Forkin' Frisco: Thanksgiving grocery shopping in the city
Thanksgiving means copious amounts of turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. And if you’re one of the brave souls preparing Thanksgiving dinner, it also means a copious amount of groceries. Fear not! The vendors on this list will be more than happy to help you assemble all the supplies needed for a spectacular feast.
Avedano’s Holly Park Market
235 Cortland Ave
Avedano’s offers a wide selection of everything from poultry to hard to find cured meats and salami. They select producers who are committed to raising organic and sustainable products.
Alemany Farmers Market
100 Alemany Blvd
If you love the quality and value (not to mention selection) of buying produce directly from the farmer but hate the crowds at the Ferry Building’s weekly market, take a trip off the beaten path to Alemany.
314 Church St
Sick of pumpkin pie? How about a Mexican chocolate pecan pie instead? Or maybe a lemon butter pie instead? If you’re looking for non-traditional Thanksgiving flavors, Chile Pies is the place to go. And yes, they do also have pumpkin.
1745 Folsom St
Thanksgiving can be alienating if you don’t eat meat or animal products. So whether you’re a vegan or just cooking for one, head to Rainbow for all of your tofurkey needs.
