Huber’s Butchery (frozen turkey)

Place your order online and have it delivered or just head down to their store at Dempsey Hill to pick it up.

Ryan’s Grocery (frozen turkey)
Looking to just get a simple roasted turkey? Consider this premium turkey by Norbest that has been marinated with gluten-free seasoning and brined in gluten-free turkey broth (no additional oil, sugar or MSG added). All that’s left for you to do is place the turkey in the oven and follow the instructions on the packaging. Doesn’t come any easier than this if you are intending to roast your own turkey for the family feasting!

These turkeys are raised on a wholesome low-fat vegetarian diet of quality grains and soybeans milled, free of hormones and gluten-free.
Going for a little something out of the ordinary? Give Ryan’s Grocery’s boneless Turducken a try! As its name suggest, this is a festive mammoth that consists of a chicken in a duck, that is in a turkey.
