This is so... mean. All that food - AND IT'S SO FAR AWAY!!

Damn you, Canada. We need more Whole Foods everywhere!

I'm surprised you got away with taking so many photos in there - they are generally not photo friendly in their stores. It was fun to see all the pics though, because I know exactly where everything is in the store. I miss not being in class, because it means I don't get to pop in on my way home from school to browse.

Meg said... [reply]

Oh my. You did such an amazing job of capturing the overwhelming plethora within whole foods. Yum!

This was the first Whole Foods I ever went to! (I live in Chilliwack).
I'm heading to Van this weekend for the fireworks, I might just have to make another pit stop!

That WF is huge! Mine doesn't even have a juice bar. :( But it does have an awesome tea wall. I love all the different types of tea that WF carries!

Ahhhhh, I love Whole Foods. I wish they had one anywhere near me. I won't get to go again for probably a year ... le sigh.

Ohh, I LOVE your nail polish! Funny that it matches the packages you held up too! Haha!

I wish my WF's had a trail mix station...wait, no I don't! I'd get myself into serious trouble..."hey guys, can you just back my car up to the bar??" Lol
