Where do you get your Thanksgiving Turkey?

Preferably outside of Philly- Main Line, Chester County, etc... Looking for something special and delicous.

  1. At the Lancaster Country market in Wayne. As you walk into the building along the left wall, there is a poulterer. We get them there every year. Not frozen. Good birds.


      1. Here's another vote for the poultry vendor at the Farmer's Market in Wayne. I believe it's called Rittenhouse Farms. You can preorder, even pre-pay, and pick up the freshest bird imaginable on Wednesday, the day before Tksgvg. Been doing it for years.

        1. What a great seasonal topic. There is a place out in the sticks I sometimes go. Can't recall the name at the moment. I think it's a bad case of Phillies Phever but I have been thinking about ordering my turkey, and sides, from Barbecue USA this year. If I do that I'll likely get a ham there too. Gotta check on pricing.

          1. Palmer's turkey farm in Camden/Wyoming, Delaware. It is a long drive, but you can't beat locally grown and fresh killed. Call ahead.
