We Do the Work, You Take the Credit

At Whole Foods Market®, you can order everything from fresh, ready-to-cook turkeys to dinner rolls to a fully prepared holiday meal. Our Heat & Serve Holiday Meal for Four is just $59.99 and includes all the Thanksgiving hits – turkey breast, cranberry relish, mashed potatoes, gravy and stuffing.*

We’re also the place for your party trays, appetizers, pies, desserts and an exceptional selection of side dishes – including vegan and gluten-free options.

Plus, everything on our menu is made with the same high-quality ingredients and standards that apply in our aisles, including no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives, and no hydrogenated fats.

All of that deliciousness can be reserved online or with the help of a Team Member at our in-store Holiday Tables, and it’ll be ready to pick up at your local store.

*The exact items included in the Heat & Serve Holiday Meal for Four could change based on availability. Check the details on your store’s online ordering page or speak to someone at their holiday table. 

The Meat of the Matter

All the turkeys we sell – including heritage, organic, kosher and brined – are required to meet our strict quality standards including being 5-Step™ Animal Welfare rated, raised without antibiotics or added growth hormones**, no animal by-products in their feed, and no added solutions or injections (except for pure sea-salt solutions for our turkeys labeled "brined").

** Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising turkeys.

Feed Four More

In addition to making it easy to order your best Thanksgiving meal, we’re also making it easy give back. Many of our stores are partnering with local organizations for a community food drive. If your store is participating, you can donate online to help give meals to a local family when you order your meal. 

Thank Goodness for Giveaways!

We want to help you spend less time stressing and more time celebrating, so we’re offering our shoppers a chance to win a $250 Whole Foods Market gift card that you can use to purchase your Thanksgiving meal.

You can use it to order the whole meal from our online ordering site. Or buy all of the ingredients to cook the turkey and fixings yourself. Or maybe you’d choose to buy some and make some. All of those options work!

In the comments below, tell us how this gift card will help you create your best Thanksgiving. Let us know by November 20 and we’ll pick five lucky winners at random.
