Whole Foods Hires a Veggie Butcher, Among Other Fancy Additions
From asparagus water to gentrified versions of chopped cheese sandwiches, Whole Foods sure has sold its fair share of eyebrow-raising products. The latest is a new produce butcher that will be on-hand to clean, trim, and custom-cut vegetables and fruit for any frou-frou platters or crudités.
The produce butcher has caught the attention of skeptical shoppers who are used to their butchers dealing in, well, actual meat rather than cutting up greens:

@TheRickWilson Whole Foods made "asparagus infused water" a thing ... so yeah they can make "produce butcher" a thing ...

That’s not the only addition to the Bryant Park Whole Foods: The store also will be selling fresh tahini, lobster rolls, wine and beer on tap, and Detroit-style deep-dish pizza.
