This neighborly location is where my wife and I get our veggie shopping. It's WF's original California location. The people are nice and their products, superb. They recently remodeled their self-service/sandwich/burrito area. Go for a visit!

A really good WF outlet,although a bit smaller than some others. But service is excellent, the meat and fish offerings quite fresh. You can always trust WF and whether the products are organic as labeled.
