Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving at your home or bringing something to see family, these local businesses have got you covered. From sides to turkey to a full-service, catered affair, there’s something for everyone. You get to take all the credit, but don’t wait long to place your orders — deadlines are fast approaching.

Lombardi’s Love Lane Market

Lombardi’s food is not only delicious but also beautiful, thanks to owner Lauren Lombardi’s keen eye for plating. In addition to traditional Thanksgiving fare, Lombardi’s offers an extensive selection of hors d’ oeuvres and appetizer platters.

Goodale Farms

If you love cooking yourself but hate shopping around the holidays, Goodale is the place for you. The farm offers pickup options that include their farm-raised turkey, assorted local vegetables that you can prep any way you like, and even fresh pie.

Grace & Grit

Known for their pop-up restaurant hours and incredible full-service catered events, Grace & Grit also offers pre-ordered Thanksgiving turkeys and sides, as well as the ever-popular full meal that serves eight-10 people. You simply warm it in the oven and enjoy. In the spirit of giving back, GG offers the option of sponsoring a full meal for a family in need, as well.

Art of Eating

Art of Eating may be based in Bridgehampton, but so many of their items feature local North Fork farms. They also offer additional items for “the weekend” like vegetable lasagna and assorted cooked meats since we all know that relatives and friends love to make a weekend out of a North Fork holiday.

Modern Snack Bar

We’re talking turnips, and Modern Snack Bar has the best. Parent hack: Just tell the kids they’re mashed potatoes and they just might love them. Enjoy as close to home-cooked as you can with catering from this North Fork staple before they close for the season.

Ali Katz Kitchen

“Everything but the bird” catering means all your sides and desserts are covered. And isn’t that the best part anyway?

Jamesport Sourdough and Coffee Co.

Let’s face it — you can spend the whole day making a beautiful meal from scratch but your kids are still only going to eat bread. Make it the best bread available with a loaf of sourdough. Limited quantity is available for pickup at Sang Lee Farms or Lombardi’s Love Lane Market. Limited pre-orders are available at Main Road Biscuit.

Traditional Thanksgiving fare is available with a twist, like citrus cranberry sauce and burnt basque cheesecake. Make sure to add a pint of fresh whipped cream and say it’s homemade.
