With Two Weeks to Go, Here’s How to Buy a Thanksgiving Turkey from the Greenmarket

Dig this helpful guide from the folks at GrowNYC, the non-profit group behind city Greenmarkets. It’s a list of which of their farmers citywide are selling turkeys, plus how to order them and where you can pick them up. Don’t forget the butchers at Dickson’s Farmstead Meats in Chelsea Market or your mail-order friends at Fleisher’s and Heritage Foods USA. (The latter will probably let you order from their new Heritage Meat Shop in Essex Market, too.)

On Sept. 27, Sothebys Puts Heirloom Kale, Squash and Cabbage up for Auction at The Art of Farming

By all accounts, the first-ever live auction of Tri-state heirloom vegetables (and a few proteins) at the house of Sothebys last year was a smashing success. Farmers mingled with the city’s fabulous; local crops were put on the block; and the proceeds went to help support agriculture and education programs with GrowNYC and The Sylvia Center.
