Take Advantage of our Holiday Table

Have you ever been in our stores during the fall and noticed folks huddled around a table happily being helped by Whole Foods Market team members? Have you wondered, “What the heck is that all about?” Well, the short answer is: “Those people are making their holidays less stressful.” They’re taking advantage of our Holiday Table! From ordering a little or a lot, team members at the Holiday Table in your store know all the ins and outs of making your special meal a little brighter. They can help you order a few perfect dishes to complement your homemade ones. They’ll also help figure out how to meet your guests’ special dietary needs — like ordering a single meal for a vegetarian guest while you prepare turkey for the others. Want to try some new recipes this year? They’ll guide you in that and in a whole lot more. Oh, and of course, we’re happy to prepare the entire meal for you, too. Here’s a short video that explains just how the team members at our Holiday Table can help make things easier for you: No time to stop by the store to visit the Holiday Table? No worries. We also offer online ordering. Simply visit wholefoodsmarket.com/shop to order a complete Thanksgiving and holiday meal packages. You can also pick and choose from fully prepared entrées, elegant appetizers and your favorite sides. If you want to cook the main dish yourself, we have ready-to-cook turkeys, hams and roasts with no added antibiotics and added hormones. (Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising pork and poultry.) Plus, when you place your order online, you can also make a donation to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign and we’ll match your donation, up to $25,000. So, whether you want to cook a little or a lot – we’re here to help. Stop by our Holiday Table or check out our online ordering site and see how we can help you share the flavor and save the time. Have you ever used our Holiday Table or ordered your meals online? What'd you think?

The online site only shows a Thanksgiving meal for 8 -- are there any smaller sizes?

we did not receive notification of the local turkey food event, it arrived two days after the actual event. We would have gone.

@KC If the online store is showing a Thanksgiving Meal for 8 as their smallest option, this is indeed the smallest options available for online order. HOWEVER, if you contact your store directly, they will likely be happy to accommodate your smaller party needs. The link below will help you identify the contact information for your community's Whole Foods Market. Also, you can order your desired meal options in smaller quantities if you order them individually. The smallest turkey will be 10 lbs but the sides can be ordered in desired portions. www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores

@Kim Each store does their Holiday Table a little differently. Thus, the best way to get the most accurate information regarding the ingredients used for the Holiday Table items is to reach out to you community Whole Foods Market directly. The link below will help you identify the contact information for your store. A Team Member there will be happy to chat with you about the offerings. www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores

Pricing for pkg. do not make sense. Difference in dinner for 4 and for 6-8 is $40, and all you get is 4 extra lbs. of turkey. Difference in dinner for 6-8 and 10-12 is $20 and you double each of the sides and get 4 extra lbs. of turkey. Difference in 7 lb. and 11 lb. turkey is only $10. Why am I paying 40 extra for 4 lb. of turkey. I went to Huntersville NC store and they think it is strange and cannot give me an answer.

@JOAN - Thank you for your feedback. Our sides come in two pound containers, currently that is the smallest size we offer. Each year, we evaluate our pricing in an effort to provide the options and selection that our customers need at the best value we can offer, and I will relay your comments to our internal team for when they are planning the menus for 2015.
