Some of the Tastemakers include Dan Barber of Blue Hill (a James Beard nominee), Brooklyn Brewery, Star of the Sea, Severino Homemade Pasta, Café Spice and Satur Farms. Angela Rakis, the executive coordinator for purchasing in Whole Food’s Northeast region states that the program evolved because “Whole Foods is committed to supporting local vendors and producers within the communities where we do business.” She also remarks that “giving shoppers an opportunity to know the stories and faces behind the products they enjoy makes the experience of shopping, cooking and eating more personal and fun.” That fun will begin later this summer, as you visit Whole Foods Market to delight in these talented artisans wonderful creations.
