    We're excited to have Whole Foods at this year's Brooklyn Pour craft beer festival, Oct. 6 at Skylight One Hanson in BK! We love their growlers and huge craft beer selection.

    Get the cheese grits at the breakfast buffet, super cheap, $1.29 for a small, $2.79 for a large. They are so tasty (and I'm from New England-- I'm not even supposed to like grits!!)

    Awesome salads and pasta at the bar. Skip the Indian food and any chicken entrees. Fresh bakery items. Also, try the freshly squeezed juices made with ginger and lemon. One stop shopping for food!

    Their vegan treats taste better than you'd think.Order an old-fashioned birthday cake with flowers on the top for a special occasion or try their amazing vegan brownies any day of the week.

    Best muffins that I ever ate. This is, by far, the best grocery shop I have been. Love the freshly squeezed orange or apple bottled juice, they're 100% fruit.

    Always crowded, but there is a huge selection of gluten-free food. Tip: Whole Foods accepts manufacturers coupons and also has their own coupons on their website. Clip, print, and save!

    Pay a little more money, but be guaranteed the freshest organic produce, no funny biz. Great for snacks on the way to Highline, Mercury Lounge or the UCB theater nearby!

    Great selection of organic products and great selection of sugar derivatives for people with diabetes. I did a dinner and made desserts using Stevia. -Ed Cotton, Top Chef

    One of my favorite spots for a quick lunch in the area. Shame it's always so crowded during lunchtime and after work hours.

    Certainly the coolest Whole Foods. Grab something to eat, stand in the automated line, and head upstairs. But before you leave, take a cart up the cart escalator (basement to ground floor)!

    Probably the worst whole foods in the city. always crowded, like touching elbows with a stranger crowded. I still go tho, the worst whole foods is still better than most grocery stores in this town

    If you don't have an obnoxious amount of groceries and are trying to avoid the crazy checkout lines, bring your stuff upstairs and the barista will ring you up!

    Many afternoons you can find BluePrintCleanse reps offering samples of the juice! Ask any questions you may have about the cleanse or having juices on their own.

    If you have less than 11 items get in the express line section. The line may be longer but it's much faster. If you get in the 11 items and over line... You are only hurting yourself.

    If you have the option go to whole foods in TriBeCa. Much less people. If you don't, be realistic about the amount of time you have to maneuver around people, displays, and wait in line.

    One of the busiest and most crowded in the city. If you're not in a hurry, it's good to shop here sometimes. Open late, too.

    Check out their candles and soaps section - pretty interesting for someone from Asia. Their organic produce is pretty mind boggling too.

    Arctic Zero is an awesome froyo option; get cookies and cream. 150 calories a pint and you won't believe it.

    If you were a happy person before you went in, you'll come out loathing the human race. We truly are a terrible bunch. The only catharsis is the smile you get when checking out.

    A smaller WholeFoods but good for top ups - we like the vegetarian burger patties which I haven't found at others.

    If you grab a cart downstairs then registers #3 and #10 are best because you can drop it off while the cashier rings you up.

    Americans spend just 9% of their disposable income on food and drink. That's much lower than the French (16%) and the Japanese (18%).
