Whole Foods Market will be 30 this September, celebrating three decades of natural and organic foods.  A Birthday bash is planed for the headquarters and festivities at all of its stores. I can still remember knowing about Whole Foods Market stores before eating organic “was a trend”, now almost 30 years later, the same stores I heard about as a child are still around!

John Mackey, co-founder and co-CEO, said in a press release, “Whole Foods Market was started to offer people healthy, high quality food in its purest state, and we’re still committed to that mission 30 years later”.  “It has been extremely rewarding to see that Whole Foods Market is much more than a grocery store to our shoppers and our Team Members.  It is a catalyst for helping make our world a better place to live. We now have the scale, visibility and opportunity to have a larger influence than ever before.”

To commemorate its 30th birthday, 30 shoppers (and their guests) were selected from more than 5,600 entries from the Company’s “A Heart as Big as Texas” short essay contest to win a trip to Whole Foods Market’s world headquarters in Austin for an expense-paid VIP culinary weekend, September 17-19, presented by Texas Tourism, JetBlue Airways and Radisson Austin.

All 298 stores companywide will also be celebrating with parties and events from September 17-20.  Visit local store web pages to learn about their 30th birthday festivities at wholefoodsmarket.com/stores and visit the Whole Foods Market 30th birthday press room page at: http://bit.ly/c2zcDI.
