Cost of the Feast: New Thanksgiving Survey for Shoppers

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

The average cost of a Thanksgiving feast is more expensive this year, but not by much.

In its annual survey, the American Farm Bureau Federation says the average cost of this year's Thanksgiving dinner for 10 is $49.41.  That's up $0.37 from a year ago.

The organization says a 16-pound turkey will cost you about $21.65 this year. Along with turkey, the survey shopping list includes stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls, cranberries, a relish tray, peas, pumpkin pie and beverages, like coffee and milk.
