Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends! Carry on reading for tips on where to buy your turkeys and where to find fun Thanksgiving events in Tel Aviv! 🇺🇲 🦃 🇮🇱 🏈 🥳


Thanksgiving Day, annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. Americans generally believe that their Thanksgiving is modeled on a 1621 harvest feast shared by the English colonists (Pilgrims) of Plymouth and the Wampanoag people. Courtesy of Kerem House – check out their dinner on Thursday night.


Turkeys, Cranberry Sauce, and Canned Pumpkin

Most of the large supermarkets (with a butcher inside) can order you a Turkey – but get there quickly, it usually takes a few days to arrive! Click here for our Guide to Butchers in Tel Aviv.

Apparently a good bet for canned pumpkin is the Asian shop ‘East West Store’ – with branches in Shuk HaCarmel, Sarona Market, and Ramat HaChayal.

It’s very difficult to get fresh cranberries now, but most supermarkets stock frozen cranberries.

For those up for a trip to Raanana, Meatland is usually stocked with Cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie filling, stuffing, and turkeys.
