While La Farm Bakery already sells its breads at Whole Foods in the area, the new facility will offer fresh bread as well as pastries and the rest of the bakery’s regular menu lineup.
“The quality and taste of their breads and baked goods as well as the overall mission of La Farm Bakery align with the core values that set Whole Foods Market apart,” says Colleen Conrad, culinary and hospitality director for Whole Food’s southern region. “We are thrilled to welcome Master Baker Lionel Vatinet and his team at our newest store.”
The move comes after the bakery announced earlier this summer that it would open a new production facility in Cary, allowing the bakery more production and retail space. Additionally, La Farm plans to expand its original location in late September.
La Farm Bakery is one of the most respected bakeries in the country, led by Master Bakery Lionel Vatinet. He is a multiple-time semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Baker Award.
