intense spot, still have a great supply of stuff, but wow, it is crazy in there; crazy in a cool nyc way though. we go here a lot since it is close to family, but it is def a strange trip.

its in a high end mall; so space is very costly, which is obvious for nyc anyhow, but you know, even more so. just surreal, don't get an OG vibe from the store, but hey, midtown isn't the most rural spot in the world.

Pros: OG, selection

Good vegan desserts

They stock vegan creme caramels, vegan rice pudding and a good selection of vegan cakes - most from Candle 79.
This store isnt as big as the Houston road store but they do have quite a large seating area as well as a Jamba Juice.

Pros: Vegan Desserts, Good Selection, Location

We stocked up on "room snacks" for our trip at this Whole Foods location. It was awesome! Don't miss their homemade vegan chocolate chip cookies, and their rugelach. Oh so good! We got some fresh fruit, crackers, desserts, water, and other food to keep in our hotel room in between meals. It can take a long time to get to a vegan restaurant in New York so it was nice having these snacks handy.

Corporatization of Organic

1
Posted on 12 / 18 / 2005

I originally wrote the following about the Union Square Whole Foods Market, but my review is germane to all of these stores: If you think that organic means nothing more than growing food without chemicals or bad pesticides, then Whole Foods is fine. But if you believe that "organic" implies a way of being and living, a way of re-structuring and humanizing society, of creating a radical ecological sensibility, then shun this place at all costs. Whole Foods is a megacorporation; why patronize this place when there are so many locally-owned natural foods stores all over the city? Why buy "organic" produce grown on big agribusiness California farms, and then shipped across an entire continent (admittedly a problem for all health food stores in NY) when there are numerous farmers' markets (the Greenmarket program) throughout Manhattan where you can buy locally-produced food from a farmer you know? Why patronize a store that proudly displays the carcasses of dead animals, offered for sale for human consumption? When it comes to corporate "organic", the old adage "Think Globally, Act Locally" is quite appropriate.


Cons: corporatized "organic", sells dead animals, non-human scale business
