Where to buy goose (to cook) in the SFV

BigBrother Dec 6, 2012 03:47 PM

Hey all, we're looking to make a goose soon, but are looking for a bird on the smaller size (maybe between a normal sized goose and an adult duck).

Before I go calling every Gelsons or butcher in town, thought I would check here- any suggestions?

    Believe it or not Ralphs has it - frozen not fresh, but they have it.

      Bought my Ralph's goose just the other day. Not cheap. $4.95/lb. Be sure to cook your goose in a way to save the rendered goose fat. Potatoes crisped in that stuff, OMG.

          Saw a bunch at the 99 Ranch in Arcadia, also really really expensive - and frozen. I'm thinking this is a commodity that you'll never find a bargain on, though you might check out the various live-poultry outlets. As much as I love those things, I just can't swing $70 or so for a frozen bird.
