It’s cherry season! A bowl of fresh cherries is one of the best ways to savor summer. At Whole Foods Market, we seek out the highest quality, sweetest cherries, and we pride ourselves on offering some of the largest fruit on the market, which means you get more fruit and less stone in each individual cherry. We visit the orchards regularly, measuring the cherries’ sugar content and selecting the plumpest fruits. And we figured that it would be cool to award a trip to cherry country to help celebrate this summertime favorite. Whole Foods Market is partnering with Intrepid Travel® to offer a chance to win a trip for two to the Pacific Northwest. Enter this contest on our Cherry Fest web page by July 14th. Experience the magnificent terrain of the Northwest cherry growing states and more on this 7-night/8-day camping adventure for 2 including airfare, accommodations, local transportation and select meals and park entrance fees. Relax seaside in Mendocino, CA; stand beside millennia-old trees; experience the beauty of Silver Falls State Park, OR; examine bizarre lava-landscapes near Mt St Helens; get a head rush on top of Mt Rainier; coast along in Seattle; and finish your journey with a trip to Wenatchee, a key Whole Foods Market cherry growing region in beautiful Washington State. Find out more about this tour. Check our blog in the coming days for more posts celebrating this seasonal favorite. Can’t wait? Find inspiration for incorporating this seasonal favorite into vibrant salsas, refreshing salads, sassy sangria coolers and more at Cherry Fest. Whether you enter the contest or not, a fresh, heaping bowlful of cherries is a summer tradition, and a classic cherry pie is a celebration in itself.
