"Harry's Farmers Market debuted in the Atlanta area in 1987 when founder Harry Blazer opened the first megastore in Alpharetta, Ga. It was a quick success, becoming profitable within the first year. Known for fresh, delicious foods, produce and gourmet products, the company expanded, opening two additional locations in Gwinnett and Cobb, each more than 100,000 square feet. The company went public in 1993 and launched a separate chain, Harry's in a Hurry, a small specialty store that was not a part of the Whole Foods Market acquisition.

"Whole Foods Market acquired the three Harry's Farmers Market perishable megastores, a distribution center, a commissary kitchen, bakehouse and office facilities in October 2001. " [1]
