The majority of your customers will be celebrating Thanksgiving, whether they are cooking and hosting themselves, or joining a gathering and bringing a dish. Did you know? Americans will eat an estimated 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving Day.
Turkey wasn’t on the menu at the first Thanksgiving. Venison, duck, goose, oysters, lobster, eel, and fish were likely served, alongside pumpkins and cranberries (but no pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce!).
Remind customers what fresh produce items are in season when so when they head to the grocery store they can not only save you money but also they will be enjoying fruits and veggies at their peak!
