Founded in 1978 in Austin, Texas, Whole Foods Market (wholefoodsmarket.com) is the leading retailer of natural and organic foods, the first national “Certified Organic” grocer, and uniquely positioned as America’s Healthiest Grocery Store™.
One of the most unpleasant things in life is trying to park at this store. Trying to shop inside is irritating as well. I view the experience as Buddhist practice in trying to become a better person.
Try the food. They've got any kind you can think of.
Fruits are local
Hot & Cold bar is great for lunch or dinner! and just step away from The Flats ;)
Their macarons at the bakery are simply the best.
Pizzas are now two for 20 every day of the week!
If you find something interesting, ask for a sample.
Try the cream horns in the bakery. Such a yummy treat.
Not the easiest place to move around in as a wheelchair user
Order pizza to go
Awesome popcorn selection...just sayin
There's now gluten-free soy sauce for the sushi. Just ask the folks behind the counter and they'll hook you up!
This store has a polite staff and they actually pack your bags correctly and with proper care.
This is a great place for client meetings: plenty of easy in/out free parking, snacks, coffee, wifi and when you're done, you can cross off grocery shopping from your list!
Endless cheese samples. What's not to love?
Paleo tip: Good salad bar and deli
Amazing shopping experience, although I'm not a regular. THEY NEED TO MAKE THAT DINKY "EXIT" ROAD AN "ENTRANCE."
They have "create your own" six packs - $1.99 per beer.
They'll shuck your fresh oysters for free! Wish I could tip the fishmonger.
Don't forget Friday Only specials. Good Deals!
Amazing bulk spice selection for frugal prices! Great beer selection as well
The fresh-cut pasta is a must eat!!!
Awesome food bars and bakery
Need fresh flowers? This might be one of the places in town to get them...easy
I love fresh bread and this is frozen dough, the best frozen dough in our area. Real fresh bread for the same price is at Albemarle Baking Co.
mexican wedding cookies, general tso vegan chicken & happy hour make this the best store around!!
Avoid deli counter at Noon. So slowwwww
Visit jan in the wine dept. and Nina in the cheese, they'll knock your socks off with amazing selections.
Amazing bulk food/spice selection! Only get what you need
I died and went to heaven with the hot & cold bar! LOVE it!!!!! Could spend a million dollars here!!!
The wine, beer, and cheese area here is awesome. The staff are always super helpful and passionate about their offerings! Definitely go check it out.
2 for 1 pizza on Tuesday!!!
love the sushi
You have to watch for sales, or your whole paycheck will disappear. Also, Sierra Nevada Torpedo is WAY overpriced; EVERY other store in Charlottesville will sell six packs for 8.99 or less!
Happy hour Monday through Friday 4 to 6pm. Half off full glasses of wine and $1 off pints of beer!
Awesome store made andouille.
Best place to shop for a Gluten-free diet!
