I used to shop there when I was stupid. With a bit more work I get stuff that's just as good for about half the price.

It is nice though: wide aisles, people aren't too pushy, no lineups at the checkout and they have good stuff.

Not worth double though.

It's quite pricey.....but they have a lot of organic meats, veggies, etc...

It's quite larger chain wise in the US.

The one in NYC's Union Square is the busiest supermarket I have ever seen.

And their To-Go food is self-serve. And TO DIE FOR.

So many good choices and really affordable.

I had it here recently and we have a shitty location.

Whole Foods is in the business of selling food that doesn't contain preservatives and/or other "harmful" chemicals.
For some reason though... they sell Coca-Cola, because the preservative in that shit is supposedly natural.

Whole Foods Customer Suggestion Bulletin Board

Customer - I am a customer of your herbal supplements and wish you would stock Mugwort. It is good for illness and also helps psychic abilities.

Whole Foods' Response - Thank you for your suggestion. Though I am not familiar with this item, I will have our herbal specialist research it, and if it is something we think our customers would find of value, we will begin carrying it.

What I Would Have Said - Look, moron. I know that your power crystals told you to go see the mystic healer down by the Walgreens, and the healer sent you over to the shaman by the Burger King, and the shaman advised you to set forth on a spiritual journey to the psychic over by the Target, but I think you're a weak-minded sheep who would drink a warm cup of my piss if New Age monthly told you it might make you less confused about your miserable life. I'm not carrying your stupid herbs because it won't make you or anyone else psychic. In fact, there's no such thing as psychic. In this world, there's just idiots and the people smart enough to make a few bucks off of them. You fall into the former category, but I'll still sell you my magical secrets to unlocking your true inner potential for $100.



Customer - I think that you should have dried peaches in the dried foods section and I think you should give tofu samples out.

Whole Foods' Response - We have not been able to find un-sulfured dried peaches that taste good. We will keep looking. And tofu samples are available at the salad bar.

What I Would Have Said - I think that a hurricane shouldn't have come and devastated a large portion of our country and I think our electoral process is patently ridiculous and I think all dogs should go to heaven and I think the world would be so much better if people could simply realize that more good comes from charity and kindness than war and agression. But am I scrawling down these opinions on a suggestion card so some minimum wage lackey can conjure up a half-assed PR response in place of offering an actual solution to my grievances? No, I'm not, so go back to pilfering the salad bar for as many free tofu samples as you can shove down your throat, you whiny hippie.

I shop at the one in Union Square, they are all over NY and growing. Here it's go there or shop at bodegas or freshdirect.com (which is the coolest thing also).

I love whole foods, the selection is bomb and you see the hottest women there.

Ive never seen Coke or Pepsi there, they dont even have artificial sweetener at the coffee bar. Ans asking for it is like asking for cheese on your sandwich at a Kosher deli.

its worth spending the extra dough...the food is fresh, they have the best "ready to eat" section, and the staff is friendly

don't be suprised if you happen to see a celebrity there....couple months ago Jerry Seinfeld was there.....and just the other day the girl from The Matrix was there, the one that takes Neo to the key maker guy, she had that tight white ruber dress on....HOT !!

Haha. The one by my house is called Zasty Market, but they still charge $15.99 for a pack of tampons and $6 for a box of Tuna Helper.

Maybe it's Coke CAN be sold there and i simply got the details wrong. I just know what my bro told me (he was a butcher there) - my memory isn't that good i guess.

It really seems like that sometimes. I gotta watch it when I go there or I'll blow my whole wad on one of the cashiers.

good old Zasty. I live 1min away.
Kids a few years ago peeled the Z off and stuck it back on it's side, so it said "Nasty market"
Unfortunately, they've been robbed 2x in the last 2 years. That's why the cigarettes are now in a crazy cage thing.

What's shit is that they property owners for that plaza are charging horrendous rent. The off-shore fuckers jacked the rent up by 85% apparently. Apparently, they've never set foot on the property and are charging the tenants from their offices in HongKong. How fucked is that?

That's why Zasty is rather expensive. :(
