Bakery Service Team Member for Whole Foods Market


Things don’t get much more wholesome than bread. The “staff of life,” “our daily bread” and all the other references to bread throughout history makes it clear that bread is central to our lives, regardless of our culture. So, it's no wonder that each store's bakery is such a popular destination.

We bake daily, using only the freshest ingredients, including cage-free eggs, natural butters and the best quality unbleached, unbromated flour available, to offer you the choices you want and need. Our stores feature European style loaves and while selections vary from day to day and store to store, each loaf is made slowly and with care to maximize flavor and texture.

Other selections from our Bakeries include cornbread, foccacia, bagels, croissants, pies, and cakes of all kinds, each one made with love and skill from the finest ingredients.

We never allow artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or hydrogenated fats in any of the products we sell, so the next time the perfume of fresh baked-bread lures you to one of our bakeries, rest assured that whatever you buy for you and your family will be the very best available.

Our Gluten Free Bakehouse

We pioneered gluten-free baking, with an independent offsite bakehouse dedicated exclusively to the creation of an ever-growing number of gluten-free products, from sandwich bread and pizza crust to cookies and extraordinary desserts. Look for items from our gluten free bakehouse in the freezer section of your local store!
