Whole Foods Market
New York, NY 10019
Village Voice's Description
Occasionally referred to as aWhole Paychecka by struggling blurb writers, this yuppie organic shopping revolution can be a real bummer. That said, itas incredibly convenient, isnat it? Whole Foods has a good variety of fruits and vegetables, many items available from local growers, organic or aconventional." The meat and cheese sections are well-rounded, even boasting a dry aging chamber for steaks. The fish counter is salmon heavy and less varied. The grocery isles are good for organic products like cereal and juice, while perhaps overreaching in other areas. (They carry over 20 types of extra virgin olive oil but no plain or virgin olive oil.) There is also a large salad bar, bakery, and coffee section. Itas not one-stop shopping for the frugal, but a great option for the main players in your dinner.

Tips from foursquare
Great selection of organic products and great selection of sugar derivatives for people with diabetes. I did a dinner and made desserts using Stevia. -Ed Cotton, Top Chef
