If you've ever been in a last-minute dash to get all of the ingredients needed for your Thanksgiving dinner (BTW, it's best to check out these turkey serving guidelines ahead of time), you'll find Whole Foods Market might be the first place to come to mind to grab what you need.

With endless options for produce, desserts and, in some stores, some holiday decor (like fresh flowers!), Whole Foods truly has anything you might want to complete your holiday meal. But the big question is ....

... Whole Foods Open on Thanksgiving 2021?

Here's the good news for last-minute shoppers: Whole Foods will be open for its regular hours on Thanksgiving in 2021. To check what the holiday hours for your local Whole Foods are, you can use the store locator on its website or call ahead. The Whole Foods Market Trends Council even offers a Trends Discovery Box for purchase (for a limited time only) as a "curated assortment of 10 products to represent each of the 10 trends" in the 2022 food forecast.

It's also worth noting that Amazon Prime members in certain cities have access to free, two-hour delivery, thanks to Prime Now.
