Respond to Review of Whole Foods Market
Review: I've been to the Sacramento Whole Foods probably 10 times since it opened. This trip was mostly for my mom as she has newly diagnosed Celiac Sprue and Whole Foods is really good about carrying gluten free products. It was packed (Sunday before Christmas) but the staff was super friendly and more than willing to help. They also had a nice selection of mock meats. Yes, the meat and fish counters are unavoidable but I think overall it's a very vegetarian friendly company. They are really good at labeling items with ingredients and many items are labeled vegan so you don't have to guess if something has lurking animal products in it. They also have a decent selection of raw items (bars, bulk bin items, etc). I always get a salad on the way out and they had an awesome vinegared fava bean salad, yummy! The biggest downside to Whole Foods is the high prices. I don't do the bulk of my shopping here by any means but it is a fun place to get specialty items or a better selection of many vegetarian products. The produce is also nice but expensive. I get organic produce delivered to my home weekly so I didn't get any but I do like how everything is labeled very clearly organic or conventional. By the way there will be a Whole Foods opening in Napa next month!
