Our Staff’s Favorite Things

December 14th, 2023

Customers and staffers alike are always impressed by the sheer number of quality products we offer in such a small space. It can be easy to miss new items or overlook something different if you gravitate to the same products each visit.

This holiday season our WFM staffers have chosen their favorite products from around the Market to share with you. With a wide range of tastes and preferences, they are sure to spotlight a new-to-you item you’ll love! Keep reading to find out a few of our favorite things.



Laura (Produce): Champlain Orchards Hard Cider—Sidra

Why It’s Their Favorite Thing:

Jacob (Deli): Effie’s Oatcakes

Why It’s Their Favorite Thing:
