The start of the holiday season is an exciting time at KWF as a variety of seasonal foods and festive gifts arrive in our stores. Brighten a friend or family member’s home or office with locally grown cyclamen, poinsettias & rosemary plants from Peace Tree Farm. Love making the most of what’s in season? Keep an eye out for naturi’s organic peeled Italian chestnuts (conveniently packaged and ready to eat), whole organic walnuts, organic pomegranates, clementines and a colorful variety of refreshing citrus fruit in our produce department.

Share your values

This holiday season Kimberton Whole Foods is giving back to our local communities by donating 10% of all gift card sales to a charitable organization unique to each of our store locations. Check out the descriptions here to find out which organization will benefit from your local store’s donation.

The right supplies for all of your baking needs

Nothing puts us in the holiday spirit like homemade cookies, breads, sweets and treats. Don’t let dietary needs or concerns about chemicals limit the fun. Explore our baking department to find the right alternative flour or sweetener for you and your guests. Not sure where to start? Ask any KWF team member for help!

Decorating baked goods is more fun when you can choose from different organic and Non-GMO Project Verified key ingredients and decoratifs, like India Tree’s liquid decorating colors. Made with FDA and EU approved vegetable colorants, this vibrant line of food coloring is completely free of synthetic dyes. As one of our team members put it, “With Sunflower Yellow colored by turmeric and Raspberry Red colored by beets, holiday decorating becomes a worry-free occasion.” Use them in combination with royal icing or a sugar glaze to add festive color to your holiday creations.

Press for time? You can find pre-made cookie doughs, including festive gluten-free options from Immaculate Baking Company in our refrigerator case.

Unique entertaining options

holiday stollen

One thing we especially look forward to is the arrival of freshly baked stollen from Stoudts’ Wonderful Good Market. Longtime artisan baker, Elizabeth Stoudt, uses a special family recipe to create this traditional German fruit bread. The locally made sweet bread is a favorite dessert option. Ideal for serving with coffee, tea or hot chocolate at holiday parties, this festively wrapped craft bread makes the perfect host or hostess gift.
