Whole Foods store is a wonderful option if you are looking for a quick lunch or need to load up on groceries. In the four years I have lived in Napa, the number of vegan options (in Whole Body and the grocery store) have shown a huge improvement. That being said, even though Whole Foods is known as the first organic grocery store in the U.S., everything they offer is not necessarily healthy. But I will leave you to read your own labels! There is a whole row of raw and gluten free options. The Dairy section offers every type of non-dairy milk, vegan butter & yogurt & cream cheez. My favorite spot is the bulk section which is full of organic beans, lentils, grains, sprouted, raw seeds & nuts plus dried fruits and cereals. The frozen section even has its own vegan section that in addition to fruits & veggies, offers vegan pizza, prepared meals, bread, faux meat. The prepared foods section has a huge salad bar with many vegan options, vegan burritos, prepared salads in the deli and they will even make you your own pizza with any of the vegan options the store sells. The tofu section has many vegan artisan cheeses, probiotic veggies, seitan & tempeh and more faux meats. The produce section has lots of organic and fair trade fruits and veggies. Recently they added a juice and smoothie bar and they use agave instead of honey as their sweetener. There is even a vegan cupcake in their bakery. This is absolutely the best grocery store in Napa when it comes to finding vegan options!
Cons: parking lot is ALWAYS busy, lots of vegan junk food, hot bar labels need improvement
