What a Dad Wants

By Allison Burch, May 31, 2013  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Allison Burch

My husband is a great dad. When we moved from a condo to a house a few years ago, one of the most important things in the search was a nice yard for our son to enjoy, and a place where he could grill with ease.

If the dad you’re celebrating on Father’s Day (hint: Sunday, June 16!) love to grill, give him what he really wants…something delicious to sear over the flames.

Hook dad up with the best meat (or plant protein) you can buy. You and the kids cook up the sides and desserts. Uncork a bottle of wine or a favorite beer, then gather around outside while the kids play and let dad sit back and survey his domain.

Meat that’s Worth It

Great taste and superior quality; that’s how we like to describe our meat and poultry. You can read up on what makes our meat a big deal at wholefoodsmarket.com/animalwelfare.

But don’t take our word for it. Take home a special cut (our expert butchers will help you find just the right one) and treat your dad or the dad you’re celebrating to a juicy steak.

Nothing Beats a Burger

If dad’s more of a burger dude, put together a patty that’s a little out of the ordinary and totally mouthwatering.

Seafood that’s Special

Whether it’s wild-caught or farmed, you’ll find the perfect catch in our stores.  With our aquaculture standards and commitment to sustainability, our seafood is under close scrutiny from the water all the way to our seafood case.

If dad’s smitten with seafood, hook something delicious to put on his plate.
