Whether you’re hosting a Friendsgiving or a Thanksgiving Day feast, Donna Kerr Group has compiled some of our favorites in the DC metro area. Read on for all the resources you need to host the festivities this season while supporting local businesses in the process.
When it comes to a beautiful table, fresh flowers simply are a must. Be sure to put your order in from Washington DC’s She Loves Me for a most elegant centerpiece. Park Florist in Takoma Park has some lovely Thanksgiving centerpieces as well.
For the freshest produce, be sure to stop by Montgomery County’s oldest continuous Farmers Market, Bethesda Farm Women’s Co-op. From fresh eggs and vegetables to local crafts and fresh-cut flowers to make your own bouquet, this market serves all your feast prep needs!
Don’t let your guests go hungry before the feast! All Aboard has got you covered with the most beautiful charcuterie boards. Prefer to curate a grazing experience yourself? All Aboard also features classes to perfect the art of the cheeseboard.
Looking for the best turkey in town? Check out The Organic Butcher in McLean. With a wide variety of options for your dinner, this stop is a must when it comes to the perfect feast. Looking for meat-free alternatives? Not Your Average Joe’s in Bethesda features some spectacular take-home, vegan-friendly options as well as a make-your-own-sangria kit for cocktails with a festive touch.
For a great wine selection, consider Maple Beer and Wine. With an added bonus of same-day delivery, this local favorite is the perfect place for a wide variety of beer and wine options.
Of course, no Thanksgiving would be complete without a pie (or two!) and Sunflower Bakery in North Bethesda bakes some of the most delicious in all of MoCo! You can also order pies from MOM (Mom's Organic Market) in Rockville, with vegan and gluten-free options.
