Whole Foods seeking local produce vendors

If you're looking for an upscale supermarket to sell your produce to, read on: Whole Foods is holding an open house for potential local vendors on Monday, Feb. 27.

The Whole Foods store, Charlotte's first, is under construction at the corner of Fairview and Sharon roads. The store is expected to open this summer, Whole Foods says.

Buyers for the retailer's southern region will be at the Cabarrus County Extension Office from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to meet with local growers, sample their produce and give details on becoming a vendor.
