      Have You Bought Your Thanksgiving Turkey Yet? Here’s Where to Do It

      Dig this helpful guide from the folks at GrowNYC, the non-profit group behind city Greenmarkets. It’s a list of which of their farmers citywide are selling turkeys, plus how to order them and where you can pick them up. And if it’s heritage breeds and pastured poultry you’re after, don’t forget your mail-order friends at Heritage Foods USA, whose office is based in Williamsburg. There’s also the Meat Hook (Williamsburg), Marlow & Daughters (Southside), and Fleischer’s Grass-Fed and Organic Meats (Park Slope), too.

      Until now Brooklyn’s Heritage Foods only sold its meats directly to chefs and restaurants or online, serving as broker between small family farms who can’t afford to process their proteins and city customers who want sustainably sourced meat. Last week they moved into real brick and mortar digs, in what used to be Jeffrey’s Meat Market in the Essex Street Market.
