Every Thanksgiving, we’re thankful to live in Seattle, where terms like “artisan” and “local” are as common as “coffee” and “rain.” We’ve rounded up some of our city’s best independent markets and specialty shops that can help you create a bountiful holiday table that fits your family’s style. These area bakeshops, butchers and cheesemongers will take your Turkey Day menu way beyond canned cranberry sauce and gloppy green bean casserole. Read on for our picks!

Smith Brothers Farms

In addition to their uber popular dairy home delivery service, Smith Brothers Farms offers farm fresh Thanksgiving turkeys. The hormone, antibiotic-free birds are sourced from family-run Green Valley Meats in Auburn. Customers can order turkeys online and plan for delivery during Thanksgiving week. You can add pumpkin cookie dough or eggnog to your order, too.
