You've got to get the turkey right for Thanksgiving to be a success. But if you have outstanding sides, you can sometimes save the holiday meal from going sideways. You'll be in good hands if you visit the BadSeed market (1909 McGee) tonight, which is open from 4 to 9 p.m. The downtown farmers market is holding its annual Thanksgiving market with more than a dozen local food producers selling every ingredient and product you need to set up your entire table.

"The Badseed market will have local chestnuts, pecans, and black walnuts as well as freshly milled flour, free-range eggs, and raw honey," says market founder Brooke Salvaggio via e-mail. "An outrageous abundance of heirloom produce will complement grass-fed meats, gourmet mushrooms, and French Farmstead Cheeses."

BadSeed will also have a collection of baked goods and desserts, as well as raw vegan chocolate.

"Rustic sourdough breads, buttery rolls, holiday pies, and delectable sweet treats (all made with local/organic wheat) will be available along with slow-cooked jams, apple butter, and herbed jellies," Salvaggio says. "All this can be gotten while enjoying a hot cup of Oddly Correct coffee with aromatic beans to boot."

Free-range turkeys are available from Green Gate Family Farm. The turkeys are heritage breeds, ranging from 12 to 18 pounds, and supplemented with certified organic grain. You can reserve a bird by calling 816-809-5074. They will be delivered Tuesday, November 20, in the Brookside neighborhood.
