Whole Foods' flagship store with a vegan cafe section

Grocery/Bakery/Deli

Grocery store chain specializing in natural and organic foods. Whole Foods has a wide array of vegetarian and vegan food. They also have a bakery that makes a variety of vegan desserts. Their deli offers organic salads, vegetarian and vegan entrées, daily soups, a salad bar, and a warm food bar.

Their brand name products, 365, include a huge number of vegetarian and vegan products and are cheaper than usual.

Located just blocks from where Whole Foods Market began as a small neighborhood grocer 25 years ago, the new store at the corner of Sixth Street and Lamar is the company's largest, at 80,000 square feet.

I've been shopping at Whole Foods Market since 1990. I love Whole Foods Market! I love that there are still places where you can find organic and good quality food. I wish they only carried organic produce. I wish they didn't sell so many sweets. I wish they made all desserts sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan. But I realize that this is my world, and I'm grateful I can find most of what I need at WFM. They have made it easy for mainstream to get healthier food and bring more awareness. And who am I to judge? Right? So I've shopped at WFMs in over 10 U.S.A. states and 2 countries. Thank you Whole Foods Market! The Gal @ ww.TheHealthyDish.com

I have mixed feelings about whole foods. They started in Austin, and I remember visiting their very first store as a little girl. That means something to me. They have amazing quality and variety of food. They serve gourmet delicacies, both prepared and packaged. They stick to their philosophy about everything they purchase. They carefully pick who they buy from, and support farmers switching to healthy growing methods. They treat their employees well. You can drink a beer while you shop for groceries. BUT they are expensive. Extremely expensive. Eating there is eating out. Their counter pasta restaurant, for example, is as expensive as a fine dining restaurant (without the tipping part). And they are a huge chain. I encourage you to think about where you shop as much as what you shop for.
