H-Mart in Catonsville is a good choice. They have all sorts of cuts of meat, seafood, and crazy produce. While not all organic or grass-fed, they've got good stuff cheap. I've also been pretty successful at most of the farmer's markets.

I get offal from the Farmer's market (grass fed beef innards), Asian market (duck gizzards, pork hearts), and a Mediterranean store (all kinds of goat/sheep innards, including tripe) close to where I live in the Bay Area.

Chicken liver is way easier to mask than beef liver. I put about a half a pound in my chili and don't really notice it (that's to about 2lbs of other meat).

yes, bother with it. the liver detoxifies the animal, but it doesn't store toxins, that's sort of a myth. liver doesn't have much fat, so worrying about the fatty acid composition isn't really worth it. eat that liver!
