What's New in May

Most of my clothes are the same colors. I have the same hairstyle I did in high school. I haven’t bought new music in a couple months. Sure, I’m stuck in a few ruts, but when it comes to food, I’m an adventurous trailblazer conquering new-to-me cooking methods, ingredients and products. “Yes! I’ll try that,” is my food motto.

If you’re also on the lookout for products to try, you’ll be happy to know that Whole Foods Market adds many new items to our shelves every month. Dig in to our most recent additions with ease knowing they all meet our Quality Standards, meaning they’re free of hydrogenated fats and artificial preservatives, colors and flavors.

Here’s what new now:
