turkey legs?

a weird thing to crave, i know. i used to live somewhere that had a small saturday market/ craft fair; one vendor set up a huge grill and sold those smoked turkey legs, renaissance fair style. any idea where i could find one? topsfield fair maybe?

    i think the fair has turkey legs but from my memory they're not smoked.

    i do see them at the super stop and shop at the Loop in Menthuen pretty frequently.

      Topsfield Fair definitely has them (or, at least, has always had them in past years); as I recall, they're pretty near the entrance. Same stand has those big bowls of freshly-fried potato chips.

      I've never been, but isn't there a big renaissance fair happening this month? I'm repressing the name, but I think it's in Carver. Pretty safe bet that they'd have them. You could do a horizontal comparison between those and the ones at Topsfield if your craving was strong enough!

        King Richard's Faire. Yikes.

        Market Basket in Somerville has gigantic turkey legs, roasted not smoked. And really good for when you are going for the caveman look.

          yep, King Richard's Faire in carver. turkey legs, yes. smoked turkey legs, no.

          A freind who works at Disney says theirs are 22% sodium. 24% would make them shelf stable.
