Whole Foods: Everything I Hoped And More

I've taken a couple tours of the Whole Foods lately (on 161 near sawmill), and I'm impressed. Here are some highlights:
1) Glorious Fresh Organic Figs
2) Over 15 different kinds of loose organic eggs (you thought the eggs at northstar were delicious...try these; and the egg carrying baskets are sooo cute).
3) A ridiculously impressive spread of mushrooms (I recommend the lion's mane, lobster, blue oyster, and hedgehog)
4) Fresh roasted nuts (including curried almond and butterscotch walnut)
5) A huge selection of interesting wines under 10 dollars.

Go there and be amazed.

And,the new Whole Foods is right next to a lovely Indian market (on 161) and the Trader Joe's (over on Sawmill) so don't forget to stop there too.

I will still be regularly shopping locally in the Sho No, but damn if the Whole Foods doesn't make me want to drive to the suburbs. And, that's saying something.


  • Yes, I will add to the list of Whole Foods praises:

    gluten-free scones!

    triple cream goat brie!

  • I found it rather peculiar that they had so many pictures of local farmers and the benefits of using local produce on the walls, and yet I could not find a single produce item of local origin, with the exception of the the loose eggs (which are in the procude section).

    Although I will admit that their produce section is lovely to behold, and there is a very nice person behind the berry/grape/fig stand who will feed you samples and wrap your little crates of produce.

  • The fresh "roll" butter comes from wooster ohio, and is ridiculously tasty. And, I did see local corn and tomatoes last time I was there.

    That said, I do realize that Whole Foods is at least in part an elaborate marketing scheme to get lefties to pay a large corporation too much money for their food. And, it shouldn't be seen as a replacement for the farmer's market. But, well, I'm still a huge sucker for it. I mean it's just sooo big and pretty.

  • I must admit...these days I'm underwhelmed by whole foods. Too much expense...not enough local. It's all farmer's markets and CSAs for me baby.
