We asked our members recently about where to find the best turkey, goose and poultry in Almere for the upcoming festive season – and here’s their best picks for you!
Hans v.d. Bor – On the market in Stad (Wednesday and Saturdays) (turkey and goose)
” I got a big turkey from the market in Stad last year” – Michelle
“I always get it from Hans in the Market” – Christina
“Tromp is awesome!” – Tanja
“We got turkey legs and rollade here last year (also kipfilet) and it’s great quality too!” – Brenda
“There’s a great wholesale butcher in Lelystad, who’s dirt cheap and has the best pork belly! They do turkey too.” – Maarten
Don’t forget, you can still get turkeys from Albert Heijn and from Jumbo (frozen), and closer to Christmas you can also get them fresh in the supermarkets!
