BOSTON (AP) - As Massachusetts residents plan their Thanksgiving Day menus, state agriculture officials are asking that they consider buying local.

Several communities are planning to hold holiday farmers’ markets over the weekend and leading up the holiday, featuring turkeys, cranberries, pumpkins and other Massachusetts-grown food products.

For example, America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration Harvest Market will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday at Pilgrim Memorial Park in Plymouth.

The Department of Agriculture also says Red Apple Farm is sponsoring its 12th annual Thanksgiving Harvest Festival in Philipston over the weekend.

More than 40 farmers markets continue operating through the winter in Massachusetts.
