In celebration of the season we have some last-minute turkey tips for you. The most convenient places in Georgetown to pick up your dinner’s centerpiece are: Dean & Deluca, for a gourmet choice; Whole Foods, with several organic selections; and Safeway, which brings you a bargain bird.
Dean & Deluca offers up its Heritage Turkey from the Good Shepherd Turkey Ranch, where breeds that are free-range, vegetarian and antibiotic free are raised. The turkeys are sold frozen at $11 per pound and range from eight to 25 pounds.
Whole Foods carries several varieties of turkeys, including organic ($3.99 per pound), kosher ($3.49 per pound), free range ($2.49 per pound), Heirloom ($3.49 per pound) and brined ($2.79 per pound). Size varies.
For store members, Safeway is selling eight to 25 pound turkeys at 58 cents per pound with an additional $25 purchase. Go to WeeklySpecials.Safeway.com for more information and for more savings.
