There has been a shortage on kosher meat...So I was worried about thanksgiving!!!!
I preordered one for Fresh Direct 16lbs for 57$$$ :(
But went to trader joes yesterday and bought a kosher bird 12lbs for 27$$$

Needless to say I cnled my Fresh Direct bird...

Just thought I would pass this on :)

          Wow! That's $84 for a 12-lb turkey!! Empire frozen turkeys are excellent and way, way cheaper.

              I got a 14.6-pound turkey at Kosher Marketplace on Broadway near 90th St. for around $64. Very expensive, but the bird was very good! Looks like I should have gone to Trader Joe's, though.
