Good places to buy beef/lamb/goat bones for soup?

fadista | Dec 16, 2012 11:19 PM

Where are some good places to buy big marrow-rich (beef/lamb/goat) bones for soup? I know this question has been asked before, but I hoped for updates.

Cost is one priority. I'm willing to pay more for grass-fed or otherwise "known higher-quality" product, though not Draeger's prices.

Currently I buy lamb shanks at Rose Market in Mountain View. There, as elsewhere, I think I'm mostly paying for the flesh, though what I really care about is the bone.

Previous posts here and elsewhere say "ask any butcher." What's the etiquette of asking a butcher to sell me dirt-cheap bones (that they might discard) when I'm not doing any other business with them?
