No matter what the occasion — be it a birthday, holiday, apology or simply to show affection to a friend or loved one — roses are always a good idea. And since our stores offer many varieties of the elegant blooms, we know a thing or two about these iconic flowers. Read on to learn what you should consider when you’re picking up a bouquet of roses from your Whole Foods Market store. And maybe buy an extra one for yourself … because #selflove.

Exclusively for Prime members in select ZIP codes.

Our roses aren’t just any roses.

We carry Whole Trade roses and forge strong relationships with the farms that grow these roses — including new varieties — because these beautiful flowers are a real win-win. Not only does our Whole Trade program highlight our commitment to better wages and working conditions for growers and environmental responsibility, but a portion of every sale goes toward a community development fund, and the workers themselves get to decide how to use those funds. So when you’re gifting Whole Trade roses, you’re also giving back and making them an extra-thoughtful gift.

We have the perfect color for you.

Whole Foods Market stores typically carry roses in a variety of colors: red, pink, orange, white, yellow and lavender. This makes it easy to pick the perfect color for your occasion, whether it’s a special date night, birthday or graduation party. Be sure to call your local store to confirm color availability before visiting or placing an order.

Our flowers get the VIP treatment.

Rest assured, our team members treat every flower with the same care given to our produce and other food products in our store. They’re here to ensure that the flowers you choose look fresh, smell great and will bring a smile to their recipient’s face.

Our team members are happy to help.

Team members from our Floral department can answer your questions, wrap your flowers for free or create a custom arrangement for an additional fee.
