Whole foods is a great place to shop, especially if you are looking for obscure ingredients. On a recent trip I spied several different types of quail eggs, multiple whole fresh fish, and some of the best looking (and interesting) produce I have ever seen. The prepared food section is also awesome. My husband and I chose to buy a prepared meal for New Years Eve rather than going out to a restaurant. It is pretty pricey, but so worth it. The staff is wildy friendly (something I haven't seen in a grocery store ever!), and everything is fresh and beautiful! If I had enough money, this would be the only place I would shop!
