Preparing for a local Thanksgiving spread

Two farmers market events are coming up to help you serve up local fare for Thanksgiving this year:

Portland Farmers Market is giving shoppers two chances to stock up on side dish staples, garnishes, centerpieces and sweets in the week before Thanksgiving.  First is the Thanksgiving FEASTival on Saturday, November 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the market’s downtown location on the South Park Blocks at the PSU campus. Then, for last minute shopping, come to the Thanksgiving Reunion Market on Tuesday, November 20, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., at the market’s Eastbank location, on SE Belmont and 20th.

Both holiday markets will offer an array of fall delights to stock your holiday table—from seasonal mainstays like Brussels sprouts, winter squash, potatoes and mushrooms, to special treats like fresh apples, pumpkins, pears and nuts for making homemade desserts, stuffing and garnishes. Shoppers can also pick up hostess gifts, such as homemade jams, honey, wreaths, bouquets and Northwest wines.

I'm bummed that I waited too long to order a turkey from Kookoolan Farms, and they sold out quick. Any other local turkey growers out there? Or should I just be ordering a Diestel from New Seasons?
