We love that they support the community. They sponsored the annual Candler Park Easter Egg Hunt. My son and his 6-year-old classmate have their afterschool Friday "date" every week. The sandwiches are exceptional. The prices on bread from Holeman and Finch are so competitive, why would you even bother going anywhere else? Comparison: Baguettes $2.49 at CPM (from H&F bakery) and nice walk, the YDFM is $2.99, bigger but you have to get in car. Also you can pick up local resident, Kate Carter's Treehouse Milk. The cashew milk is a winner! Sit at the counter and watch a Turner Classic black and white on mute. You and fellow counter mates fill in the dialogue.
I am thoroughly impressed with the selection and, more importantly, the prices at Sprouts. They just opened last week and we stopped in for a quick visit to check it out. We weren't really intending to buy anything but the prices we so good, we left with a bagful of fruits, veggies and snacks. I know I'll be coming back here for more. My only concern is the parking and lot exit. I could see the driveway getting clogged and backed up. But that's the price we pay for getting such an amenity intown on such a small footprint. And I just love that it's not surrounded by acres of asphalt parking lot.
As most other whole foods, the food is wonderful: organic, fresh, top-quality, healthy and lots of variety- but prices are out of control. If you live in Atlanta, there are other natural food groceries and the farmer's market are cheaper. But if you live intown and are in a pinch, whole foods will work. Or if money isn't an issue. Their meats and cheese are amazing, and they have a large health/beauty section, as well as a stocked deli with fresh food that rivals anything in the area restaurants. Florist is great as well. Just don't look at the receipt and you'll be happy.
