Nobody loves Halloween like Whole Foods Market & we’ve got a lot to celebrate! First, and most importantly, be sure to stock up on groceries this Halloween because 5% of our day’s sales will be donated to Free Arts Minnesota, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the healing powers of artistic expression into the lives of abused, neglected and at-risk children and their families. Additionally, we’ll have tricks and treats for all ages. From 4-6pm children are invited to travel the store, picking up treats in each department. We’ll have fun activities for the little goblins and ghouls too! Plus, all day, we’ll reward any adults, still cool enough to dress up for Halloween, with a special trick or treat.
