There’s nothing more satisfying than knowing that everything is ready for our Thanksgiving meal. It takes so much time to prepare and I’d rather be playing with the kids instead. Luckily, the Fresh Market holiday offerings are going to save me. I can order things ahead of time, pick them up and impress my guests. If you can heat-and-eat our Thanksgiving meal, I’m totally OK with that! The holidays are about family, so why not let The Fresh Market help you?
We ordered the Thanksgiving box from Fresh Market for the first time when our family was having a difficult time during the holiday season and nobody could cook. The process of ordering your Thanksgiving meal from Fresh Market is seamless and easy.
Order ahead of time, and customize your Thanksgiving meal to your family’s needs. Depending on what you pick, will determine the price (more on that below). Shoppers can order a whole turkey to take home and roast themselves or buy one that is already cooked.
I order the turkey to take home and roast, and make the side dishes myself. If you want everything prepared for you – order it fully cooked with side dishes included. My only gripe is the size of the turkey. We end up buying thick turkey slices from their deli department because the roasting turkey is on the smaller side.
Determine how many people you’re serving for Thanksgiving before placing your order. On Thanksgiving morning, or the day before, you can pick up your order! It’s easy, not a big line and very organized.

Wondering which one is best for your family? We ordered the Ultimate Thanksgiving Meal one year and found out we had no leftovers after Thanksgiving day. If you’re a fan of leftovers, especially turkey, I find that they underestimate the portions. Some people order multiple dinners, so they can have leftovers for the weekend.
Fresh Market Thanksgiving Dinners That Aren’t Turkey
Build the holiday meal around a show-stopping main course! A yuletide favorite, standing rib roast makes for a great centerpiece. The Fresh Market carries USDA prime and premium choice beef, which accounts for the highest-quality beef in the country. Standing rib roast is tender, juicy and available for pre-order.
Create a truly memorable meal with seasoned or unseasoned French cut rack of lamb. Free-range, antibiotic and hormone-free, and fed a 100 percent vegetable diet, The Fresh Market rack of lamb makes for a culinary masterpiece. Spiral-sliced honey ham is another seasonal favorite—doubled-glazed with honey and brown sugar and smoked over hickory hardwood for sweet and savory flavor. Order ahead to ensure these popular dishes make it on the table this holiday season!
An extraordinary entrée, easy-to-cook, premium choice or USDA prime beef tenderloin is a delicious way to impress a hungry crowd without spending hours in the kitchen. Experienced butchers at The Fresh Market are ready to trim and tie the whole tenderloin, or slice it into filet mignon steaks according to guests’ preferences.
Savory Seafood At Fresh Market
Lighten up the holiday menu with a flavorful catch! Impress guests with wild-caught lobster tails, fresh from the cold waters of the North Atlantic.
