Q.: Where can I buy dressed rabbit in the Akron area? I’ve been hungry for rabbit stew.
— Dortha Jessop, Copley Township
A.: Rabbit isn’t hard to find. Most of the area’s specialty butcher shops carry it.
At the West Point Market in Akron and Leach’s Meats & Sweets in Barberton, you’ll find it frozen. Kirbie’s Meats & Catering in Stow gets fresh rabbit in once a month. Butchers dress it and freeze it on site and nearly always have it in stock.
DiFeo & Sons Poultry in Akron gets six fresh rabbits in every Wednesday morning. The shop advises calling first to ensure there is still one in stock, particularly if you want it later in the week.
