They have lovely stores filled with wonderful goodies, but Whole Foods is so expensive. They charge what I think of as "Hawaiian prices" in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. What will their prices be in Hawaii?

And while they are expanding...maybe they could build one here in Pensacola? Please.


I hope Whole Foods won't squeeze out the locally established stores. That's the hard part of "progress" that I never like to see happening. Is it possible that there is enough demand for everyone?

We have Whole Foods stores here in North Carolina. I only shop there once or twice a year because their prices are expensive and there isn't a store that is convenient to my house. There is another store we have here called Earth Fare that's a lot like Whole Foods. I like it a little better.


Great post. I lived on the Big Island for 2 1/2 years and absolutely loved it!!! Glad I found your site. I live in Venice CA now and shop at my local Natural Co-op Health Food Store. Whole foods is not the way to go as far as I'm concerned. It's a gourmet superstore with organic food and nothing else. There prices are ridiculous and are extremely wasteful given their size. It's to bad because the Big Island, for one, is just fine with their local health food stores and farmers markets as far as I'm concerned. Keep us posted.


Thanks everyone for your comments. I have never been to a Whole Foods Market, but used to like Mrs. Gooches in Gardena, when I was attending art school in California.

I occasionally shop there but most of my produce is grown in my garden. I purchase the majority of my grains and beans online for a very good organic source. I purchase in bulk.

I invested in Whole Foods stock about three years ago. That was a good decision.


Who needs Whole Foods if more people had such a lovely garden as yours.
