    We have one here in my home town. Nice browsing, prices are steeeeeeeeeeeeep, even by Westchester County pricing. LOL

    Produce Galore (now defunct) was much better

    Well I was there this morning too. The stilt lady with the bowl of fruit on her head was the biggest thrill. Saw a few bikes and several old men too. Left quickly since the ran out of free Whole Foods bags.

    Here in Denver both Sprouts and Trader Joe’s have been on building sprees, each with four or five new stores in the past year or two. It’s wonderful having all the competition.

    There’s a new artesian or boutique market coming to the DC area named Streets market its on Pershing Drive. Check it out Steven.

    My personal experience with artesian groceries has been that they combine the vast selection of goods with the same level of customer service that was last available in the Soviet Union, all for the same cost.

    Here is (in my experience) a typical example of the core constituency of your average boutique market. The young lady in this video reminds me of a former flame, both in outlook and in her appearance, except for the fact that her eyes are a different color.

      She became a lawyer to help people.

      I had a friend in college who I happened upon 20 years later. She had divorced her husband, who we had double dated with a few times. The experience was so bad for her, she decided to go to law school so she could help women in divorce. After years of law school, passing the bar, and getting into private practice, she determined that women in divorces were whiny bitches. She was then representing drug dealers.

    Man, you sure get orgasmic over Whole Foods. You must have gotten a good deal on their NASDAQ traded stock. Like it or not, their first concern is their shareholders. And getting people like you excited over their product is just playing to the shareholder. Welcome to capitalism (feel good capitalism to you).

    • I always appreciate progressives reminding me what not to enjoy. Sometimes I get so confused and think that we were put here to enjoy life.

      • duke1959 says:

        A: Your straw man accusation of me being a progressive is unfounded. B: You say just enjoy life – I have seen the most deranged people enjoying their life – I don’t think that is what you mean. Production. A man enjoys life when he produces for the good of himself and the good of others. Wow, just talked myself into a corner, eh? Whole Food produces for you, and for them… Maybe I am distraught that I can’t afford to shop there. Maybe I am upset at myself that you found a way to peddle the same beliefs that I have and earn while doing it and I can only vent to space. I won’t bug you anymore, unless you call me a progressive again!

        P.S. I am a true follower of John Galt, if you know what I mean.

        • You think that I am being paid to do this? ROFL

        • duke1959 says:

          No, I meant that you had asked for donations and apparently got them.

          Funny that I almost posted a John Lennon spoof piece on another thread only to find out that you beat me to it!!! Mine started: Imagine there’s no Global Warming….It’s easy if you try!!!!

          I think that I am actually starting to appreciate you!

    • NoMoreGore says:

      Oh I see now…. this whole idea of giving people something they want at a price they find acceptable is all wrong. I’ve been so deceived! They should build million dollar stores where they offer bales of (local!) alfalfa in trade for a nice folk song played on your six string. That’ll pay the rent. Maybe part of the store can be an area where employees can offer arts and crafts for a few pence since the store won’t be paying them any of that evil capital.

    • Otter (ClimateOtter on Twitter) says:

      And I will BET most of their shareholders are middle-class families trying to make ends meet. Welcome to Reality (feel good about taking care of the family, to you)

  10. CapitalistRoader says:

    My personal experience with artesian groceries has been that they combine the vast selection of goods with a level of customer service exceeding any chain grocer, along with prices 10 to 20% less than those chain grocers. Yeah, Whole Foods produce is pricey but the upstarts challenging WF – in my market Sprouts, Trader Joes, Natural Grocers – have prices that beat the heck out of Kroger/Safewy/Albertsons with the same or better quality. And I have to think that WF got the ball rolling for these new competitors.

    • Everything I bought there last night was 33% – 50% cheaper than at any other store in town. Their prices for organic food are much lower.

      • CapitalistRoader says:

        I think it might depend on the location. When I work in San Francisco I find that Whole Foods’ price is as low as or better than Safeway, whereas in Denver WF is considerably higher. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking WF. They’re great stores with outstanding products and great customer service. But they’re targeting upper middle class and above which I’m definitely not. BTW, I do buy dry spices there because I’m compelled to patronize a store whose top guy says “Business and capitalism have been great forces of good in this world, Business has created the prosperity that has basically lifted humanity out of the dirt.”

        • Send Al to the Pole says:

          Whole Foods had the health plan that should have been the model for the country. It combined a Health Savings acct with a high deductible plan. It was really working for them. I think it is this year all corporate plans get hacked by Obunglecare.

    Some shots of the orgasmic smorgasbord to be found in Whole Foods

    I hafta drive 60 miles to the nearest one.

    • Truthseeker says:

      You have real cheese in the US?

      I am stunned …

      • Quiet Desperation says:

        Wisconsin, baby!
        Although I do default to a fine English cheddar for homemade mac and cheese. Blame Alton Brown for that one. It just melts better.

      • Send Al to the Pole says:

        The picture doesn’t do it justice. That Cheese bar is less than 1/2 the size of the one in my local Whole Foods. They will have 25 European triple creams alone. This format of bountiful excess sells very well. People love having the selection. The trick is keeping it fresh.

        You can go to Fred Meyer and get a processed crab cake about the size of a sand dollar, and maybe 1/2 inch thick for a buck. The ones in Whole Foods are hand made, with big chunks of crab about 4 inches wide by 2 inches thick, and they’re $8 each.

    • Robertv says:

      It looks like a normal spanish supermarket to me. Are those fresh oranges? Strange .On the northern hemisphere, the orange is a fall, winter product. Maybe in the US you harvest them earlier than in Europe.

      I think I just gained 14 pounds viewing those photos. And, I can’t wait for lunch….
