Where To Buy Locally-Raised Turkeys In Washington, D.C.

Forget that bird on the Giant Food shelf – there’s nothing like a locally-grown, humanely-raised turkey to serve on your 1331 Maryland table on Thanksgiving. With plenty of turkey farms and artisan markets nearby, it’s easy to find just that prior to the big day.

Place your order now for a locally-raised or heritage turkey, which has better flavor and richer meat than a typical Butterball turkey. It will have all of your guests wondering just where you got your cooking skills from.

BlackSalt, located at 4883 MacArthur Blvd NW, Washington, D.C. which is 14 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is both a restaurant and market that has been sourcing fresh fare from around the world since 2005.

During Thanksgiving season, BlackSalt offers Murray’s Turkeys from Pennsylvania, which can be ordered fresh or ready-to-roast with all of the brining and seasoning done for you. Here, you can also find Turkey Day sides and appetizers, too, keeping your work on Nov. 23 to a minimum.

Stachowski’s Market, located at 1425 28th St NW, Washington, D.C. which is 13 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a chef-driven butcher shop, deli and grocery store.
