So excited to visit the Wholefoods Mothership. I am a huge fan of Wholefoods, and whenever I travel to the States I make it a mission to track down the nearest Wholefoods. I was super excited to discover that this was the original Wholefoods, so had to come here on my recent trip around Texas. This place is huge, and... More

This is Whole Foods Market flagship store. As fans of their supermarket concept of organic, local and responsible sourcing this was our first stop on a day trip to Austin, TX. The place is large, bright and the staff friendly and hip. Worth the trip not just for grocery shopping but even to have lunch here.

Sometimes I come here looking for a prepared food item and cannot find anything the looks appealing. The food tables have old looking food that has been sitting out for a while. There are a lot of clam shell plastic things. If you want healthy, organic, and local, go to the local coop, Wheatsville. If you want lower prices, organic... More

I recently took my daughter ice skating here on our mini-vacation. I love how easy the parking is here. They definitely planned well when the built the location and included the ground floor & underground parking. The ice skating area was clean and well managed. The day we went it was sprinkling outside, so it was hard to find a... More

There is a large food court in Whole Foods where you can chose from a variety of dishes, and to tell the truth, I'm always pleased with the variety of selections available there. Today however, my 7 year old granddaughter was with us, and we wanted to practice eating out, at a sit down place. This flagship store has several... More

This has an amazing atmosphere, is very clean, the staff are excellent as is the food and its choice. When I visit family in Austin we always come here many times and enjoy a great time either inside or outside in the sun or shade. We usually eat organic and it's great to have such a choice which we do... More
