Ulla & John at Wholefoods - Celebrating the Local

Wholefoods is celebrating small local producers and invited the owners for a photo shoot to their local store. The owners/vendors added to the buzz in the produce department where the photographer took the pictures in front of the produce. If was fun meeting other owners that we see regularly at the farmers markets in Boulder and Vail. As the Boulder store sells alcoholic beverages we mingled with corn, salad dressing, ice cream and other booze. It was fun to be the celebrity for the day.
