I am not a Mom...YET....but when my Mom comes to visit me from Canada the FIRST thing on HER list of things that she NEEDS to do, is have a morning at Whole Foods with me, her "Darling Daughter", as she says. We start at the Bakery and pick out two of the LARGEST cinnamon buns you'll ever see (DELISH!!) ...and we usually pick out a few treats while we're there for my Dad and husband too (heaven FORBID that we come home empty handed from the Whole Foods Bakery!). THEN we head over to the COFFEE BAR for some of the BEST coffee you'll ever have!! Starbu*ks has NOTHING on the coffee at Whole Foods - it is SERIOUSLY fabulous!! So - once our bakery treats and coffees are in hand, Mum and I sit, soak up the wonderful atmosphere...and time with each other. It is PRICELESS. Thank you Whole Foods for being what you are to my Mom and I. Thank you for providing such amazing products - that are HEALTHY. Oie - and most of all...thanks for the memories that Mom and I have HAD...and will HAVE!!! xoxo Susie Q

What better way to celebrate Mom's than with FLOWERS! Weekly bunches are a great way to celebrate mom all year long. And it's so easy when you can pick them up at the same time you buy your groceries. Love that!

Yes, yes, yes! I love to shop at the Whole Foods Market in Durham, NC, whenever I visit my daughter. The must buys for me are fresh seafooc, locally produced goat cheese, many items from the Deli, especially the Tabullah. The Tabullah is the best I have ever eaten without a doubt. I am most impressed with the store service people and their knowledge of the products. When I am shopping for wine in the store I always get very good advice. However, in my opinion, you do need a senior citizen discount program.

I would love to see fiesta mole'. A seasoning that is a staple for a raw foodist :-) I also think the prices are high. I usually only go for specific items such as spices or a few vegan foods. If I was rich I would *only* shop at Whole Foods! :-)

My family and I LOVE the 365 brand Organic Caesar salad dressing. It has just the right amount of tangy. As a matter of fact, my daughter won't eat caesar salad unless it's made with that dressing. I love Whole Foods!!!

My cats just LOVE the 365 Cat Food. I now live in Newport - and there is no whole foods store here - but I always stop in when I am in Portland Oregon stores - to load up - and stock up on other Whole Foods items that we don't have out here at the po-dunk coast stores... specially - sauces and personal care products. AND I have the whole foods reusable bags ... so colorful ... I use them always !!

I'm all about yummy tasting, yet not overly indulgent desserts. I love Rice Dream's vanilla flavored "Rice Cream." As long as I have this I don't have cravings for the heavy conventional ice creams. It would be great if Rice Dream would create a strawberry flavored rice cream, too!

I enjoy the wide variety of gluten free products available. I wish the Whole Bakery would make some of their gluten free foods dairy free too for those of us who have to avoid both. I find the gluten free products to be well labeled and stocked. Thanks. Jan

It's hard to pick a favorite! I really love the seafood department though. I'm from the west coast and grew up on fish so being able to get fresh ocean fish is fantastic :) I'm also totally addicted to the 365 wasabi flavor rice crackers lol

I love your entire bakery department! The cinnamon breakfast twists are to die for! I also can't pass up the Burt's Bees section of the beauty aisle either... great chapstick and lotion. :)

I am digging the 1.5L bottles of 365 Everyday Value Electrolyte Enhanced Water. I'm up to 2 bottles a day and staying hydrated has never been easier, or more tasty.

I agree, quick and easy dinners are Godsends for busy moms! I don't have to feel guilty about giving my family 'fast' food for dinner. Also, love muscat wine, fresh strawberries, your GORGEOUS lillies, and that wonderful bulk cut soap--my faves are the lavender and mint oatmeal.

I've given a can of 360 mixed nuts along with a baggie of brown sugar and mixed spices, and directions to mix them all along with some melted butter and toast until delicious. Make the house smell AMAZING.

WOW! I am so inspired form all these comments. I am already drafting my next shopping list with notes from this comment section. Mellisa your Mothers Day sounds incredible, while I did grow up in New England I never went to the sheep and wool festival...I love the Bearitos blue corn chips too.

I L.O.V.E. Whole Foods Jasmine Green Tea! There is no other drink that is as comforting and relaxing as Jasmine Green Tea. I steep it in my tea pot with a infuser and the stress just melts away!!

I let my kids pick which fruits they want to put in our juicer. Then I let them help me make the juice. Once they are done, they are excited about drinking it. Since we started drinking organic fresh juice, the amounts of times we get sick a year has been cut in 1/2.

I love Whole Foods! So to celebrate Mother's Day, I would say to have a picnic outside to celebrate with my Mom and Mother Nature. I would get fresh carrots, celery and hummus. I would also grab some to go salad's and some Sweet Leaf Raspberry Tea. This would be a fabulous lunch!

I love you Whole Foods! Please come to Frisco, TX!!! Wine, pate, cheese, chocolate, baguette, grainy mustard, magazine, lavender bath salts would make me happy on Mother's Day.

Whole foods is by far my fave place to go grocery shopping! The atmosphere, the kind and knowledgeable employee's, the cleanliness of the store in general, the fab meat, bakery, and pre cooked sections... It's just a pleasure to shop at whole foods! Not only do I like going to whole foods but, my boys do too! They love to try all the samples and everyone is always so kind and catering to my children. They usually get a sheet of stickers given to them by an employee too (which they love) our whole family feels welcomed unlike many other stores. I would recommend on Mother's Day that all you deserving mommies hit up whole foods and treat yourself to some lunch, some new makeup, bath and body treats, some desert and some wine to take home! EVERYTHING that is sold at whole foods is of HIGH quality Plus, natural, safe and good for the environment. You simply cannot go wrong! Happy Mommies Day

I just had sausages from the meat department and they were very tasty! I love the raw food section and I'm delighted to have Hazelnut Milk at my Whole Foods and the Chocolate Rice Milk. Whole Foods makes being gluten, soy, dairy, sugar free alot easier to take! Thanks!

Lesser Evil peanut butter chocolate popcorn. My mom goes nuts for popcorn and I do too, so I think we'd dig into that. Also the store-made popcorn is amazing, too. Also, my mom loves escargot. And we can find it, fresh and good, at Whole Foods. Basically my mom is very particular with what she eats and you guys have it all, perfect for her!

The closest Whole Food to my area is about 30 minutes away. I tend to visit it while out visiting my girlfriend. I find that their Bakery, Pizza, and Gilato are among the best reasons to stop there for something quick and delicious to eat. They also have a nice buffet there to make a refreshing healthy salid. If a Whole Foods opened a place closer to my home I would definately shop there more often.
