    Question Where can I buy goose?

    I'm trying to find goose, preferably freshly killed, with all the
    inside stuff (liver, gibletts), and the skin still on.
    I live in S. California.
    I'm from Hungary, and I have loads of great goose recipies.
    We have a holiday coming up when goose is the bird to eat,
    and I miss it.
    Thanks,
    Andi

    Cool

    Andi,

    Funny you should ask. I was just looking for the same today. Although I can't promise you a fresh one, I did find frozen at Ralphs. If you have a Bristol Farms, Whole Foods or Gelson's locally, you might check with the meat departments. Those are the sorts of markets I'd think would be your best bets.

    Good luck!

    Try this web site: http://www.exoticmeats.com/cart/prod...ms.asp?line=11

    I don't know if they sell the goose fresh or frozen but their homepage has a phone number so you could call them.

    Gail, someone else told me the same: look at Whole Foods. I'll
    check soon, and I'll let you know too.
    Sneezles, I checked out the link, they had the goose right there,
    but the bird + shipping would come out to about $100!
    I have to find something local.

    A friend of mine told me that he bought a live duck in China Town,
    and I should check there. Hmm, but I'm not looking forward
    taking out the feathers myself (they would kill it on request).

    Thanks

    Yikes! $100! I've only ever used the site for recipes (we bought 1/2 a buffalo) and they have some great recipes! Our wee little grocer even carries frozen goose but then this is a very Czech area so maybe they celebrate the holiday the same way?

    Hmm, maybe, or it's because goose is as common over there
    as turkey is here. I have to look around, maybe I found a
    Hungarian grocer nearby or an international market.
