They opened up a Whole Foods market / grocery store in my city several months ago. There has been one in the neighboring city for quite some time but I have never visited. My husband and I are on vacation this week and I thought it might be interesting to pop in to see what it is like. We walked in on the side with the ice cream shop, the fresh foods, the salad bar, etc. We were very impressed with the displays and the selections. They had gelato at the ice cream counter and I have never had gelato before, so asked for a sample. It was very good (and we both ate a bowl of gelato before we left the store! The chocolate orange flavor was delicious). We visited at a time when the store was very quiet so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. It was nice to browse and see all of the organic displays. I wish it was in a better location - the traffic around there gets really bad in the evening. If it was easier to access, I'd definitely consider picking up some hot food for dinner now and then. Very nice store and memorable.
