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.
