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.

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!
