If all goes well, Clover's new products will be sold at Whole Foods Market.

Starting on March 19, customers can visit a mezze bar inside Clover Food Lab’s Brookline Village location. The experimental concept is being implemented for a possible collaboration with Whole Foods Market. The natural foods juggernaut recently approached Clover about selling its popular vegetarian fare in supermarkets statewide.

Meze or mezze refers to an ancient Middle-Eastern style of eating, with small plates composed of various spreads, dips, and salads. The Clover Mezze Bar selection will feature all house-made spreads, dips, and garnishes, and four daily salads made with local and seasonal ingredients from Winter Moon Farm in Hadley.

The Mezze Bar will be self-serve, with each item sold for $8.99 per pound. Clover is inviting Brookline Village residents to come test, taste, and provide feedback on the new idea.

Here’s a preview of the new menu:


  • Rustic Hummus
  • Silky Hummus
  • Middle Eastern Eggplant Tahini Spread
  • Brown Butter White Bean Dip (beans from Baer’s Beans, South Hamilton, MA)
  • Beet, Mint, Feta Salad (beets from Winter Moon Farm, Hadley)
  • Moroccan Carrot Salad (carrots from Winter Moon Farm, Hadley)
  • Spicy Black Quinoa Salad
  • House pickled red onions
  • House-baked or house-fried Pita Chips
  • Garnishes: Zaatar, smoked Paprika, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fresh Mint
  • Many of the items on the Mezze bar are vegan or gluten-free.

Bonus: Anyone who buys a meal from the Mezze Bar and fills out an in-store survey during its first two weeks of operations will receive a coupon for a free order of French fries, house-made lemonade, or a pour-over coffee with their next Clover meal. Score!
