Hello! I was hoping to get this out sooner, but the Bills had that awesome Thursday night game and that completely threw me off my game. If you are still looking to source locally for your thanksgiving dinner it’s not too late! Many of the local farmers markets are open this week for their last hurrah. The East Aurora Farmers Market will be open Wednesday morning so your thanksgiving dinner is sure to be fresh. Try to get there early for the best produce; there are also pies, breads and coffees available at this small yet stocked market.
The Lexington Coop has some locally sourced turkeys as well as an organic turkey options. They also have prepared sides to order. Call ahead, first come first served.
If you’re in the Lockport area, Blackman Homestead Farm is a one stop shop for fresh turkeys, produce, sauces and gift baskets. If you’re a guest attending dinner, their apple gift boxes are sure to please as a unique hostess gift.
Five Points Bakery is a wonderful source for dinner rolls, and that oh-so-necessary bread for those day after thanksgiving sandwiches. Five Points sources its wheat locally and all breads are baked on premise; you can’t get any more “slow” than that! Some of their breads are processed in a way that many people with gluten sensitivities are able to enjoy. You can also take advantage of a year-round CSA and they often sell their freshly ground flour. Call ahead for availability.
Have a very happy and Slow Thanksgiving!
