Rescue place in the middle of the town

Not so big and a little bit chaotic.
But always a rescue if you need something as a vegan traveler.
Huge sortiment. I came always when I‘m in London.
Came back every time and are surprised by the good prices and variety of fresh food!

Great food choices

I chose from the „hot bar“ and ate upstairs. The food was delicious and there were many options to choose from. I would definitely come here again. Just one thing that bothers me is all the waste they produce with the containers even if you want to eat inside.

Pros: Many vegan options, Healthy and delicious

Cons: A bit pricey, Wasteful

Vegan rare finds

A lot of stuff at Whole Foods Market I cannot find anywhere else. Whenever I’m nearby I pop in and pick up something new. A good mix of savoury and sweet food.

Downside is they do not mark their fresh food bar items as vegan or veggie. So who knows if it’s vegan friendly?

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Good central location

Cons: Food bar not marked vegan or veggie

Many vegan options

We had a vegan croissant and pain au chocolat. Both a bit dry but still good. We also had a latte and a capuccino, both with oat milk. They don't charge extra for plant milk. And they give you 50 p back if you bring your own cup 😊👍

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Plant milk free of charge , Enhance usable cups

Not many vegan options for Whole Foods

Was excited to find Whole Foods while out and about and was hopeful we could grab a quick bite from their ready made section. They were not very accommodating, when we asked for vegan pizza they just shrugged and said “we would have to make it and there is other pizza out,” (okay?! We have kids with us!) The salad bar didn’t have many vegan items, and they made you go upstairs to heat your food. They had a good produce section- but do not expect what you find in American Whole Foods- these are more like boutique pop ups, with very condensed versions of their grocery store. They do have a larger beverage selection.

Pros: Organic grocery , Good location and produce , Restrooms if you need them

Cons: Not accommodating , Few vegan items on ready to go menu

Good for lunch or hunting down unusual ingredients

The taqueria is good for takeaway lunches, there is always a vegan option for main filling and cheese although the selection used to be wider pre-pandemic - bring back the jackfruit! Portions are huge and it's a decent price for the area. It's also a good place to hunt for less common ingredients, although I couldn't afford to do a full shop there.

Good selection but meaty & pricey

This store has a good selection of vegan foods, including hot foods and products that I haven't seen elsewhere. They have a great selection of confectionary and I purchased some sweets and chocolates that I haven't seen elsewhere. It is pretty expensive though. I also knocked off a star because it's just too meaty. There are lots of meat products in there including a fresh fish section (which you have to pass to reach the checkouts) and a deli meats counter. I think it's a good place if you're struggling to find vegan foods in the centre as there is a good selection of products, but I just find it uncomfortable browsing a shop with so much meat.

Pros: Lots of vegan products, Vegan products I haven't seen before, Sells vegan hot food too

Cons: Pricey, Deli meats & fish counters

Not too big but a good branch

Lots of options, fresh and then the normal stuff - a really good location. I’ve spent a lot of money here over the years

I could spend way too much money!

Love pottering around this store although I do hope they start to make more of a push in the vegan direction.

Whole Foods Market

Long before I move to London, I used to stay in Piccadilly when traveling to the UK for business. This Whole Foods was a staple for me. While it's a bit on the small side, they do have a good hot foods section and takeaway food in the cooler. They offer basic vegan staples here, but you'll generally find more products/options at the Kensington, or even the Fulham, location. The do have a good beauty and wellness section upstairs...easy to miss this since the stairs to that section are after you exit the check out registers.

Hot & cold vegan options to choose from

This is heaven for vegans. You get a bowl, pick anything you want from their range of food and pay based on the weight of your food. I took so much and it only cost me less than £10 leaving me filled to brim!!

Pros: Many vegan options, Love the option to choose from hot and cold foods, Space for seating, able to do grocery shopping!

Lots of vegan options

So many different things to eat here! There’s a deli counter, salad bar, hot food, sushi, pizza, cafe and a bakery. On the pricey side but mostly worth it for the good quality vegan food. Lots of tasty snacks and treats here too!

Bad experience

I love WFM, it’s one of my favorite places in the world, seriously. I got very disappointed by this one. WFM is not just about the food you find, it’s about the experience and the vibes you feel when you are there. I am used to enjoy it in North America. I visited WFM with my baby, and had to leave after 5 minutes. The lift to go upstairs was out of order, I had to bring my stroller upstairs... Once upstairs, there was no space for me and my baby, I had to sit and relax a bit as I was dead tired. The store was packed and messy. What a shame.

My favourite store

Whole Foods is my favourite store in the whole of London. I feel so at home when I am there.
I love their frozen section with vegan ice-cream, acai packets, frozen vegan meats and meals. The variety of vegan chocolates and sweets is also amazing.
And I love their freshly made vegan pizza, it's to die for.

This place has everything I need, but it gets way too overcrowded at times. Doesn't stop me from coming back though.

It's London & It Works ♡

I like the juice bar, greens, chocolate, beverage and raw fast food isles ie chips and vegan astronaut food. Double deck action is fun and cozy in the midst of your London life hustle. Whole foods has been a staple and a classic forever. Thank you ♡

Good for quick lunch

personally didn't buy anything from the actual market, but I hopped in for a quick lunch and enjoyed it a lot. The amount and price of food you get is up to you as you just take a plate and grab anything you want. Many healthy choices suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It's not really on the cheap side, but it's nothing terrible for central London.

Pros: huge selection, good comfort food

Cons: very crowded, quite expensive

Large shop, but very crowded

Part of chain.
A lot of vegan products available. also in the fresh counter, but no way I would buy tofu that is placed just next to animal parts (see photo).

the shop is very crowed, sometimes narrow isles.
Long line to pay.
Large terrace in front though.

Also didn't like their 'humane meat' sign in front of the shop.

Pros: vegan products

Cons: 'humane' meat
