Whole Foods Market seeks local farmers

Updated:

For the second year in a row, Louisiana farmers enjoyed record breaking values for many of their crops which added nearly 12 billion dollars to the state's economy.

The numbers reflect almost a four percent increase from 2012. According to the LSU Ag center it was a good year for soy beans, rice and corn. With farmers seeing more green, a grocery chain coming to the hub city wants to continue that success by offering a chance to be showcased on their shelves.

Kristina Bradford with Whole Foods Market says they seek out local farmers, producers and manufacturers to sell in their stores. Bradford says there's even the opportunity if a products does well it could be featured in other stores statewide or even region wide. Whole Foods Market is set to open late this year off Ambassador Caffery.

If you're a local producer, farmer or manufacturer and would like to have your product on the shelves of whole foods email louisianalocal@wholefoods.com with the following details: product information, company name, contact information, ingredients, and manufacturing information. All products must meet whole foods market's quality standards.
