Hands down the best deal at whole foods is the bulk spices - most inexpensive anywhere and they are organic. No need to keep buying a jar - just wash and refill with exactly the amount that stays fresh in your kitchen...

@Kim The salmon for sale during the one-day sale were wild-caught off the cost of Alaska.

Ok I am still confused, you mean to say some of the fish is wild? If they are caught and then put into big water pens or something, then that is not wild! I don't really care which it is but you could be clearer, my question is, how are they killed? I know how beef and chickens are killed but not fish. And I saw an article on Yahoo, that named things to skip at WF and most of the things you have listed are on there. But thanks anyway and I see now that the end you say the fish are wild.

I'm hoping that is a typo about the wild salmon. I won't be buying any either if that is true.

I am very disappointed to learn about the products I am buying from Whole Foods coming from China. I have read the response, but will take the time to read my labels now and buy only organic from this country, preferably locally grown. I know I am paying more at Whole Foods, but thought it was worth it. I will just be a smarter consumer now.

Fisheries does not mean farm raised! No need to be mystified. It can be...but it can also be an area for fishing. If it says "wild-caught" then the term fishery must be referring to an area designated for sustainable fishing. At $7.99 a pound, I wish there were a Whole Foods here. Google makes us smart!

I have full and complete confidence in all the fish I buy at Whole Foods. A good number of yrs ago I purchased salmon supposedly fresh, and 'on sale' from another supermarket. I made it that night and it tasted like cardboard. Fortunately, I live aprox 15 min. from a Whole Foods store. I went there the very next day, purchased the same variety of salmon. The difference was enormous! I have not bought ANY fish from any other store since!

@Paige Whole Foods Market makes a priority to work with local Farmers. However, due to a number of variables it is not always possible for us to work with local growers. I encourage you to reach out to the Jacksonville store to learn which products are sourced locally from those great suppliers you mentioned. I've included their contact information below. http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/jacksonville/

I think the real oxymoron here is using "Whole Foods" and "value" in the same sentence!!!

Calm down, people. A fishery is just a general umbrella term for "place fish come from", and could be a captive hatchery or a wild fishing ground. I appreciate the effort you're making to get the best quality and most sustainable fish, but it's important to research things that you do not understand rather than jump to conclusions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishery

The salmon comment is just confusing. Fisheries can also be defined as a fishing ground or area where fish are caught.

I find Whole Foods compromises on its value proposition in every aisle. A perfect example: The Back to Nature brand uses GMO grains in its non-organic products, yet Whole Foods carries these products. Worse yet, Back to Nature promotes GMOs and their safety on its website. Sorry Whole Foods, but I seek stores that walk the talk and that would not be you.

Along with shampoo and conditioners, I tried Organiques facial wash at Whole Foods. It's incredible and I won't buy anything else now... I am trying to go totally non-chemical with body care and I'm so glad I found this. Thanks, WF!

Wow! People can sure get riled up over fish. But I totally get that everyone just wants to be sure about what they are getting. Whole Foods IS my must have. I'm working to improve my family's diet. Whole Foods is helping me do that.

I have been to a fishery in Washington State and worked at a fish farm. Farms are just that farms where fish are grown. Fisheries are wild parts of nature that the fish normally would run and are counted and kind of kept track of and they only allow so many to be taken to keep the numbers in check. At least thats what I got from the fishery I visited. Hope this helps with the confusion.

Do you sell bentonite clay powder? If so how much does it cost?

Where can I find Bellis Perennis (English Daisy) to buy in Whole Foods Market? My wife needs to drink it as a homeoepathy tea. Thanks.

I'm looking for organic and safe hair colors, something without peroxide, formaldehyde, alcohol or any chemicals; maybe organic Henna products for hair coloring.

@CHRISTINE - Since our products differ, check with your local store to see what exactly they have in stock that would meet this list!

Hope you are planning to include Beekman 1802 (nearby Sharon Springs, NY) Mortgage Lifter products in your store. 25% of the profits from the sale of these products goes to help small farmers all over the U.S. They have a variety of other wonderful products as well, such as soaps, creamed honeys, cheeses - all would be wonderful additions to your store!
