This week we met three different vendors; Godshall’s Poultry, Butcher’s Pantry, and Sweet T’s Bakery, all perfect for your holiday needs.
First up, Godshall’s Poultry, a family owned and operated business that has been around since 1916. Godshall’s has your perfect Thanksgiving Day turkey! They offer a variety of options including a whole turkeys, boneless turkey breast, or a honey cured turkey ham, if you’re looking for something a little different this holiday season.
Next up, Butcher’s Pantry. We met co-owner Beth Esposito, and she told us about some of the amazing Thanksgiving day items they offer starting with the Thanksgiving savory cake. Featuring a layer of stuffing, three layers of turkey, corn, snap beans, topped with mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce this cake is a convenient alternative to your traditional holiday meal preparation.
“Pop it right in the oven for 20 minutes, get it lightly browned and then your done,” Beth tells us.
But, a Thanksgiving meal wouldn’t be complete without a sweet treat to top it all off. That’s why Beth includes a chocolate wishbone with every order. Additionally, Butcher’s Pantry offers a variety of sandwiches, eggrolls, and deep fried turkey bombs.
Lastly, we stopped by Sweet T’s Bakery to check out their delicious deserts. They specialize in sweet potato based deserts, but this year they added a brand new 6″ 7-Up Pound Cake. They also offer sweet potato pie, sweet potato cheesecake, and a variety of other deserts all year round in a variety of sizes.
Be sure to stop by the Reading Terminal Market soon to try some of these amazing items.
