I love shopping at Whole Foods. Sure, it's spendy, but that only means you don't buy everything there. Whole Foods is where you want to get your produce, meat, and wine. They have an excellent selection of all of the above, and though you won't get bargain basement prices, you'll get EXCELLENT quality.
I also love going to Whole Foods for lunch. They have a huge variety of hot and cold items and the ingredients are wholesome and yummy.
