Turkeys

Pre-Ordering Has Ended, But Many Options Still Available!

We have a variety of organic and conventional turkeys available without a reservation leading up to Thanksgiving.

Get your fresh, local turkey from City Market, starting as low as $3.19/lb! We carry a variety of options from Stonewood Farm in Orwell, Misty Knoll Farm in New Haven, Adams Turkey Farm in Westford, Maple Wind Farm in Huntington. Learn more about our turkey farms.

Please note: We will do our best to fulfill all orders for Stonewood Farm turkeys. However, due to a supply issue at their farm, we may not receive all orders. In the event that we are not able to get enough turkeys from Stonewood Farm, we will substitute a Misty Knoll Farm turkey for you at the same price of $3.19/lb. Thank you in advance for your understanding and thank you for supporting local farms!

*What is Air-Chilled?

To cool poultry to the correct temperature after slaughter, most farms immerse the birds in cold water. This can cause the meat to absorb extra water and also creates greater risk of cross-contamination between birds. The air-chilling method uses several chambers of cold air instead. Without the added moisture, air-chilled birds have better, less diluted flavor.
