The Urban Acres farm store in Oak Cliff

If you’re anything like us, the halcyon post-Halloween/pre-Thanksgiving days are unremarkable, save for the occasional terrifying thought: “What am I going to do for (Thanksgiving/Hanukkah/Christmas)?”

So before the holiday crazies take hold, you should be happy to know Urban Acres has got you covered--at least when it comes to food.

The two-year-old organic-food co-op (with a farm store in Oak Cliff) has been expanding of late, with a new pick-up location in Fort Worth, as well as nine other spots across the Metroplex where members can claim full ($50 for 30 pounds) or half ($30 for 15 pounds) shares of produce every two weeks.

As Thanksgiving approaches, Urban Acres shifts into organic-turkey mode, offering pasture-raised Broad Breasted turkeys from Richardson Farms in Rockdale--and they’re sure to make any meal tastier.

For a $30 deposit, you can reserve your bird. The final price is determined after you decide on a small, medium or large turkey ($6 per pound for co-op members, $7 per pound for non-members).

Paired with recent co-op shares including everything from Austin Family Farm apples to potatoes from Gundermann Acres, Urban Acres seems to effortlessly celebrate the season’s bounty, one bushel at a time.
