I love local olive oils and artisan breads from Queen Creek (Arizona); but my favourite local products are the fresh oranges, lemons, and other citrus to be found anywhere in the East Valley of the Phoenix Metro area (Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Apache Junction, Tempe, south Scottsdale) is better than those from California and Florida (my apologies to my hometown of Los Angeles) - juicier, more variety in taste and color, longer harvesting seasons ... can't beat it!

since i have to travel some 50+ miles to get to whole foods, i appreciate the fact that local small businesses are represented at the store. it's a special day to get to go to whole foods to secure locally grown/produced healthy foods. i applaud whole food's efforts in making these products available to it's consumers. thank you.

Papalote salsa (San Francisco) for sure. It's so delicious and different from any salsa I've ever tasted.

That is difficult to decide. In my region of the country (the South) so many things are local and yummy! The tomatoes, corn, strawberries and peaches in the summertime. Right now, the greens, cabbage, sweet potatoes and varieties of squash are great. When thinking about a particular provider of a packaged product, The Goat Lady Goat cheeses are a favorite of mine and many in the area. Fresh, local and tasty! A great compliment to many of the areas local wines

I love D. Medicine Woman's ointments from the Big Island. She makes them all herself from great essential oils and nuts and avocados she grows on her land.

So happy to see the raw kale chips in the basket!! That is my favorite local business product that I can buy at Whole Foods! My family and I go through at least one box a week.

My favorite local product is raw honey from Bron’s Bee Company. When I'm in my backyard tending to my garden and see bee's at work, I often wonder if they also contributed to the raw honey.
