I enjoy learning about religious and cultural traditions, and the food angle is unique in that we can, fairly easily, try out new customs. Very interesting article. Appreciating food is vital for all of us and the author's tone is reverent while remaining accessible.

This is great! Always a fan of halal recipes and eco-blogging, I really enjoy Yvonne's take on multicultural celebrations and food. I tried the medjool dates with orange zest: l-o-v-e-d it! Ramadan blessings to all viewers and Eid Mubarak from England. The Eco Muslim (:

Salaam! Juat loved your article and so happy to be celebrating Ramadan with three Whole foods in our Area. As a member of the board of the local mosque and Eid festival organizer, I have requested Cupertino Whole foods to be part of our Ramadan and Eid celebrations. We will be posting your article and our local store info on our list to go support them. Let's encourage our multicultural community members from WVMA, www.wvmuslim.org to share their favorite Ramadan food recipes with you!

I just did my Ramadan shopping at Whole Foods. It's so important to me to get organic, sustainable, and if possible also halal options. I get something from all of these categories at Whole Foods. Thanks!

This is awesome. I'm a christian and don't celebrate Ramadan, but I totally appreciate what it stands for and love the way you explain it. Also, those dates? I'm hungry just looking at them!

Whole Foods, you've created a new customer for life. Born and raised in a country that prides itself in its freedom of equality irrespective of gender, race, or creed, living in the United States as a Muslim-American has been more challenging now than at any point in recent history. Your recognizing me, and joining into one of the most celebrated times of the year, means more than any amount of product that I could purchase. Thanks. You've earned a customer for life out of me. Amin

I am a fan of Halal, and you can't find that at an average grocery chain. I love that Whole Foods Market celebrates so many cultures and values by welcoming such products and articles!

As a young upper-middle class professional female with a small child at home(i.e. an interest in organic/healthy living and the means to do so) - I fall into a demographic that Whole Foods is after. I am also a Muslim and let me just tell you how EXCITED I am that Whole Foods is participating in this campaign. Thank you for the recognition for this community and this holiday. Although I typically favor my locally-owned grocers, you've now earned yourself a loyal customer in me. I greatly look forward to the possibility of an expansion of this campaign in the future - perhaps to include in-store promotion as well?

Great article, I LOVE It. I live in Redmond, WA area, and I pass by whole food at least once a week. It is a must-stop visit for me now whenever I'll pass by it:)

After reading about your email to your stores which stated in part ""We should not highlight Ramadan in signage in our stores as that could be considered 'Celebrating or promoting' Ramadan.", I will no longer support Whole Foods in any way. I do not support the racism and anti-Muslim direction of your company.
