Whet your guests' appetites with any of these simple-but-delicious hors d'oeuvres: whole Castelvetrano olives, organic dried fruit & nuts, crunchy cassava crackers, olive oil and sel gris flatbread crackers, or choose from a selection of our salsas and dips.

Create a diverse and decadent cheese plate with any of our traditionally-made cheeses or dairy-alternative cheeses.

Veggies

Thanksgiving Essentials

Add the perfect accompaniments to your holiday meal, like fresh organic green beans, sweet potatoes, kale, Brussels sprouts, fresh cranberries, Satsuma mandarins, Maitake or Chanterelle mushrooms...the list goes on. We've also added many new items to our collection of farm products that will enhance your veggies, salads and side dishes.

Thanksgiving Essentials

This special oil from Flatlands Oil & Mill combines the unique citrus flavor of Yuzu and the traditional California Mission olive. The result is a smooth, floral oil with hints of pine, hops and green tea. Its wonderful flavor brightens salad dressings and is perfect for dipping freshly-baked bread. Look for the many other olive oils and vinegars we carry.

We also have stocks & broths, maple syrups, nutritional yeast and other salts & spices, as well as organic bread crumbs & Italian nut crumbs to complement your veggie dishes.

Rice, Grains & Pastas

Thanksgiving Essentials

Grains and pastas add a nutty, healthy addition to your Thanksgiving spread. We offer organic red cornmeal, organic farro, rainbow quinoa, golden couscous and variety of tasty and unique pastas.

Thanksgiving Essentials


This locally grown organic wild rice has a distinctive nutty flavor and chewy texture that pairs well with the earthy, autumnal flavors and colors of harvest-time foods. For a subtler flavor, some like to blend wild rice with brown rice in stuffing and pilafs. Wild rice bursts open when it’s cooked, so you can tell at a glance when it’s done.

Main Course

Thanksgiving Essentials

Pasture-Raised Turkey
We are thrilled to offer Pasture-Raised Turkey from Ferndale Farms. They have been raising turkeys on their family farm since 1939. Ferndale turkeys are grown in harmony with the seasons. They are pasture-raised during the summer months and grown in a free-range environment during the winter months. Because of this artful approach, Ferndale produces slow-growing turkeys with robust immune systems that don't need any antibiotics or other unnatural additives or interventions. You will absolutely be able to taste the difference!

Try roasting your turkey (ham, chicken, fish, and more) in a unique and innovative, parchment bag.   The unbleached totally chlorine-free grease-proof paper seals in the juices to create delicious, tender, and moist meat.


Thanksgiving Essentials

Turkey Alternatives
As a centerpiece, appetizer or even sliced in a sandwich with your Thanksgiving leftovers, this Vegan Celebration Roast is perfect choice for your holiday meal. Field Roast starts this vegetarian roast with a rich and savory sausage-style stuffing made from Field Roast grain "meat," fresh-cut butternut squash, mushrooms and Granny Smith apples seasoned with a blend of rosemary, thyme and sage. Then the stuffing is surrounded with their most luxurious grain meat seasoned with rubbed sage, garlic and lemon juice.

Some of our other, less traditional Thanksgiving meat offerings include whole, free-range duck, organic whole fryer chicken, pork sirloin roast, lamb or even seafood.
