Thanksgiving at Eataly Toronto

thanksgiving turkey

This September, get a jump on your Thanksgiving to-do list: pre-order an all-natural, humanely-raised turkey from our regional farms, then plan the rest of your menu with platters of salumi and formaggi, ready-to-heat sides, homemade desserts, and more!


At Eataly, we give thanks every day for bountiful harvests and fresh, fair ingredients. We believe the best way to celebrate La Festa del Ringraziamento is a high-quality meal shared with family and friends. Find all your Thanksgiving must-haves to prepare a holiday feast, from responsibly-raised Ontario heritage turkeys to our curated boards of Italian cheeses and cured meats, to our fresh, housemade pastries baked at La Pasticceria.

Our turkeys are heirloom and organic, raised humanely on a special diet, so that you can bring the same Italian quality and care to your Thanksgiving table. We carefully sourced our birds from just two small-scale farms that follow the Eataly philosophy of good, clean, and fair. Every step taken ensures that the finished product on your Thanksgiving table is of the utmost quality and fullest flavour.

VG MEATS | Norfolk County, Ontario
Heritage Pasture-Raised Turkeys
$17.38 per kilogram

VG Meats is a family-owned company that has been raising high-quality meat since the 1970s. Started by previous generations and now run by four brothers, VG Meats farms are found in Norfolk County, Ontario. These large white turkeys are raised on grass pastures that are growing in regenerating soils, fresh air, and sunlight. The birds spend their days foraging and also have access to free choice, non-GMO feed.

WOODWARD MEATS | Southern Ontario
Huron County Turkey
$15.18 per kilogram

These turkeys sourced from Ontario’s Woodward Meat Purveyors are grown with care in Southwestern Ontario by second-generation turkey farmers. The birds enjoy an all-grain diet with added minerals and vitamins to ensure balanced nutrition, and steroid, and hormone-free.

Contact our Guest Relations team at (437) 374-0250 or email to place your order. You can also stop by the Guest Relations desk in our store. All pre-orders must be placed by October 6 at 8 p.m. Pre-orders will be available for pick-up October 8, 9, and 10 at Eataly, and we will confirm your date along with your order.

Start off the festivities with antipasti of salumi and formaggi! Our expert cheesemongers handcraft each platter with care, selecting on the best cheeses, salumi, condiments, and antipasti for crowds big to small.

Complete your Thanksgiving menu with our selection of ready-to-heat sides like traditional stuffing made with our house-baked bread, safe, soffrito and roasted poultry stock, or Gnocchi al Pomodoro. What else will you find? Think: high-quality ingredients like freshly baked bread, housemade pasta, decadent seafood platters from our local partner, Diana’s Seafood, and more.

For dessert, pre-order our Tiramisù della NonnaPasticcini (mini pastries), and housemade Crostata di Mele for an Italian take on apple pie, or the Torta alla Millefoglie e Gianduja, a flaky Napolean layered with chocolate hazelnut cream, for something on the nuttier side.

After you pre-order your bird, check out our delicious recipes for roast turkey and mushroom-sausage stuffing!
