About the Whole Foods Market Cooking Department

Bringing together community and cooking, the Whole Foods Market Cooking Department celebrates home cooks — people stirring things up in household kitchens large and small. This welcoming space is designed to inspire and encourage cooks of all kinds to explore the joys of preparing meals for themselves, their families and their friends. Shoppers can chat with each other, check out seasonal menu ideas and cooking demonstrations, and get practical kitchen advice. At home, they can continue the dialogue and discovery at wholefoodsmarketcooking.com. The Cooking Department is designed to engage cooks of all levels and to provide an accessible, interactive experience where questions are answered, challenges are tackled, and the delight that comes from preparing the perfect dish is born.

Conveniently located between in-store bulk and produce sections, the Cooking Department offers the building blocks to make a great meal, including an array of spices, culinary herbs, gourmet salts, cookbooks and kitchen tools. Single ingredient items take center stage with a carefully curated selection of heirloom beans, hard-to-find grains, fresh nuts and seeds, flavorful dried fruits and much, much more.
