Our Cherries Are The Bomb!

Even though I’ve worked at Whole Foods Market for over a decade, and been a loyal shopper for even longer, I am still constantly impressed with and amazed by the consistently stellar quality of our produce. Nowhere is that quality more apparent than with those tasty summer jewels: cherries. Right now, cherries are at their absolute peak of deliciousness (trust me: I can’t stop eating them), so you should DEFINITELY pick some up to enjoy the next time you’re in the store.
