The holidays are about family and friends. About connection and community. And whether you’re looking to do the cooking yourself, or want a little assist along the way, Bi-Rite Markets are here to help make your holiday season incredibly delicious. 

LET'S TALK TURKEY!

Bi-Rite Market is the only place in San Francisco offering Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch Heritage Turkeys and the exclusive Ferndale Farms Broad Breasted Turkey.

Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch Heritage Turkeys are arguably the best tasting and most sustainably raised turkey available. These birds are direct descendants from a wild flock discovered and nurtured by legendary rancher, Frank Reese, who single-handedly revitalized these heritage breeds 60 years ago and has been raising them on a vast Kansas prairie ever since. These turkeys are anatomically different than broad breasted turkeys, so they both taste and cook differently. The breasts are a bit smaller than a broad breasted turkey, but they’re incredibly rich and full of flavor.

We discovered the responsibly raised Ferndale Farms broad breasted turkeys last year and all agreed they were our best find in years! The Peterson Family has been pasture-raising their turkeys in Minnesota’s fertile Little Canon River Valley since 1939. These amazingly delicious turkeys are perfect for those who enjoy a larger quantity of white meat, yet also remain conscious of good farming practices, and want to support a multi-generational family’s pursuit of land stewardship and regenerative agriculture practices.

Showstoppers on the Side

Showstoppers on the Side

If your guests look forward to the side dishes as much (or more!) than the turkey, our full menu of housemade, delicious sides are an excellent way to delight everyone. From the stuffing (traditional or sourdough of course) to the mashed potatoes (traditional or bourbon sweet potato), to the cider-glazed Brussels sprouts, and the new Romanesco and cauliflower salad, your table will be full of delicious, lovingly prepared food. Oh, and if you want to have a plant-based holiday dinner, try pairing those sides with the new Royal Corona Bean, Kale and Fennel Cassoulet, served in its own reusable, Spanish terra cotta cazuela.

The Great Pie Debate

The Great Pie Debate

Pumpkin or pecan? Pecan or apple? Chocolate Bourbon Mousse?! If you must choose just one, you won’t go wrong with a handmade pie from the bakers at Bi-Rite Creamery. Top off your slice with freshly whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream to put the final touch on an amazing holiday feast.

One Meal Becomes Many

For families struggling with food security, a bountiful meal isn’t always a part of their holiday celebration. At Bi-Rite, we believe good food should be a staple for everyone. That’s why we work with the following community partners to distribute healthy holiday meals to those in need. In fact, witnessing and supporting the incredible impact of these organizations has become our favorite part of the holidays.

Free the Need: Four Bay Area families started Free the Need 30 years ago to spread the “surplus” they felt in their own lives. This all-volunteer organization has since grown to distribute over 200,000 pounds of fresh, healthy food each year. Their Thanksgiving Food Giveaway ensures that more than 350 San Francisco families can cook and share a delicious holiday meal –and all the love that comes with it.

Gobble Gobble Give: Each Thanksgiving, San Francisco Gobble Gobble Give volunteers come together at 111 Minna Gallery to gather dry goods, box warm food, and walk the city streets to hand out care packages and bring a bit of festive holiday spirit to the city’s unhoused individuals and families. Every year the program grows and they’re now able to feed more than 1,000 people each holiday.
