I rarely eat meat of any kind but do salivate for it once in a while. I was at Costco yesterday and saw their whole roasted chickens that sell for less than $8 and started salivating. But, I didn't buy one as I try to the healthiest meat possible which includes as many as possible of the following attributes: 'organic' (is that the right term?), local, as traditionally and humanely raised as possible, free range, no or little antibiotics in the feed, etc etc. So I went to Cumbrae's and bought a whole chicken there today that they said reflected what I as looking for as best as possible. But, at $4.49 a pound and only being slightly larger than the ones as Costco it cost me over $15 (and I still have to roast it!). But given I'm using it in lieu of a turkey for an Xmas dinner for myself and a friend and the fact it has the attributes I want, I I didn't mind (that much).
However, I was wondering where else in the city one can find similar whole fresh 'organic' chickens.
