Whole Foods

Against all the stigma attached to its very recent opening, I went on a major tour of the new Whole Foods at Cambie St. Despite what some call the “Whole Pay Cheque”, I find that this grocer is my favourite one-stop shop for all the items I am proud to serve my friends and family. In saying this, I have a few issues with their pricing, but these days nothing comes without a price, and unfortunately for the common consumer, eating “well” (meaning organic, sustainable and local) comes at an even higher price.

Until May 5, Whole Foods Cambie is having fantastic sales on great quality items: Lesley Stowe’s Rainforest Crisps 2 for $10 (normally $7.99/bx); strawberries 2 quarts for $6; blueberries 2 pints for $5.

  2. We found the pricing to be a little off the hook as well. To be honest, companies like this should ‘know better’ in times like this. Impressive space…not impressive markup. Great fish eye photo!
