Whole Foods city market

We like Greelife although we stray to the new Whole Food Location. We still like the staff and patrons at Greenlife.

We discovered this grocery shortly after it opened in 2004 or so. Excellent neighborhood store which eventually became a Whole Foods Store. They have not lost their charm.

Perfect store for natural, vegan and hard to find local items. Must try their vegan cookies. We had just visited Green Man Brewery and found one of their new brews there, unfortunately now back home cannot!

For several years, Greenlife was alone then joined by Earth Fair providing fresh, organic, bulk and local foods, deli and medicinals. But now a block north on the same side of the street there is a new Trader Joes and a Harris Teeter (providing all of the above but a broader range of choices less healthy as well) Greenlife now...

Really do like the breakfast buffet and the fact that they don't stop serving at an early hour. Food is very good, always hot and fresh. Crowd can be daunting at certain times but that's a sign of good food, good value. Wish they would remodel though.

This place was recently bought by Whole Foods and you can tell! Great options for all kinds of diets and we were especially gaga over all of the vegan desserts available for purchase! Awesome grocery store for those who lean towards healthier diets such as organic, GF, vegetarian/vegan, or natural foods.

I get a protein and two sides at least a couple of time a month. With food allergies, I have to read the ingredients carefully. I always have choices. It is good food at a reasonable price.
