An addendum to my last review 2/17/2009

I still occasionally shop at the Newtonville Whole Foods. It is, in my opinion, much nicer than the one at Four Corners (Beacon and Walnut). Both stores do attract the same privileged clientele. I don't know how the staff keep their pleasant demeanor. Perhaps it is due to the 5-10% of the customers (of whom I am one) who know how to say "please," "thank you," and "excuse me." more

What is it about this place that brings out the worst in people 2/17/2009

This Whole Foods Market (647 Washington St, next to Marty's in Newtonville) is a lovely store. Yes, the prices are high, but you get what you pay for. Never, in any store, and I'm including places in New York, Paris, and other paragons of supposed "attitude," have I witnessed so many fellow shoppers with a chip on their shoulder as I have at the Newtonville Whole Foods. Wilson Farms, in Lexington, another spot with a supposedly "entitled" clientele, has been, in my experience, a paragon of highly-civilized, well mannered people. Many of the Newtonville Whole Foods customers walk around as if they are driving their Lexus, BMW, or Volvo SUVs - that is, either in a haphazard, "get the hell out of my way or else" manner or, just as bad, will stop in the middle of the aisle and chit-chat with their "friends" (I'm surprised the arrogant Volvo drivers who drive at 50 in a 30 zone and then stop in the middle of Walnut or Beacon St - if you have spent more than five minutes in Newton, MA, you KNOW exactly what I am talking about!, would lower themselves to having "friends," but that's another tangent), haughtily indifferent to anybody who wishes to get by. In early 2007, two months after buying a brand new Subaru Legacy ($24,000), I was in Whole Foods' parking lot early on a Saturday morning. A yuppie sprog getting ready to get into his mother's Land Rover placed his juice can on the trunk of my new car. I said, very politely, "excuse me, would you please take that can off of my car?" The child apologized but the mother got all hissy. "You must have an easy life if you get bent out of shape over a can of juice on your car, blah blah blah" and finished her rant with accusing me of being "anti-Semitic." Newton is roughly 50-60% Jewish. This was a Saturday morning, so I quickly retorted "if you were so religious, you'd be at shul right now!" She was speechless and quickly got into her Suburban Assault Vehicle and sped away. more

Great selection 4/3/2006

I went to the whole foods in downtown Boston and it was amazing. This is a great place for lunch because they have so many options. I think they have three different bars which include salad, comfort foods, Asian foods, Indian foods, and a lot more. I would highly recommend this place to any looking for a take out lunch in downtown faneuil hall area. more

Good Place to Find a Healthy Snack 3/20/2006

This Whole Foods Market is a good place to find a healthy snack. Whenever I was craving a good health bar, I would stop in. They have a great selection of organic snacks and fresh fruits and vegetables. I occasionally stopped in for a salad as a meal, and their salads were able to tide me over for lunch or a quick dinner. I wouldn't shop here for a major shopping trip, but stopping in for this and that proved successful. more

Not the best branch, but still excellent. 3/18/2006

I think the best Whole Foods is the River Street/Cambridge branch, but the Newtonville store is also good. My main complaint is that they rarely change the prepared foods selections, but the salad bar here is very good. The pizza and sandwich bars are also very good. I think the produce is overpriced and the quality not that great, but it's still better than most other stores in the area. Bring your own bag, save the environment, and get a nickel back. more
