Shop for Thanksgiving Staples at Your Local Trader Joe’s

October 28th, 2014

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and it is easy to fall behind on planning for holiday meals and social gatherings.

If you get a jump on getting stocked up with the things you’ll need to make your Thanksgiving meal a success, you won’t be scrambling at the last minute to dash to the store for forgotten ingredients and other food items.

  • Potatoes, sweet potatoes, and different varieties of squash
  • Cream and milk
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Sugar, brown sugar, baking soda and powder, and flour
  • Cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and vanilla
  • Onions and garlic
  • Fresh herbs (oregano, basil, parsley, thyme, etc.)
  • Beverages (wine, coffee, tea, soft drinks)
  • Cranberries (fresh or canned)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Turkey (the most important ingredient!)
