  1. There was an article in Gothamist today you might be interested in:

    1. interesting article. but since i'm not going to spend $169 on my shipped heritage turkey (tho i want to, that's a bit steep for me)..where to get the next best thing in brooklyn? any of the vendors at the gap market or somewhere else? i've figured out i need a 16-18 lb turkey.

      1. Union Market may offer something. DiPola (I think that's the name) at GAP should be taking orders soon.

        1. For the past two years, I have purchased my bird from the turkey guy at the Grand Army Plaza Green Market. Is it Dapaulo's? Anyway, wonderful bird. But you should get your name on the sign-up sheet soon.

            so here's a question. if you get the turkey at the farmer's market, do you have to put it in the freezer for a few days and then thaw it all out? farmer's market: sat./tgiving: thurs.

          2. I was at Applewood the other night and read that they're selling organic turkeys. Not sure how much.
