November must be flying by because next week brings everyone’s favorite turkey day. Thanksgiving: a food-focused holiday, a feast for foodies and a day honoring gratitude. For residents and visitors to Jackson, the holiday also marks the eagerly anticipated opening of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for the winter season. The aeriel tram opens Thanksgiving day, with the chairlifts to follow on Saturday, November 24. But before we break out our boot warmers, we found some options for simplifying your Thanksgiving meal this year.
Aspens Market & Pearl Street Market
For all your charcuterie and artisan platter needs visit Pearl Street Market, or Aspens Market on the West Bank. Boards and platters include poached shrimp, garden veggies with dip, smoked salmon, meat and cheese platters, and more. Call 307-733-1300 for Pearl Street Market or 307-200-6140 for Aspens Market.
Bovine & Swine
Bovine & Swine, our local craft meat company focused on the pursuit of making the best cured meat products with traditional techniques and high-quality ingredients, wants to make your turkey dinner easier to prepare. Pre-order a whole smoked or cured 14-16 pound turkey for $7 per pound.

To place your order, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 307-734-0201.
I don’t know about you, but we sure do miss picking up loaves of bread from In Season at the summer farmers markets. Luckily, you can complete your Thanksgiving spread with a fresh loaf by stopping by the Thanksgiving bake sale they’re having at Healthy Being Juicery & Cafe. Wednesday, November 23 (the day before Thanksgiving), swing by the cafe between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. to buy bread and guilt-free desserts for your holiday party.
Jackson Whole Grocer
The Whole Grocer is making your Thanksgiving pre-ordering easy with a simple, easy-to-use online system. From their online menu you can choose your entree, stuffing, sides, salad and desserts. Will you go with the traditional herb stuffing or the cornbread? We’d like to try the roasted Brussels sprouts with cranberries and walnuts or the butternut squash soup. End your meal with a traditional apple pie or a pumpkin cheesecake. See all the options, HERE. Place your order online by clicking HERE. Orders must be placed by Sunday, November 17.
Start with a Lucky’s party platter of charcuterie, cheese and fruit or crudites. When it comes to a bird from Lucky’s, their Lucky’s brand turkeys are fresh, never frozen, and raised on family farms. Their Lucky’s brand, antibiotic-free turkey goes for $1.48 per pound or their organic, free-range turkeys are $3.88 per pound. If you’re looking to take a break this Thanksgiving, get the full holiday meal, including an oven-roasted turkey and all the fixings, for $79.99. This meal feeds 4-6 guests. Holiday ordering is made easy online HERE, or visit the holiday table in-store and talk turkey with the team.
Moe’s Original Bar B Que
You can let the folks at Moe’s take care of the main event or the whole event with all of their catering options this holiday season. At Moe’s, it’s easy to reserve smoked turkeys and hams for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Pans of sides are available for accompaniment: sweet potato casserole, cornbread stuffing, collard greens and more. Call 307-622-1663 for more details and to place your order.
Satisfy your sweet tooth this Thanksgiving with treats from Persephone Bakery. Thanksgiving pies, rolls and bake-at-home treats are available for pre-order on their site, HERE.
