duck legs ?

Any suggestions on where they can be had locally? Maybe even fresh vs frozen? Boston/Cambridge area .. north or west?
I have a recipe for a duck leg braise that's calling my name.
Thanks in advance.

        The Charles Street Savenors usually has duck breasts and legs from several breeds (I remember Pekin and Muscovy but there might be others), this is interesting as they vary greatly in size and shape.


    2. Mayflower Poultry Cambridge - call first - very nice and helpful with good prices

          yes to Mayflower, my go to for most things poultry (geese, and rabbit as well). Excellent eggs, lovely folks, get bones for the dog here too and they cut the marrow bones long way, in half, so I can roast them for myself too.

        2. Whole Foods often has duck breast and legs.

            I'm curious which one you've seen them at. I've looked for fresh and not seen them. Thanks.

              I saw them Christmas eve day at the Whole Foods in Arlington - both breasts and whole legs.

          2. I bought some at Roche Brothers here on the Cape on Saturday. They are cryovac'd. I think the price was around $3.99/lb.
