Looking for well-priced free-range turkey for Christmas dinner

Yongeman Dec 17, 2012 08:23 AM

Any tips on who has nice turkeys at a good price this year? I've bought Beretta in the past, as well as Healthy Butcher birds, with good results. Thanks.

    Everyone's pocket is a little different, so define "good price?"

    Also the average price for most Free-Range Turkey's seem to be about $3-4/lb, so YMMV.

      Thanks asagirl. I just priced Beretta turkeys at a small market near Yonge and Eg (Marcheleo's) at $4.99 for a 12-15 lb bird. I'll pay this if I have to but would prefer to find a slightly cheaper and slightly larger turkey. Thanks.

        Try St. Andrews Poultry over by Spadina and Kensington, they should have Turkey's at a better price.

          I have no problem with St. Andrews, but some in my family would prefer a free-range or organic turkey.

      May be too late to order but you could try Fresh from the Farm on Donlands...

          Try Sanagan's Meat Locker on Baldwin, where the old European Meat Market used to be - probably free range, not organic. Very good and very nice people, but you have order soon.
