I don't go here very often, but when I do it is a shopping for food experience. Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. You name it, they have it. A good place for vegan and vegetarian eaters. Good bakery. It is all good.

This Whole Foods is HUGE! The parking structure is pretty fancy and you are directed where to park by personnel and colored lights from the ceiling. We were a couple of out-of-towners looking for a bite to eat. We were curious about the original Whole Foods and we were overwhelmed with the selection, and choices of ready to eat food... More

I love this store for so many reasons... The Fruits, Vegetables, Juices, Craft Beers, and the people..... Since it's only 10 minutes from home, and on my way home from work I go there all the time. ORGANIC & NO GMO's.....

Occasionally you go to a place that overwhelms you. This was our first visit to Whole Foods Market and it's huge. The selection is huge...the quality is huge. We could shop there every day for weeks and get something different every day. My only regret is that there's nothing like it where we come from. If you enjoy your food... More

This is the Wholefood flagship, many times larger than any other with over a dozen different restaurants, wine and beers bars. Conceptually similar, but larger than Eataly in NY, Chicago and Italy. Everything we tried in several days, from sushi to pizza, from coffee to tacos was great.

There are more sections than I have ever seen in any other WF...BBQ area, beer and wine bar, their always yummy salad bar (this one on steroids... More

During our stay in Austin we came across the Whole Foods Market in downtown which was the mecca for natural and whole foods. As a UK resident I have never came across such a diverse and wide range of food and drink. As well as a shop there is a also a large buffet selection of food to help yourself... More
