Do you have your eye on a new cereal but wonder if it's too sweet? Just ask someone who works at Whole Foods to sample the item before you commit. Whole Foods has a "try before you buy" policy, giving customers opportunities to taste products of interest.

Get Your Produce Portioned


Watermelons are big. Wouldn't it be great to chop one in half at the store and only buy what you'll eat? At Whole Foods, you can do just that. A store employee will slice whichever large fruit or veggie you'd like. You might not be able to get half an orange, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Consult A Cheese Expert


If you love cheese, Whole Foods is the place for you. More than half of America's official Certified Cheese Professionals (CCPs) work at Whole Foods. They must pass a three-hour exam to receive certification.

These cheese experts come in handy - Whole Foods carries between 250 and 1,000 cheeses from around the globe. And if you want the perfect wine to pair with your dairy, CCPs can help you find a match.

Buy More To Pay Less


If a Whole Foods customer buys an entire case of a product, they receive a 10% discount on eligible merchandise. This makes sense for shoppers who need to stock up on items like wine during the holiday season. The deal applies not just to booze, but to other popular things like rice and whole grains, too.
