Food Find: Duck fat at Your Dekalb Farmers’ Market

posted on April 9, 2010 at 2:58 pm

I get so many emails asking where you can buy duck fat. Well, it seems I finally have an answer other than “ask your butcher.”

Your (not mine, yours) Dekalb Farmers’ market is selling it in their poultry section for $1.99 a pound. They are getting it from Crescent Long Island Ducklings that are fed natural grains and not pumped full of hormones or growth stimulants.

Don’t scroll down if mounds of duck fat irk you. All I see is potential. Duck fat fries, eggs fried in duck fat, confit, arteries clogging….yum.

    This is a pet peeve of mine – ALL poultry and waterfowl in this country is hormone and antibiotic free per USDA regulations. Pointing out that it’s missing that stuff (with the subtext implying that therefore it’s better than the competition) is EXTREMELY disingenuous.

    You can get them at the Morningside Farmers’ market on occasion, but they run out fast. You have to get there early…

    I think the DeKalb market has stopped carrying the raw duck-fat. They do have the tiny containers in the spice aisle though. In Alpharetta the NY Butcher Shoppe carries it already rendered for about $8 lb. I cooked some fries and mussels with it this weekend and well…damn

    Does anybody know if there has been any update on duck fat availability at YDFM? How about Buford?
