@Rizwan Uquili, Currently our selection of halal meat is very small and available in just a couple of regions. We suggest contacting your local Whole Foods Market store to see what halal options are available: http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/

I always used to drive past Whole Foods on my way to Trader Joe's, and never thought twice about it. Whole Foods just earned my respect, and of course, a loyal customer. Thanks for recognizing Ramadan!

A big thanks to Whole Foods for recognizing that there are many American Muslims who go virtually unnoticed in the business world. I am already a customer and after reading this article I will be even more likely to shop at Whole Foods.

I enjoy learning about religious and cultural traditions, and the food angle is unique in that we can, fairly easily, try out new customs. Very interesting article. Appreciating food is vital for all of us and the author's tone is reverent while remaining accessible.

Salaam! Juat loved your article and so happy to be celebrating Ramadan with three Whole foods in our Area. As a member of the board of the local mosque and Eid festival organizer, I have requested Cupertino Whole foods to be part of our Ramadan and Eid celebrations. We will be posting your article and our local store info on our list to go support them. Let's encourage our multicultural community members from WVMA, www.wvmuslim.org to share their favorite Ramadan food recipes with you!

I just did my Ramadan shopping at Whole Foods. It's so important to me to get organic, sustainable, and if possible also halal options. I get something from all of these categories at Whole Foods. Thanks!

This is awesome. I'm a christian and don't celebrate Ramadan, but I totally appreciate what it stands for and love the way you explain it. Also, those dates? I'm hungry just looking at them!

Whole Foods, you've created a new customer for life. Born and raised in a country that prides itself in its freedom of equality irrespective of gender, race, or creed, living in the United States as a Muslim-American has been more challenging now than at any point in recent history. Your recognizing me, and joining into one of the most celebrated times of the year, means more than any amount of product that I could purchase. Thanks. You've earned a customer for life out of me. Amin

I am a fan of Halal, and you can't find that at an average grocery chain. I love that Whole Foods Market celebrates so many cultures and values by welcoming such products and articles!
