The best thing about Whole Foods Market is that they cater to EVERYONE! My husband and I don't eat pork, and it's almost impossible to find (good) sausage that not in pork casing. Whole Foods is the only store I know that carries not one, but three different brands, and countless varieties, of pork-free sausage. I could go on and on about the special products I find at Whole Foods (the produce, 365 brand items, Burt's Bees skin care, and don't get me started on the baked goods!), but just knowing that I can find quality food that suits my diet is what keeps me coming back.

My husband and I love shopping at Whole Foods Market. We are big fans of the cheese department. We regularly shop at the one in Winter Park, FL and now the new one in Orlando. We learn more about different cheeses each time we go. We have bought some delicious fish from some of the wonderfully helpful clerks. I am especially fond of all the fruits and veggies that are purchased locally. I would love to see more herbs that are local. We shop at the Annapolis, MD store when visiting family and love the chance to purchase so many locally grown options in the veggies section, especially herbs and the great treat of mushrooms. I would love to see more options in FL. I love the bulk foods also. Any chance of supplying unsweetened organic dried cherries, not the sweetened ones! The food bar in the new Orlando store is FABULOUS! Might have to go for lunch on Mother's Day! Thanks for giving us so many wonderful opportunities to make healthy choices for our bodies and our land!!

My mother (and my father) almost goes to your store on a daily basis to get lunch. She loves the variety selection of healthy food at the store. She also loves the cute design of shopping bags you carry. I love the fact that you carry a lot of pet supplies. Out of all, I love the BioBag. I think your store is the only one carries the BioBag on Oahu. Other than that, I just love to shop your store because I know whatever item I choose is safe to the environment and to my family.

Mother's Day Whole Foods celebration would be cheese, olives, fruit, wild salmon (nobody has fish fresher and more yummy then Whole Foods) and Snickerdoodle cookies (the individual big ones from the bins). The two kids (ages 4 and 11) who do NOT eat adult food (see above) would get the chicken tenders from the takeout section (we would buy a lot so they have leftovers for Monday so mom does NOT have to cook for the picky eaters two days in a row -- that is a real gift). The daughter who is 15 would also get a side of Indian food from the prepared section since that is her food "love" at Whole Foods (got to keep her happy since she helps to babysit the two younger ones sometimes). Steve (the dad) would get to pick a half of papaya (his treat that makes him smile and keeps him healthy so "mom...me" is happy). And Renee (that is me ...the mom) gets to pick a gift from the bath products section (thinking shampoo, bodywash and hair conditioner from Whole Foods 365 store brand -- grapefruit is my favorite scent). Then we would go home and just hang out with great food and kids who are lucky to have the abundance of love in their home and lives.

My son loves Horizon's Vanilla milk in his lunch box so I pick some up on every visit and feel good knowing he's getting something he enjoys that's also good for him. We also stop by after church for coffee and croissants.

I'm a vegetarian on a special diet to combat advanced lyme disease and Whole Foods carries everything I need for nourishing meals. My doctor prescribed diet is free of caffeine, sugar, soy, dairy, gluten, alcohol, and corn. Such a restrictive diet can be difficult to live with, but Whole Foods offers a huge selection of fruits, vegetables, gluten free products, and many other things I can eat and enjoy which makes this diet tolerable.

We don't have a Whole Foods near us, but when we go to pick up our son from college, we always stop by the store there. I love the italian soda and we also love the Enjoy Life brand items, especially the cookies. Our youngest son has a few allergies and this brand is safe for him, and also delicious! As for what we'll do on mother's day...I think we'll go to church and then hopefully I'll get a nap in while my husband grills some dinner outside.

My Mom is just finding religion on eating well and staying healthy. Your store has motivated her to start (after 73 years) taking care of herself. God Bless You and thank you for all you do and all you represent. You may not know it, but you are helping me to keep my mother with me on this earth and I love you for that! Thank You Whole Foods!!

My product recommendations for my mom involve any of the yummy fresh breads and cakes made in the WF bakery. I'll be bringing her a cake for mother's day, but I'm not sure which one. I do, however, have it narrowed down to either a berry chantilly cake or something chocolate. Maybe I'll bring her one of each, and a special mild cheese, too!

