Anyone have a lead on a good purveyor of tasty whole turkeys (uncooked)?

  1. Ecofriendly does the heritage birds, catch them at the Dupont or Courthouse farmers markets - I usually get mine from Balduccis, the "natural' variety - I have found them to be in the sweet spot of flavor/price for me.

    Lots of other places out there might but I don't have first-hand experience with these - You may try Red Apron or Society fair in Alexandria.

      Red Apron -- good call. Thanks!

    2. You can pre-order a turkey at the Dupont Circle farmers market. I've never ordered one myself (I always go home to Boston for the holiday) but I love the idea of getting it straight from the farmer!

        2. Hillside Turkey Farm, Thurmont Maryland! Hands down the best anywhere...They sell to Chevy Chase Supermarket, at least they did in the past!
