It’s no secret that the upcoming holiday requires quite a heavy lift in the kitchen. Let’s simplify this year with help from local North Fork markets and caterers allowing you to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with loved ones. From whole turkeys and hams to plenty of side options, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

Lombardi’s Love Lane Market

In addition to their standard catering offers, Lombardi’s Love Lane Market is offering full Thanksgiving dinner packages, with two options for serving 8-10 people or 12 people. You’ll get the turkey, the classics such as spiral ham and cranberry sauce, plus salad and multiple sides to choose from.
