Whole Foods is a great store for specialty ingredients. They have all kinds of exotic products, and for the price that you'll pay for them they better be exotic. Many Whole Foods are now putting food specialty areas in their stores where you can buy food that is made for you just like a fast casual restaurant. The food is quite delicious usually. But this is not the place to do the majority of your shopping. Everything here is more expensive than a grocery store. Whole Foods is great, but in moderation.
