Foraging at Whole Foods Market

Imagine tasting your way through your local community, meeting local artisans and growers, hearing their stories and then helping bring their products to market to share with others. Now imagine this is your job. 

A forager is someone who searches widely for food or provisions. Whole Foods Market® has local foragers across the nation helping us source from more than 6,500 local vendors. From country farms to urban bakeries, these on-the-go team members seek out the best local products, so we can bring more great stuff to our customers.

Meet Elly Truesdell, our local forager in the Northeast, and get a taste of her job.
