Is there an online source for buying soup and marrow bones?

I've been looking for an online source for buying bones for soup & roasting for marrow, and having them delivered to me. Does anyone have any recommendations?

  1. Not sure where you're located, but do you have a supermarket near you that delivers (such as ShopRite, or Stop'NShop)?

    Just about every supermarket I've ever been in with a meat section either sells these items regularly or can supply them on a day's notice. Since so many supermarkets have home delivery these days, it would be worth a few phone calls to check that option out.

        That company's soup bones are $5.99 a pound! Isn't there a butcher shop nearby? You could have a nice roast, then make soup for the same money.

      2. You might want to post this request on your local SF board, since you will be able to find a local source.

        1. Is it that you can't find them in SF or that you specifically need home delivery of groceries?

            I specifically need home delivery, yes.

          2. You may want to try some of the new delivery services that have started up in SF, TaskRabbit or Postmates. Here's article about some of them:

            I haven't used these myself, but they may be worth a try.
