Whole Foods Tour

Last week, our group went on a field to to Whole Foods Market.  Due to the limited size allowed per group, we had to set up tours two days back to back to accommodate our group.

This was one of our older kid field trips because Whole Foods Market only do these tours for children ages 5 and up. 

Group #1


Kelly took us on a tour around the store.  We started in the produce department.   She talked to them about the fruits and vegetables…organic versus nonorganic, etc.



Does anyone know what kind of vegetable this is?

(It was a type of radish.)

During our tour, we got samples to enjoy.  We enjoyed some yummy pineapple.

Next, we went to the seafood department.

In this department, we were able to sample fresh tuna salad.  Boy, it was delicious.  I had no idea how much better fresh tuna salad would taste.  It had a mild flavor.  I was pleasantly surprised considering that I’m not a big fan of tuna salad made with can tuna.


Meat Department

Group 2

(They took the tour the next morning.)


It was a very nice tour.  We really enjoyed all of the samples.  Kelly did a great job keeping the kids engaged and interactive while she taught them different things about food they may not have already known.

Thanks Kelly!
