The Freshest Turkey In Brooklyn is Found Inside Bensonhurst's Live Poultry Markets

If you haven’t yet started your turkey for Thanksgiving you may be in trouble for today, but it’s still good to know where you can find the freshest poultry in Brooklyn for next year!

In Bensonhurst, there are three live poultry markets: the Chinese-owned H.K. Live Poultry (8165 New Utrecht Avenue), the halal Canola Live Poultry Market (1467 61st Street), and 27-year neighborhood fixture La Pera Bros (1373 61rst Street). In addition to turkey — which are the biggest sellers before Thanksgiving — these chaotic shops sell quail, rabbit, ducks, squab (baby pigeons), eggs, and more.

Check out the video’s accompanying article for more about the Bensonhurst poultry markets.
