Thanksgiving Day dinner can be purchased already prepared for your family in Reno. For those who want the traditional big meal, but don't want to deal with all the preparation and other work, we have markets from which to purchase a complete meal, along with other options to consider. This could be a good choice for people with lots of other activities planned for Thanksgiving Day and the holiday weekend.
