping is costly as with all mail order but if you place a sufficiently large order it averages out OK.

      That looks promising. I'm not opposed to mail order, although I've never ordered meat that way. They do list Aged Magret de Canard (Duck Breast) on their site. Thanks for the tip.

      I've got 4 wild ducks sitting in my freezer - although, it'll be a pretty penny for me to part with those babies. ;)

      I'm sure you could special order it at Marczyk's. I also took a quick look at Oliver's and they have duck breast listed on their price list. I'm surprised you weren't able to find whole duck at Whole Foods. . .maybe it's a seasonal think for them.

        Thanks for the suggestions. I'm new to Colorado, and I'd never heard of Oliver's. I'll be sure to check them out!
