It is November and time to talk turkey. The Market is a great place to get a local turkey. Ernst Farms and John Hochstetler (Our Family Farm - an egg vendor) sell turkeys at the Market. You can also order a turkey from Gary Kunneman (TMZ Farms - the beef buffalo vendor). Ask any of these vendors for order details, but do it soon the order deadline is close.

What is the distinction? Ernst Farms and Our family Farm raise their own turkeys and sell them at the Market as a product they produce. Gary Kunneman can deliver a turkey from another local grower. This does not meet the Market requirement that items sold at the market be produced by the vendor. Therefore he does not sell the turkeys at the Market, but you can place an order with him and arrange delivery or pick-up.

Of course, Gary can sell you beef or buffalo for Thanksgiving or Judy Hannewald (Hannewald Lamb) will sell you a rack of lamb if you prefer that.


  1. the turkeys delivered to market by Gary K. are from which local farm?

  2. If Gary mentioned the Farm name I do not remember it. You can ask him at the Market or Google Gary and TMZ.

    It may not be correct to describe the turkeys as delivered to the Market. Last year I purchased a turkey under similar conditions and the vendor delivered it to my home.
