Tour America’s Healthiest Grocery Store



Is your organization looking for ways to learn something new and fun?

Come on in for a complimentary guided tour of America's Healthiest Grocery Store!

You’ll learn about food and the many people who help bring it to your table, unique features of Whole Foods Market and Naperville location, nutrition, label reading, shopping tips, earth-friendly practices and more. Tours usually take about an hour. Bring your questions. You’ll each take home ideas for simple, healthy eating and a thank you gift.

How does it work?

  •   For optimum experience, we limit groups to 12 children/students and require one adult for every four students or children in your group—for a maximum total 15 participants per tour.
  • We offer tours Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with start times between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Please schedule at least 3 weeks in advance and give us 3 choices of day and time. Due to our Team Members’ focus on the holidays, no tours are scheduled in November and December.
  • We require signed Whole Foods Market waiver forms for each child/student participant.

Please note that tours cannot proceed without completed forms for the entire group.

  •  Group leaders are responsible for any additional waivers or permission forms required by their organization.
  • Group leaders are responsible for monitoring all participants for safe and respectful behavior.
  • Please advise us of any food allergies or sensitivities, and allowable packaged snacks well in advance. Since our facility is not dedicated allergen-free, we cannot guarantee against cross-contamination—this includes our bulk food, samples, hot bars, salad bars, and food prepared in our kitchen.
  • Questions? Stop by our Customer Service Desk or call 630-579-7700.
