In between Common Ground's Cafe and the produce section, enjoy Thanksgiving dishes made with local and organic ingredients at the co-op's grab-and-go section. In my Thanksgiving guide, I recommended Common Ground as a great place to find sides, and I picked up a few for my holiday.

Find dishes like stuffing, veggies, pumpkin bisque, cranberry sauce, pies, cookies, and rolls. No pre-order necessary, and no cooking required. Vegan and wheat-free options are available.

I picked up some Bakehouse bread, and I also tried the savory seitan. Sliced into thick discs for easy re-heating and serving, the seitan had a great breakfast-sausage flavor despite being vegan.
