Va. Farm Bureau: Thanksgiving cost stable

By Associated Press

The Virginia Farm Bureau says turkey and all the trimmings won’t cost much more this Thanksgiving than it did a year ago.

The bureau says it should cost $43.39 to serve turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls, cranberries and peas to 10 adults. The price also includes a tray of carrots and celery, as well as pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

Officials say a survey of grocery stores indicate all that food will cost 1 cent more this year, on average.

Of course, where you get your food makes a difference. The bureau says the highest average cost was in Pound in Wise County, where dinner for 10 would cost $52.36. Bristol has the cheapest eats at $33.18.
