Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Lucky for us Greenlakers, we don’t have to go too far for our turkeys, pumpkin pies, cranberry sauce and all the special fixings. Whether you want to ditch the apron and impress guests with chef-prepared pies or find a unique turkey to roast at home, we have a guide for you. Consider the following:

Pumpkin Treats at Jodee’s Desserts
Green Lake’s favorite “un-bakery” is in the Pumpkin Spirit this month! Pop by Jodee’s Desserts for raw, fresh-blended organic pumpkin spice smoothies, pie cups, slices, whole pies, truffles and macaroons. In fact, stop by now between Nov. 21 and enter to win a free, delicious Pumpkin Cream’ Pie. For more info, visit

Spiced Fruit Pies at The Butcher & Baker
Green Lake’s Butcher & Baker café and artisan bakery will offer seasonal treats including spiced apple, pumpkin, pecan, peach and blueberry pies. If pie doesn’t suit your sweet tooth, try a cheesecake or B&B’s classic Ooey Gooey cookies or orange cranberry scones. For more info, visit

Holiday Meats at PCC
Both Green Lake locations are going all out for the holidays, with everything but the kitchen sink for your holiday meal.  We highly recommend the meat department, where you can reserve your roast-at-home meats including turkey, rib roast, ham, lamb and duck. Orders can be made in-store or by phone and reservations are required. For more info, visit

Mexican Chocolate Mousse at A la Mode Pies
Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without pie. Phinney Ridge’s A La Mode Pies is serving up seasonal favorites in the form of their 9-inch, made-to-order organic pies. Explore fun flavors like Mexican Chocolate Mousse, Apple & Ginger Pear or Chocolate-Caramel Pecan. Pre-orders for Thanksgiving must be received by Monday, Nov. 24 at noon.  For more info, visit

Turkeys, Rolls & Fancy Sides at Ken’s Market
Greenwood’s Ken’s Market has Thanksgiving down to a T. Pre-order a non-GMO, free-range turkey or pick up a fancy holiday side dish like orange-cranberry sauce, honey-lime sweet potatoes, roasted brussel sprouts or freshly baked rolls. For more info, visit
