Where to buy veal in Boston


#1

Where do you buy veal in Boston on a regular basis without having to preorder it ? There are a number of supermarkets which have from time to time veal but often only one cut, e.g. for scallopini but are there any places where you can get a more diverse options of cuts, e.g. veal breast or shank without calling ahead

I’d guess Savenor’s, but you may want to call them (once, not every time) with that question. They have a pretty wide routine selection, but I have not closely examined their veal variety.

The butcher counter at the Fresh Pond Whole AmazonFoods is also pretty big, but I think there’s not much veal there routinely. I may be wrong.

The Fresh Pond WF is one of our regular markets and they have unfortunately little veal. I talked with the guys at Savenor’s some time ago and they mentioned that they could get most veal cuts within a week (which is not bad but dome times you can’t always plan a week ahead)
