I have been to the Whole Foods Market several times, as the selection and quality of the food never fails. Split a custom sammie with a friend, or pick from several hundred choices of beautiful, delicious foods that are measured out to your specifications. The cookie bar is ridiculous, I always stock up when I'm there. I love the choices... More

We love this place. Our family of 11 finally decided to go organic. We found everything we needed and more we didn't...lol. There's something here for everyone. It's pricey but is much healthier, in the long run. Highly recommend.

This Whole Foods is amazing, and I speak as a dedicated Whole Foods shopper from the Northeast. The selection of fruits and vegetables was incredible, and the options for prepared foods were diverse and delicious. For breakfast we enjoyed smoothies and juices, breakfast tacos, pastries and more. It's a convenient walk up from the trail around the lake, so we... More

The way the produce, bread, cheese and meat is displayed is absolutely beautiful! My husband is from Germany and has high standards for bread, cheese and fresh produce and... More

This was the first Whole Foods market in America. It has a great selection of fresh foods and salads. There are many stations of food cooked for you including BBQ, fish, etc. I highly recommend the gelato station. My daughter got one with orange fig and whiskey pecan. It was bursting with flavor. Go hungry and enjoy!

Our trip to Austin was a stop over en route to other places, and so we hadn't planned on eating anywhere special so we nipped to the Wholefoods Market while one of our teenagers was visiting Waterloo Records on the opposite corner. Wow...Wow....Wow is all we can say. The selection of take out foods was mouthwateringly inviting and made it... More
