We make trips to the Whole Foods Market a 3 generation family affair every other Sunday. My mom ,6yr old son and I. Its such a fun learning experience for all of us! My mom loves the different hot soups you offer and can't leave without some type of tea bags. My son loves corn and has to get some every trip! I LOVE anything from the meat department so that's my recommendantion! I love picking out something to cook and thinking of a way to make it yummy!!!!

Raw food entrees in the deli! We have a large and growing meetup group here in Tulsa which is focused on the Raw Food lifestyle. We would LOVE it if there were 2 or 3 selections to choose from like raw crackers and "cheese" dips, raw lasagna's and so on for our families!

I love your store -- the people who work there are probably the most friendly grocery staff I have ever encountered.... who asks their customer if they would like ice packed into their frozen foods bag... whole food staff does!!!! Love it!!! I am a HUGE fan of the "better 'n peanut butter" products, which you can find at whole foods. Yes, it is pricey for a jar of "peanut butter". But, I'd rather pay a couple extra bucks and enjoy a guilt free peanut butter, and not have to spend an extra 30 hour running just to burn it off!!! Thanks Whole Foods!

I was born on Mother's Day...So, I will be taking my mom a chocolate torte for us to endulge in together as we celebrate us. However, all of the gluten-free, casein-free products help me get through the challenges of feeding a child with food sensitivities and autism. When she eats well-we all have a good day; a healthy child is the best gift to any mom. Thank you for the many options to help us maintain balance within our home.

I am allergic to so many foods that it is hard to shop sometimes. I have found that Whole Foods meets my needs for Beauty with your top of the line shampoos and body washes, makeup without any chemicals with Miracle Fusions and I love the lipgloss too. The Tanndori Naan makes the best flatbread pizzas. My husband likes his with just butter on it. My daughter loves melted shredded cheese on hers. They are quick when we need something right before Karate. I love the fruits and vegtables. I also love the different varites of teas. I could spend a week in Whole Foods and find something else to add to my growing list of favorites. I love that it is close to where I live and the prices are reasonable too.

One fancy cupcake from the case, and a homemade card. That is all I want from my kids. If the card was decorated like a cupcake, that would be good!

You cannot go wrong in the cheese department, not only for Mother's Day but for any day. Grab some goat cheese, honey, toasted nuts and some dried cranberries and you have a 'milk and honey' treat that satisfies sweet and savory cravings. Add some iced tea and you have a lovely snack for an afternoon outdors with your loved ones waiting on you hand and foot. :)

I really like your organic milk and also the Wellshire roast beef lunch meat that you carry. My kids like your vanilla mini-cupcakes.

One of many favorites, whenever I shop at Whole Foods I try to leave with one or two (if my husband is home that day) Mozzarella, tomato, and pesto panini. They are sooo good, I bring them home and grill them and it is just the best treat for lunch I can think of. I love the sound of the cheese platter idea for Mother's Day, add a nice bunch of sweet, seedless red grapes, a glass of wine and a lovely bunch of fresh flowers and you have a beautiful and delicious treat. I hope my husband reads this for ideas before Mother's Day!!!

I love Annie's Organic Bunny Fruit. A great snack for the kids. I also love the selection of healthy produce, free range meats, and gluten free selection to bring healthy meals to the table for the kids. The healthy cleaners and chlorine free diapers are an added bonus.

I absolutely love the bakery! The presentation of sweets alone is enticing, but looking isn't enough for me, so I get the lemon tarts topped of with blueberries. Absolutely heaven...what a treat! And the bakery is always a great place to visit to pick up an assortment of goodies for special occasions. :)

My mom is a big fan of shellfish. She would LOVE the jumbo lump crab cakes over a salad of organic mixed greens tossed in a light balsamic vinegarette. And a bouquet of Birds of Paradise!

My mom loves granola, and we both love to bake. She doesn't have any Whole Food stores near her home on Long Island, so when she comes down to the Washington, DC area for Mother's Day we'll go to the Whole Foods and buy all of the fresh, wonderful bulk items to make homemade granola. Our favorites are the bulk figs and dried cherries -- they make the granola spectacular!

I was so excited when you opened up in my neighborhood! I always wanted a store that was fresh, new and good for the body. I love all organic and the variety you have is wonderful. I shop nowhere else. For Mother's Day I plan to make a gift basket for my Mom and Grandmother with a bunch of goodies from your store. Thanks!

Nancy's Organic Blackberry Kefir rocks my world! Other Whole Food favorites are Pederson's Humane Certified bacon - if only all meats were humane-certified! - and 360 brand CoQ10, which I take daily. Also, I like to cook up some quinoa and add goji berries just before the end, so they get all steamed and make the quinoa really sweet. I think Whole Foods should promote quinoa more - it's got tons of complete protein. I'm going to make some tabouleh with it right now!

While I love so many of the products at Whole Foods, these are the ones I bring home each visit... Yummy's Hummos with the Whole Foods brand mini whole wheat pitas. Fresh cut fruit from the produce department. Grab a container of berries and melon, or berries and pineapple to snack on or have your kids snack on while you shop! Local milk - I get the Morning Fresh Dairy milk in glass bottles every week. 365 Shampoo and Conditioner with the lavender scent. Greek olive mix from the olive bar. Store-made croutons. Strawberry Boston Creme Cake in the bakery (well, don't get this every visit, but it is soo good!)

I love Whole Foods. My son has food allergies and Whole Foods has several alternative foods he can eat that taste yummy. He likes to look at the cakes at the Bakery. Unfortunately, he can't eat them. He'll say, "Mommy when I get a older I want to come and get a cake."

Whole Foods, I love the frozen Belle Evans brand mozzarella chicken patties! My Whole foods store carries the best fresh meatballs too. The Frozen peasano bread and frozen sourdough bread are delicious and really complete a meal. I love the cannolis at the bakery. Did I mention the pink lady apples are yummy too?!

The perfect Mother's Day would be spent with my mom and mother-in-law at the Belmar Whole Foods - one of my absolute favorite locations (what is better than a great restaurant and store all in one!) I'd take them for a delicious and appetizing lunch at the sushi bar. Then we'd stop over at the coffee bar and have a cup of coffeee and on of your incredible desserts. Then, we'd stroll down your aisles of organic beauty products and I'd help them pick out a selction of products that will make them feel great and keep them beautiful and healthy. Hint, hint to my children and husband - that is what I'd LOVE for Mother's Day!
