First Review by coloradopablo

beat bulk section ever - Edit

Kinda surprised with the reviews, as I have been to many WF across the country. It has lots of local items, the usual a, but the hands-down best bulk section I've ever seen. Sugars, spices, salts, vinegars, oils, flours, candies, and the usuals.

the new prepared food section is fantastic - Edit

With the addition of this whole new section, this WF is one of the largest (if not the largest) in the country, and it can get crowded. It's also not super cheap. But if you're a vegan, this is your largest selection of specialty products in town, as well as a good place for a dine-in meal. They have any sort of veggie 'meat' product you'd want, as well as vegan versions of mayonnaise, cream cheese, sour cream, cheese, etc. Huge selection of organic vegan products. The new prepared food section also has a number of little restaurant counters, most with several vegan options, and some really good stuff at the buffet, but it's by weight and can get really expensive. Their produce is also somewhat more expensive than a standard supermarket chain's, but you can taste the difference.

WFM - Edit

This is a nice Whole Foods - it seemed like they had more of the little food station/restaurants inside compared to other WFM's too, or maybe they just offered different things. An employee highly recommended the vegan chocolate cupcake and a vegan jam thumbprint (both made in house), but they were actually horrible. With that said, I do not recommend their baked goods. They did carry many vegan items though, and the stuff offered at the little restaurant stations looked very good.

*** FYI this store just reopened, not sure if they moved or just remodeled, but my receipt says "Whole Foods Market Pearl, Boulder, CO 80301"

Great groceries, vegan pizza by the slice! - Edit

I LOVE this Whole Foods. It is my primary grocery store. It is more expensive than King Soopers etc but if you shop regularly using their coupons and waiting for sales on the things you use most often, it's not too bad.

A few notable vegan options for quick lunches:

*Vegan pizza by the slice at the pizza counter! They used to use Follow Your Heart cheese but recently I've seen them using Daiya. (They also sell bags of Daiya in the dairy case alongside the other vegan cheeses. Score!)

*Brown rice veggie sushi

*A variety of soy yogurt flavors

*A Middle Eastern grab and go box in the cold case with hummus, stuffed grape leaves, couscous, and nice thick pita bread

*Thai tofu spring rolls with peanut sauce in the cold case

*At least one kind of vegan cake slice (also, Sweet and Sara marshmallows) in the grab and go desert case

*Vegan blueberry muffins and cookies in the bakery case by the express line registers

*A variety of vegan frozen convenience foods like Amy's meals and Amy's mini vegan carmelized onion pizza, Rising Sun vegan manicotti, and EVOL vegan burritos

They also have a good selection of vegan "meats" in the cold case and freezer sections, and more organic produce than you might think.

Pros: HUGE selection, Clean, bright store, Lots of express cashiers

Cons: Expensive, Can get crowded

Nice but quite overpriced - Edit

Tons of fresh stuff, all organic. They have many vegetarian and meat options, a salad bar, a nice deli w/tofu and other vegi options. The salad bar is priced high as well. Plan on over $10 for a lunch sized salad.

If whole foods would just get real with their pricing, I would shop there for groceries (instead of an occasional lunch). Around here, Vitamin cottage in Boulder or Lafayette is great, or the FANTASTIC new Sprouts that just opened in Westminster.

Pros: great organic food, centrally located in Boulder, Huge selection

Cons: High Prices, Parking difficult at lunch. small spaces, Snotty Boulderites
