Between gift shopping and holiday parties, it can be difficult to find time to cook the perfect Christmas dinner. Let the professionals take something off your plate — or, more accurately, put something on your plate — and handle the main course. Here are five places to buy Christmas ham in Atlanta this holiday season.
The Fresh Market
The Fresh Market’s spiral sliced ham is available year-round, but it tastes best paired with Christmas cheer. The ham is double-glazed with honey and baked sugar then smoked over hickory hardwood. Serve eight to 10 guests with Fresh Market’s 7- to 9-inch ham; it costs approximately $27 and can be ordered here.
