Caldwell Market Place | 5 Park Avenue

Uncooked or Cooked

This Caldwell butcher shop serves up Bell + Evans fresh turkeys — and it even provides options for brining, French butter, or herb seasoning the bird for you. The birds available are at market price and range from 8 to 30 pounds — or you can opt to get cooked turkey breast for $15.99/lb (which averages 5-8 pounds). For those who want to opt to have the turkey cooked, there’s a $30 cooking charge — and the team encourages booking early for this since they’re limiting the number of turkeys they cook.
