Reasons to shop bulk all year long:
· The bulk department offers big savings throughout the year.
o Shoppers can buy as little or as much of an ingredient as they need, which means they’re not paying for product they won’t use.
o Everything in the bulk department uses minimal packaging, which reduces waste and passes savings on to shoppers.
o Shoppers can pick up a pinch of that once-a-year seasoning or experiment with a new ingredient without paying for the whole bottle or package.
· Buying in exact amounts cuts down on food spoilage and waste.
· Bins are replenished often, so ingredients are super fresh.
- There are tons of options to pick from! Whole Foods Market’s bulk department offers hundreds of high quality natural and organic options – from whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds to dried fruit, granola and snack mixes—all at great value prices.
