One of the San Franciscan’s posted a link (on eBlob) to a place in the city that sells game meat. I wouldn’t mind getting the name of that place again.

A lot of places – even places Jay mentioned – provide access via Amazon.com.

I have gotten lots of odd Japanese things through Amazon (piped to various other online shops).

And Latienda.com has its whole catalog under the Amazon umbrella.

I am a fan of Hudson Valley for Foie Gras and Duck

http://www.farm-2-market.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Not easy to get good seafood to Omaha… they have been consistant for me. Spot Prawns, Copper Salmon and my recent Halibut cheeks.

Oregon mushroom too

Alan, I take it you haven’t ordered crabcakes in a while. Robert Morris Inn has been done with restaurant and online ordering for a couple years. Sad as they were the best I’ve had.

you’re right–they’re so rich–I’ll take them off my list! Website is still up, though, with a note that they are temporarily closed . . .

Order - Bentons Hams (bacon, ham)

http://www.cajunsausage.com/index.htm (andouille, tasso)

Was it Polarica? See http://www.polaricausa.com/ . They are around the corner from the Harrington winery where I’m a sometimes cellar-rat. Their selection tends to vary, so probably need to give them a call.


Great idea and great list.

(Though FWIW I don’t believe one can actually order anything from Animal Farm. I picked up a pound last fall by arranging a couple of weeks ahead of time and then retrieving at the farm. So not what I’d consider an online source.)

http://www.brownetrading.com/ (seafood)
http://www.atthemeadow.com/shop/ (salt)

It would be very helpful if people only posted places where they are a customer.

Thought I would include another regular:

No mention of Artisinal Cheese yet. First rate.

That’s it! Thanks!

Oh, and chocosphere too! Great resource for chocolate ready-to-eat and cooking products.
