Supermercado Nacional Bella Vista Mall branch in Santo Domingo had a little Thanksgiving food display, with imports from the US. I didn't look closely but there was cranberry sauce among other things. Maybe the Santiago branches have this as well?
We have some information on the Dominican Cooking site about using auyama instead of pumpkin, written by DR1 member Diane. ;)

I just got back from Santiago Supermercado National and the Libbys Pumpkin in can is available for 60RD. It can be located in the baking isle. Better hurry...about ten left.
