Where to Get Your Turkey

Cooking your own turkey this year? You can order whole turkey from local grocery stores, such as the Whole Foods Market in Tarzana, any of our community’s Ralph’s locations, and Gelson’s Markets in Encino. Be sure to order as early as possible so that you can guarantee you get a turkey!

There are a lot of great ordering options here in Encino. Claudine’s Kitchen and Bakeshop offers a variety of Thanksgiving sides and pies for customers to choose from.
