If the prospect of roasting a turkey in the oven just doesn't appeal this holiday or your kitchen's in disarray, local grocery stores offer variety and ease at Thanksgiving.
Want free-range? Organic and free-range? Chinese-style turkey? Need sides and pie? They've got your Thanksgiving table covered.
Alas, it's too late for Dittmer's smoked turkeys, or A.G. Ferrari's turkey with glorious sides, but there's still time to order via Whole Foods, 99 Ranch, and in nearby Andronico's.
