Where can I find real roast turkey in Princeton, NJ?

An older family member coming to stay with us in the Princeton NJ area eats a turkey sandwich for lunch EVERY day. Seeking recommendations for deli or grocery store that has actual fresh roasted turkey for sale (as opposed to deli-type pre-cooked turkey breast). Will go pretty much anywhere in the Mercer County area if necessary. Thank you for any direction!

You could probably get your own turkey and roast it for pretty cheap at any grocery store. Some stores will even roast them for you with a pre-order.

Just an aside, I too, love the off the bone real roasted turkey sandwich, tell your relative to come to Boston and I could turn them on to EVERY good turkey sandwich here.

But my suggestion is to look up every Jewish deli around. They usually have them. With a good pickle, too. OK, I'm off for a turkey sandwich...

I would check out Whole Foods on Route 1. I know they have a sort of carving station for meats in their prepared foods section.

Do you have a Boston Market restaurant nearby? They have roasted turkey (and wonderful side dishes).

Yeah I think that Whole Foods is a good bet

I was gonna suggest the same thing as Pollomacho; if you roast your own turkey and freeze it, even considering the costs of the ziploc baggies, it's tremendously cheaper. One $30 turkey plus five or six bucks in bags will probably keep him/her in sandwiches for a couple months.

'Course, you do need the freezer space.

Wegman's on Rt. 1 in the Nassau Park shopping center also has roast turkey like you describe.

Best answer: At the Food Court in Marketfair Mall on Route 1 S, there's a Basset's Original Turkey (or a clone thereof). Lotsa good choices, just ate there yesterday.

fwiw just pick up a boneless breast, stick a thermo in it, pull it out at 150 degrees, wrap it in foil, leave it on the counter until it cools, slice as needed for sandwiches voila. in my hood a boneless breast with meat enough for sandwiches for 2 everyday is about 13 bux.
