It’s time to celebrate everyone’s favorite fall flavors, and we’re ready with the best sausages in town. Whether you’re shopping for Oktoberfest, game day or simply dinnertime, we’ve got house-made sausages with the highest quality standards and varieties you won’t find anywhere else.

Nix the Mystery Meat

Our sausage meisters are highly skilled in the art of craft sausage making. Like all the meat in our meat department, our house-made sausages are made from animals raised to these standards:

  • No antibiotics, ever!
  • No added hormones*
  • Vegetarian feed

*Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising pork, poultry, goat, veal and bison. We don’t allow them in beef or lamb, either.


Sausage Bun with Pickle Pepper Relish

Plus, our beef, chicken, turkey and pork sausages in our fresh meat case are currently rated to the 5-Step™ Animal Welfare Rating system. This is your way of knowing how the animals were raised for the meat you are buying.

Stop by your local Whole Foods Market and discover your new favorite variety of our sausages made in-house.
