Healthy Living Market and Café’s annual Thanksgiving turkey pre-order program is in full swing. The leading grocery store has been offering the freshest local and fair-priced turkeys for generations and this year will be no different. Running through November 20th, guests can order local, free-range and hormone-free turkeys over the phone, in-store or online at http://www.local.healthy-living-staging/thanksgiving-turkeys-new-york/


Healthy Living also wants to see one of these locally and humanely-raised turkeys on every table this year by partnering with the Wilton Food Pantry to donate a percentage of turkey’s sold to the local food shelf.

In addition to buying a turkey, guests can also support the Wilton Food Pantry in a number of ways at Healthy Living during the holidays. Through October and November, customers can donate to the organization when they check out at the register. Also on the first day of Turkey pick-up, Tuesday November 24th, those customers that are grabbing their turkeys and are in the giving spirit, can pick up (or bring)  non-perishable items to donate to Healthy Living’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. All donations will go directly to families in need this holiday season through the Wilton Food Pantry.



“Once upon a time we sold 25 local turkeys off the back of a truck outside our tiny store in South Burlington, VT. Today we are proud to offer birds of the same quality to our community at a great price,” said Eli Lesser-Goldsmith. “We source from five local, family-owned and operated farms in our region – trusted growers who we’ve known for almost 30 years. These talented and hardworking farmers raise their birds using the most responsible practices and process them just days before the holiday so that your Thanksgiving turkey is as fresh as possible- never frozen and always fantastic.”

“Healthy Living has been a wonderful neighbor since opening their doors in the Wilton Mall three years ago. We appreciate this opportunity to raise funds, food and awareness,” said Dennis Towers, Wilton Food Pantry Co-founder & Board Member. “No one in our community should have to choose between food and necessities – this time of year is particularly difficult for many. Partnerships like this are crucial in helping fulfill our mission, this is truly neighbor helping neighbor.”

This year, Healthy Living will be selling turkeys at $3.19/lb from local Vermont farms including Misty Knoll Farm and StoneWood Farm. Organic birds from New York’s Hidden Camp Farm will also be available for $5.99/lb. For more information and to pre-order your turkey today, click here.
