Whole Foods Offers Vegan Options - Edit

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!

Pros: convenient location, near other shopping, many healthy, organic options

Cons: parking lot is ALWAYS busy, lots of vegan junk food, hot bar labels need improvement

Finally a reasonably close location! - Edit

The closest location so far, opened last week. Being in Napa, it has a huge deli/bakery/preprepared foods section. It was gigantic. There is a coffee bar, cold deli, hot deli, taqueria, pizza, bakery, specialty chocolates, sushi, and a large by the pound self serve hot/cold deli bar. On Saturday night this section was totally packed. I got the self serve hot/cold deli bar, where there was an awesome vegan Indian style burrito (garbanzo beans and rice in a tortilla). The store also had a large wine section with wine tasting (I did not go through it, so I'm not sure how many vegan alcohol choices they had). Also, one side of the store was a large natural body section. Definitely a standard Whole Foods market, with some nice touches to appeal to a lot of the local population who would shop at this type of market.

Pros: Only 30 minute drive, Huge preprepared food section

Cons: meat section, can be very expensive