My product recommendation? A Whole Foods in Spokane with ALL of your products available to us!! We are in need of a large, healthy, all-knowing market in which we can find anything and everything we need without having to drive all over town or ordering it online. I know our market is not quite big enough for all of your goodness, but I'd like to recommend that you re-think this idea. We really COULD keep you in business and you would be welcome in our neighborhood!

The perfect Mother's Day is a bed & breakfast weekend - at home! Pick up some yummy bakery delights, organic milk, fresh squeezed juice and organic coffee for breakfast. For dinner, get some nice steaks from the meat counter. Pair it with fresh produce to put on the grill and best of all - dad and kids cook!! (And do the dishes!) Heaven!

Whole Foods makes my life easier. How? Jugling work and home can be challenging especially if you like to give your family a home cooked meal. Shopping at Whole Foods allows me to use real ingredients and not worry about all the perservitives and additives. Thank you Whole Foods. My pick for a product that I enjoy on a daily basis is Allegro, organic, Breakfast Blend coffee. Yummy, smooth and just what I need to get my day going. My mom loves it also. This year for mothers day, my mom will get a basket of her favorite treats from Whole Foods including Allegro Breakfast Blend. Mom looks forward to this every year. Happy Mothers Day!!

I love to get the Attune probiotic chocolate bars -- both for me and my kids. They work well as an alternative to yogurt since my kids do not like yogurt or taking supplements. They are one of the few snacks that are really good for you and they taste amazing because they are chocolate -- the kids feel like they're getting a treat. It's the best way to get my children their probiotics and I've been known to throw one in their lunchbox since it travels well.

Not sure how I would get by without my daily trip to WFM. Picking up a tarragon chicken salad sandwich for dinner with blood orange Italian soda is my favorite. I then grab a bag of the 365 charcoal for my husband to make his dinner and have to remember to grab g diapers for the little one. With Whole Foods at our convenience we can all eat healthy.

What I like is that a lot of the 365 brand items are kosher. It is nice to find a store that takes the extra effort to get that. My favorite...I would have to say the produce, oh and the bread. I love being able to buy challah or other baked products that are kosher. (sorry but that is my focus) Their kosher challah is wonderful. That is my favorite thing, plus their fresh produce. That is why I go to Whole Foods! :)

One thing I love about Whole Foods is the bulk bins. As we try and teach the next generations about waste, these bins are a great example of how food can be sold without all the extra packaging. Being green is not only about the food we eat but the way it is made and presented to us as the consumer. Whole foods does a great job at this.

Some beautiful fresh flowers or a plant for Mother's Day will make my day!

Whole foods should have a section of the store for local in-season produce. I know the Austin and Houston stores have this, but the ones up here in Chicago does not. A great item for the store would be the most simple lotion - no fragrance, but doesn't smell gross, not greasy, all-natural, and very gentle for sensitive skin.

I think a good mother's day meal would be to make an avacado salad, grilled some salmon and serve it with asparagus

The 365 organic spices - they are full of flavor and inexpensive.

My mom does not shop for a lot of local fresh goods. So I love to buy her a few from WFM every now and then. We love the 365 Frozen Pizza Crusts (2 in a pack)! They have great fiber and gluten free. So good too! I'll stop by the cheese area, pickup the cafe ready-made marinara sauce, fresh mozarella and basil, and throw in some freshly smoked rotissori chicken from the back. And of course, we always have to grab a couple of cookies from the coffee bar area. There is so much I love there.

What a love about Whole Foods is the ready made meals: delicious crab cakes, a variety of quesadilla choices, different types of pasta salad options, and the always available salad bar. Nothing like matching a 5 minutes dinner with a delicious bottle of wine from the wine/beer department and a seasonal pie from the bakery. Its a bonus if they have upside down pineapple cake in the store. I also like the 365 brand options that are of a great quality unlike the other generic brands sold at stores.

Great food, flowers and exceptionally amazing kitchen staples! Whole Foods is definitely a one stop shop for everything. I personally love the sundried tomato and portobello mushroom salad and the zesty baked meatballs. The 365 raw agave is also great for teas along with baking and for a salty treat I love the santa barbara olives a friend got me hooked on. This is certainly a great place to roam about looking for new products and I love the Whole Foods eco friendly policies!
