Local grocery shoppers can look forward to lower prices at the checkout when getting ready for Thanksgiving this year.  According to the Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s annual Marketbasket survey, the price of a 16-pound turkey in the state is nearly two dollars less this year than 2017.  Econofoods Store Manager Jon Calhoun says he has seen turkey prices continually come down locally as well since avian influenza impacted poultry prices.

 

 

The price for a 16-pound turkey this year in Wisconsin is $19.04 compared to the national average of $21.71.  The cost of a complete Thanksgiving dinner for ten people is $48.90, nationally, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.  That is nearly four dollars more than the Wisconsin prices of $45.01.
