How to pick a Thanksgiving turkey at local Durham NC farms

If you are looking to buy a locally-sourced turkey in time for Thanksgiving — or Christmas — here are a few tips.

From the many farmers’ markets of the Triangle to a smattering of independent farms in the rural areas, there are plenty of options for those interested in getting a turkey that was raised locally.

Most local turkey farms are already taking orders and beginning to sell out of a wide-variety of turkey, including broad-breasted whites, bourbon reds, Narrangansett and heritage turkeys.

Additionally, many local farmers’ markets are offering special pre-Thanksgiving markets to make it easier to buy local items for holiday meals.

The Eno River, Carrboro, Chapel Hill and Durham farmers’ markets will all have their last market days before Thanksgiving, Nov. 23, on Tuesday, Nov. 21. The Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market’s last market day will be Wednesday, Nov. 22 and the Hillsborough Farmers Market’s last pre-Thanksgiving market is Saturday, Nov. 18.

Here are some local farms with turkeys for sale this holiday season. If you don’t see your favorite local farm listed, feel free to let us now.
