As Thanksgiving draws ever nearer, some Americans who plan to travel during the holidays are busily watching the weather reports, while others are focusing their attention on organizing and hosting annual feast. Still others are racing to get all the holiday details finalized.

Here's what we know about hunting down last-minute Thanksgiving deals for those hosts still in the market for a turkey.

For shoppers interested in organic options, Whole Foods chains will operate on Thanksgiving day from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For those who prefer not to cook at all, Whole Foods is offering a special that serves 12 and comes with a pre-cooked organic turkey and six sides (pricing varies depending on location). For more affordable options, Boston Market is also offering catering deals this Thanksgiving. 


For more bargains, Time rounded up a list of 10 supermarkets boasting major discounts on turkeys. And for non-meat eaters, About's food vertical, About Food, compiles a list of 10 vegan and vegetarian alternatives to the typical Thanksgiving day bird, complete with reviews of each choice. 

If none of these options work, here's SNL's take on Thanksgiving this year, which is a surefire way to extinguish stress.
