Welcome to Sam’s Corner! We created this space so you can get the latest scoop–tricks and tips, news and announcements– about everything going on at Sam’s Italian Market.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away??? Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays, which should come as no surprise as it focuses on two things we at Sam’s love more than anything else: family and food. Food with family? Nothing better…
Let Sam’s help with your Thanksgiving. We can help a little (providing excellent, fresh turkeys) or a lot (providing a premade meal).
- The center of almost everyone’s Thanksgiving plate? Turkeys. Did you know that ours are from Loag’s Corner Turkey Farm, located about 40 miles from our store? The Loag’s’ family has been raising turkeys for over 30 years. Their turkeys are always fresh, never frozen and all natural, without any antibiotics or additives. The last day to order turkeys is November 11. Of course, we will have turkeys on hand, but to guarantee you get one, we recommend ordering ahead.
- For those of you who prefer to let Sam’s make your dinner, you can order our dinners up until November 16th. Our dinners feed 8-10 guests and include all the fixins to make your holiday stress-free, so you can spend less time at the stove and more time with your loved ones. Click here to see the full menu. Note, we are closed Thanksgiving Day so meals must be picked up Wednesday and reheated on Thanksgiving Day.
- By the way… did you know that some companies buy our Thanksgiving meals for their employees during the week leading up to the holiday to show them how thankful they are?
- We make all of our pies and desserts in-house. We offer everything from traditional pumpkin to Grandma’s Apple to mince meat Pies. The last day to order desserts is 11/18. See our list of pies here.
