Not as good as it could be

Posted on 06 / 11 / 2015

The Baltimore area Whole Foods Markets are lackluster in their vegan offerings compared to WF Markets in other areas I've visited. I've heard they're planning to expand this one, so maybe it will get better. At any rate, it is still better than the one in Mt. Washington (north Baltimore), which is by far the worst Whole Foods I've ever set foot in. That store is a terrible place to shop for many reasons, but I'll save them for a review of that specific store.

The hot bar here almost always has several vegan options, usually enough to make an entire meal. The cold salad bar also always has some vegan salads in addition to regular green salad fixings. I do find it irritating, though, when they do something like put feta in an otherwise vegan tofu pasta salad. Duh.

There is also a fresh sushi case, with vegan sushi and dumplings made by in-house sushi chefs.

The fresh bakery case usually has one or two vegan cookies, lately this has been chocolate chip and gingerbread, both of which are good. They also try to stock at least one vegan pastry, either a muffin or scone. All of these are good and recommended. You can also get vegan bagels and rolls (I recommend the pretzel buns!). In the dessert case on the opposite side they stock a line of vegan baked sweets from Sweet & Natural Cafe, a soul food restaurant in the DC area. The cake slices are good (especially the sweet potato one), but they're heavy on the margarine and sugar so I don't advise eating an entire piece at one sitting.

I do have an issue with the grab-and-go lunch case here. They used to carry meals from another local vegan soul food caterer, as well as some local vegan Mediterranean packaged food. The soul food offerings were particularly good, and I'd occasionally get one if I hadn't brought lunch that day. Then suddenly they dropped almost all of their local food offerings and replaced them with sub-par Whole Foods items. It was disappointing at the time but not entirely unexpected. Items routinely disappear from the shelves here, never to return, just like they do in every other large grocery chain.

I've noticed a general trend in these two WF stores (and probably nationwide) toward stocking WF brand products over other brands. If I was already buying the WF brand then it's not such a big deal, because it's usually cheaper and just as good, but this isn't always the case. But it's less annoying now that I don't do my main grocery shopping at WF.

Pros: some vegan options, convenient
Cons: often busy, stock is constantly changing

this Whole Foods is kind of small, but they have some vegan options at the buffet that taste quite well (specially when you're too lazy to cook).

The superior Baltimore Whole Foods

This is a pretty standard Whole Foods (so you can expect the aisles and checkout to be crowded, but great products with vegan offerings clearly labeled). It does have a great selection. As far as locations in the area, this is the best one - the bulk bins have far more offerings than the Mt. Washington Whole Foods and the store is more spacious.

Pros: It's a Whole Foods, Good bulk bins, Bigger than Mt. Washington location
Cons: Crowded, Parking is annoying

Small, unfriendly, vegan food but no vegan baked goods. People are always in a rush and bump into you because it is so small but everything vegan is labeled.

Pros: Vegan
Cons: Small, Pricey, Rude

The Whole Foods market is clean and has a comprehensive inventory of organic and non-organic foods. Love just going in to browse.

Pros: excellent food, healthy options, friendly staff

I love this chain of grocery stores-albeit a little less than before due to some media comments made by the owner. However, they always have my favorite brands available.

Pros: brand accessible
Cons: pricey

This review does not require much content. This is a Whole Foods Market. It is big. It has a vast selection. It is fantastic for those who live in Baltimore and those visiting. There was nothing exceptional about this Whole Foods, but it certainly, at least, meets the standard.

Pros: Great organic bananas (May)
Cons: Selection of veggie dogs lacking
