Throughout the year Living in Nyon receives many local retail questions and particularly in December on where to by a turkey for Christmas.
Most large supermarkets and the Manor supermarket in Chavanne centre sell turkeys (turkey/une dinde in French), however, Living in Nyon’s favourite place to shop is the Marc Deblue butcher in the centre of Nyon. Their meats and products are always of excellent locally sourced quality, they sell lard grillé too, (smoked bacon) which is always a hit with its British customers. Plus, the staff in this shop and the owner of course are very friendly! See a review here on Yelp by a customer from Austin, Texas.
The shop itself has been hidden away somewhat recently whilst there has been construction of the new Mcdonalds extension next door, but they have always been open for business, so give them a try! If you want to buy a turkey, you need to order it in advance, just decide how many kilos you want , leave your name and it should be ready to pick up on the day you want.
