R.G. Hummer Meats & Cheese 

RG Hummers — now located in both the Broad Street Market and the West Shore Farmers Market — is offering Thanksgiving Turkey Pre-Orders. All-natural, hormone-free, locally raised in Lancaster County can be the centerpiece of your table this Thanksgiving

Call to order: 717-232-4150 (Broad Street Market) or 717-278-7669 (West Shore Farmers Market)


MoMo BBQ Co. 

Forget a fried turkey; you haven’t lived until you’ve had a smoked turkey. MoMo BBQ Co., located in Mechanicsburg, is offering everything from whole smoked turkeys, to full dinner, to just the sides this Thanksgiving holiday.

MoMo’s Smoked Turkeys are dry rubbed with a blend inspired by LBJ’s personal pitmaster, Walter Jetton (first to BBQ on the White House lawn!), then injected with an apple cider brine and stuffed with apples, onions, and oranges and smoked for 8-12 hours with Sugar Maple and Pecan wood. Simply pick up and reheat; MoMo’s has done all the work for you!

Smoked Turkeys range from $90-$110 depending on size.

Full dinners (serve either 8-12 people or 14-18 people) – include Smoked Turkey, mashed potatoes, cornbread dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, sweet cream corn, and green bean casserole, and pie. View the menu.

All sides are available a la cart by the pint ($7) or quart ($12).

Order deadline – 4 p.m., Nov. 20; Pick-up Nov. 24.  

Call to order and schedule pick-up: 717-550-7995


Cornerstone Coffeehouse

If the turkey is covered (or you’re skipping it altogether!), Cornerstone Coffeehouse has everything you need for Thanksgiving sides and desserts.

With houseguests in tow, you’ll want to grab a Quiche, either Butternut Squash, Bacon & Cheddar or Roasted Vegetables with Parmesan & Herbs. Each serves 8-10 people. Breakfast is ready.

Or, start dinner off with a vegetarian and gluten-free Butternut Squash Soup or Pumpkin Bisque (available by the pint or quart).

May as well knock out dessert while you’re picking up. I highly recommend Cornerstone’s Pumpkin Roll — or, choose a more traditional Pumpkin or Apple Pie. Each serves 10-12 guests.
