Coming to a store near you, all Whole Foods Markets host holiday tasting events, where you can sample traditional favorites and new flavors for your holiday feast. I don't know what they'll do this year, but usually they serve up a pretty plate of tasty treats, so stop by for a taste if you are in the area and looking for fun :)

November 11th & 12th 12 - 4 PM
December 2nd & 3rd 12 - 4 PM
Dec. 9th & 10th 12 - 4 PM

smoked salmon cups


Twice Baked Sweet Potato with Bacon Maple Crisp Topping


Pork Crown Roast


Turkey stuffing Ranch Bites
