Thanksgiving might be the biggest day for sharing a home-cooked meal with family and friends.
With all the pressure to serve the most fantastic spread, you're bound to forget to buy fresh rolls or run out of butter. Though Publix and Trader Joe's are closed on Thanksgiving, there are a host of options where you can stock up on everything from wine and beer to an entire dinner.
The Fresh Market. All locations are open until 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Purchase a pie for the holiday table and give back.
