Whole Foods Market’s Partnership with Liberty’s Kitchen
Whole Foods Market Gumbo Bar – with bases made by Liberty’s Kitchen
An estimated 10,000 people passed through the doors of the ReFresh Project to enter the new Whole Foods Market during its first week of operation. As they walked in, they may have seen the newly hung Liberty’s Kitchen sign to the left – marking the entrance to our new space. They may even have heard the hum of construction as crews worked diligently on the Liberty’s Kitchen dining space and commissary kitchen.
Hammers are knocking on the other side of these doors as construction continues on Liberty’s Kitchen’s new home!
When customers shopped in the bright and welcoming Whole Foods Market grocery store, they likely noticed many local references – from an express lane for “10ish items” to a wall of PEACE graffiti once on the building’s exterior. Another store component drawing acclaim is the gumbo bar with traditional sausage and vegetarian gumbo bases prepared by Liberty’s Kitchen. Liberty’s Kitchen is also producing salad dressings and bakery items for the store. Additionally, Whole Foods Market has decided to forgo a full service coffee bar and instead send customers next door to Liberty’s Kitchen for their cappuccinos.
Liberty’s Kitchen will open at the ReFresh Project in the summer of 2014. In the meantime, you can still eat our tasty MVB burger, giant fresh salads, and famous brownies in our current location at 422 ½ Broad Street near the corner of Broad and Tulane Avenue.
