Fred Meyer today shared his customers’ favorite Thanksgiving side dishes ahead of one of the biggest foodie feasts of the year.
“We know that families and friends create memories around food on many vacations,” said Jeffery Temple, general affairs manager at Fred Meyer. “At Thanksgiving, we see so many customers searching for ingredients to make meals that their families have shared for generations. It’s so rewarding to be part of their tables and play an important role in reviving favorite memories and creating new ones.
Fred Meyer expects Thanksgiving menus to be loaded with potatoes, roasted vegetables and cranberries this year. Favorite side dishes the grocer predicts families will enjoy together this November in the Pacific Northwest include:
- Potatoes: more than 18 varieties and in many forms such as mashed, sweetened, baked, roasted or casseroled
- Roasted vegetables: root vegetables like onions, sweet potatoes, turnips, beets, radishes, and carrots
- Cranberries: customers more often choose canned cranberry sauce over fresh cranberries.
To prepare these favorite side dishes, Fred Meyer expects to sell*,
- Over 239,000 boxes of cranberry sauce
- Over 146,000 bags of fresh cranberries
- Over 2.5 million pounds of potatoes
- Over 700,000 pounds of sweet potatoes
Additionally, Fred Meyer shares the company’s 2022 trademark film, “Today’s vacation moments are tomorrow’s memories.” This short introduces viewers to a Kroji character who navigates the holiday season and remembers that the best memories are made around food with his family.
