Elevate Your Thanksgiving Feast with These Essentials from the Public Market

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and the folks at Grow Ohio Valley are encouraging the community to consider adding its Public Market to their Thanksgiving shopping itinerary. Since opening in 2019, the Public Market has sold fresh turkeys and side dishes for Thanksgiving meals across the Ohio Valley. The tradition continues this year, with orders available through Friday, Nov. 17. 

The Thanksgiving turkeys come from the Lewis Turkey Farm and have never been frozen, are antibiotic-free, vegetarian-fed, and humanely raised. The Lewis family has been producing high-quality products since 1954 and butcher their turkeys in their USDA-certified processing facility on their family farm in Oak Hill, Ohio. Their customers have the comfort of knowing the entire process from start to finish, starting as day-old poults until harvested fresh at Thanksgiving. Turkeys are $5.59 a pound and are eligible for a 50% discount when purchasing with SNAP.

“If you are looking for a high-quality turkey for your family’s meal, make sure to order one of our turkeys from the Lewis Family,” said Vendor Manager, Victoria White, “I have had them before, and there is quite the difference compared to frozen birds.”
