Celebrating Thanksgiving Away from Home

Published on 9 November 2019

Do you like to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family and newly made friends away from home? Whether it will be a traditional dinner or not, you might wonder where to buy the ingredients to prepare a delicious meal.

Did you find out that you left the necessary pots and pans and utensils as a turkey baster at home? Read on to know where in Haarlem you can go to buy it.

I will share addresses from the Haarlem Area where you find everything to make your Thanksgiving dinner a dinner which will give you the feeling of being home away from home.

Where to buy your turkey?

You can put an order everywhere in town. As a local, I like to share my favorite addresses. Two of them are just minutes away from the city center but really worth mentioning. Quality guaranteed if you buy your turkey here.

Overveense Vleeshouwerij De Vries

This small family business was founded more than hundred years ago. Nowadays they serve products to lots of restaurants in town.

The turkeys delivered by De Vries come from France, therefore put an order at least two weeks in advance.

To order the turkey, call 023 5277485 between 8.30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Wals Poelier, Bloemendaalseweg 48, 2061 CL Bloemendaal.

The first generation opened the shop in 1934. Nowadays the shop is led by the daughter of the former owner. She and her team, women only, are experts who love to serve the clients.

Again, put an order in time to make sure you’ll have everything to prepare your Thanksgiving dinner.

 

Van Leeuwen Vleesch, Kleverparkweg 8, 2023 CE Haarlem.

This butcher shop has also a good reputation in the Haarlem area. Their second butcher shop can be found in Overveen.

Trimmings

It shouldn’t be a problem to find the trimmings which come along with the Thanksgiving dinner. Cranberries, sprouts, green beans, you’ll find it easily. You can go to the greengrocer or the supermarkets in town.

Wondering where to buy marshmallows and pumpkin pie filling?

I will share a couple of my favorite addresses in town with you.

Food Market Mabrouk, Tuchthuisstraat 2, 2011 XK Haarlem.

Mabrouk has it almost all if not all. Cranberries, brussels sprouts, beans.

You’ll find Mabrouk in the city center of Haarlem.

 

A Taste Of Home, Gedempte Oude Gracht 42, 2011 GS Haarlem.

At Taste of Home you will definitely find Libby’s Pumpkin Pie amongst others.

Supermarkets Albert Heijn, Vomar Voordeelmarkt, Dekamarkt

What can you find in the Dutch supermarkets? Next to brussels sprouts and green beans you can find cranberry sauce and marshmallows.

 

Pots, Pans and More

Once you have decided to cook  but you realize you don’t have the necessary equipment like a roasting pan, a thermometer or a turkey baster, I have some addresses where you can buy this cooking equipment.

De Huismuis, Warmoesstraat 15, 2011 HN Haarlem.

De Huismuis, founded in 1963, is a true paradise for the real cook fans. You’ll definitely find the right cooking equipment to prepare your Thanksgiving dinner.

Voss, Hoofdstraat 228, 2071 EP Santpoort – Noord.

Not that far away from Haarlem, you’ll find Voss.

Again a paradise for the real cook fans who only want to use highly qualitative pots, pans and other cooking equipment.
