Their warehouse is 15 minutes from me. I am all over that wild boar shoulder. Thanks.

Thanks, SF! Pete, I'm with you on the boar.

ROAD TRIP!

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

Tangential, yes, but if you're coming out to NJ, consider a stop at Stokes Farm - they just opened their new 7000 sq. ft greenhouse and are open 7 days a week, 9-6.

For those of us without our own wheels, the #25 bus from the Newark PATH/NJT/Amtrak station supposedly takes under 10 minutes. $1.25 exact change.

NJ Transit #25 bus schedule

The NJ Transit #1 bus from Jersey City to Newark also passes nearby.

For drivers from the Jersey City area, the Wilson Avenue exit from US 1-9 (Skyway) is the best alternative

How does NJT feel about shopping carts on their busses (the boxy kind I use to get my groceries home, not the supermarket behemoths)? Or even just open cartons on luggage schleppers?

You might want to give their customer service people a call and ask. I have seen people at the busstop with those two-wheel handcarts many times, so my guess is it's OK.

The quail, whole foie, and some of the boar items are tempting. Shipping makes it not so tempting.

Sale on now, until 4 pm today and from 10am to 4pm tomorrow.

Got back a little while ago, with about 25 pounds of assorted meats and poulty (all frozen). There were virtually no other customers there -- just a family waiting to pick up their order while I decided on mine, which meant that my only wait was while they picked my stuff from the freezer.

You take an order form and fill in how many you want of whichever items, hand it in, they pick it from the freezer and bring it in cartons to the loading dock where you are waiting (inside). They log the order, you pay (cash or credit card) and you're on your way. Very nice people to deal with.

A word of warning if you go by public transportation via Newark Penn Station. Make sure you get the #25 bus heading toward Doremus Ave or the Essex County Correctional Facility, NOT the one labeled "Springfield Avenue/Maplewood." Totally opposite direction. The correct bus takes you straight down Market to Ferry Street (the Ironbound), then onto Wilson Avenue and stops almost directly in front of D'Artagnan (you enter through the parking lot at the far end of the block). Oh, and the bus takes $1 bills plus change, so you don't need a pocketful of quarters.

I know we're all supposed to be abandoning D'Artagnan for Fossil, but D'Artagnan seemingly can read my mind.  Like, just when I'm thinking how much I'd like to mess with their Salt Meadow Lamb at home, I get an email telling me they're selling off their remaining seasonal stock at 30% off.

 

I got a belly.  I think I see another Poitrine d'Agneau Sainte Ménéhould in my immediate future.

I haven't abandoned them either; I still find some of their product quite good, and I like their sales.

 

I saw this sale yesterday, but I was too late to grab a couple of loins.

I feel stupid, but I had thought lamb breast and belly were different things. I've always bought lamb breast, and only ever had "belly" in restaurants.
