my closest grocery store - Edit

This is a Whole Foods that caters to both locals and tourists of the haight ashbury district of San Francisco. The produce section is adequate, but much smaller than it should be given the size of the store. If you come in looking for a specific lettuce or green, they might be stocked, out, or have just a couple wilted picked over bunches that no one wants. The bulk food section is also adequate, but should be larger given the size of the store.

There are many prepared foods near the produce section, and it’s hit or miss on whether they have many vegan options in the to-go salad section, I rarely buy anything from that part of the store. The baked goods vary wildly, sometimes the apple pies, for example, are vegan, sometimes not. There are almost always some vegan doughnuts. Always read the labels.

The organization of vegan refrigerated and frozen items is confusing...vegan cream cheese is next to non vegan cream cheese and butter, but then all other vegan cheeses are next to the tofu. Vegan frozen meat was previously all in one section, but now seems to be distributed among other sections. It seems like it’s always changing.

I go here due to convenience, but there are definitely way better Whole Foods that I have been to.

Pros: employees are helpful, convenience/location

Cons: soooo many instacart workers that don’t look up fr, organization of items, tourist area, can get very crowded

Very good - Edit

I was a little disappointed that so much vegetarian stuff containing dairy and eggs was mixed in among vegan items in the fridge, deli and freezer. When you sift through it a bit more, there isn't that many vegan items! Still there's plenty there for us and this place is great in terms of location and convenience as well. Beautiful fresh produce, nice staff.

Pros: Lovely produce, Big selection

Cons: the presence of meat section

Agreed with other reviewers Vegan Donut Temptation - Edit

this whole foods has a strange set up, I wandered around trying to figure out how the heck you check out for 15 minutes to finally realize you line up in the back of the store... Vegan donuts are on display everywhere be careful!

Bright space, nice layout - Edit

I've been to so many Whole Foods Markets I can't even count them anymore. This one, I visited today, and was rather pleased with my shopping experience.

It's a large store but not too big like some Whole Foods are. The store is brightly lit, and the layout is comfortable and well-organized.

Bought some treats from the bulk bins, grabbed some organic grapes, and was even tempted to take a vegan donut but refrained. Yes, this place offers assorted vegan donuts!

Whole Foods Market - Edit

I think I stopped at this location 4 times during my last stay in SF. My friend lives pretty close to it, hence the number of visits. This was also my first experience with Beyond Meat, the new faux chicken. They offer it in both the Sonoma and tarragon salads - quite tasty! I haven't eaten chicken since I was 5 so I don't remember what it tastes like, but I will say that the texture was reminiscent of the real thing (my friend, who eats chicken, agreed). They will also make you a sandwich with the stuff, so I recommend using the tarragon salad, add veggies - the bread was so good and the chicken salad combined with the veggies was delicious. This location also carries some of the best vegan donuts I've had (save for Might-O Donuts). You can find these donuts in their bakery section, I think the label says "POSH Donuts". The checkout line here is a little strange and the location is small, but they had so many good vegan items packed into one little store.
