Baked from Scratch Every Day
Our bakers start with organically-grown whole grain flours. From there - and from scratch - they use organic sugar, local honey, maple syrup and molasses to bake up a wide variety fresh breads and desserts. Our breads include our signature Whole Earth sandwich bread, challah, non-yeasted brown rice bread, and many more. The bakery case is filled with fresh muffins, scones, macaroons, cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pie by the slice and a selection of vegan desserts.
* While all of it is delicious, it is not all gluten-free, nut-free, or vegan. All items are made in a kitchen that processes gluten, nuts and dairy.
Everything you need. Nothing you don’t.
Whole Earth Center is a full service grocery store. We offer a full selection of packaged goods, including many vegan, raw foods, paleo and gluten-free choices.
We carefully select the products we offer by scrutinizing every label, every ingredient and every source. We follow strict guidelines to ensure the products on our shelves do not contain artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, or sweeteners. We do not carry items made with bromated or bleached flours, high fructose corn syrup, trans fats or artificial fats.
We do not source products that contain the top five ingredients most likely to contain GMO, including corn, soy, and canola. We search for products with the Non-GMO Project Verified seal. Whole Earth Center was an early adopter of the Non-GMO Project and helps to fund the project every year, because we believe you have a right to know what is in the products we offer. As the industry evolves, so do we. Staying on the cutting edge of food industry issues and the latest information about our food supply allows us to keep our customers in-the-know and our shelves stocked with high-quality foods.
