Whole Foods Market Turkey Prices 2014

Check out my 2015 Whole Foods Market Turkey Price Guide!

Are you interested in buying your turkey from Whole Foods Market? Wondering if it will fit into your budget this year? Today I am talking all things turkey from “America’s Healthiest Grocery Store”.

Whole Foods Market sells a wide range of turkeys. The first thing you need to know is that the company is split up into 11 regions (12 if you count the United Kingdom). What is available in each region is different. Certain regions out west have a ton more choices than regions further east. Check out this map to find your region.

All turkeys sold at Whole Foods Market are fresh. I did not find any frozen turkeys listed online. The cheapest prices in each region are typically $2.49/lb which gets you a fresh, quality turkey . Some regions carry heirloom or heritage turkeys, which come at a steeper price but will give you a more authentic Thanksgiving experience. These birds were descended from the first birds found in the United States. That would be a great story to tell right at the dinner table! Most regions carry a kosher option. This turkey has been certified kosher by Rabbi Babad and the Orthodox Union. In all regions you will be able to find a turkey breast for those looking for just the white meat as well as a certified organic option. Some regions carry turkeys that have been certifited non-GMO by the non-GMO Project.

All turkeys sold at Whole Foods have to meet these following standards:

5-Step® Animal Welfare rated
No antibiotics
No animal by-products in their feed
No Added solutions or injections
No added growth hormones

Organic Turkeys
All Whole Foods store carry organic turkeys but not all turkeys at Whole Foods are organic. To learn more about organic turkeys, check out my post What is an Organic Turkey?

Selection and Prices
The selection should be identical at all stores in a region. However you will see some special pricing at certain locations. For example, the store in Detroit, Michigan has a fresh turkey for $1.99/lb cheaper than the standard lowest price. I would assume that the prices you see for your region would be the max your going to see in that region. Still check with your specific store.
