I do shop the deals at my local Whole Foods once a month, but those seem to vary by location, and aren’t always advertised specials (ie – sometimes I will show up to discover locally grown broccoli crowns for $.99 a lb!).
But, this time I received a sale alert that specifically stated it is “nationwide” … the catch? One day only, TODAY! If you are passing by a Whole Foods today (Friday, June 18), you can swing in and pick up as many cherries as you want for just $1.99 per pound. It is Cherry Fest.
In honor of this event they are also hosting a giveaway for a week long trip (including airfare!) for two to the Northwest cherry-growing states. And, June 21 begins Cherry week on the Whole Foods blog, where you can submit a cherry recipe for a chance to win a $1000 Whole Foods gift card!
Happy stone fruit season,
