Where to find your Thanksgiving turkey
Thanksgiving is just days away, and it’s never too soon to start planning the details. If you’re looking for a great specialty turkey, you should start planning now — many birds sell out quickly.
Here is a list of stores supplying various turkeys (and check out this helpful guide for turkey definitions and labeling) . If we’re missing a place, send me an email at email@example.com so I can keep the list current.
