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 liked the 'no minimun order part' and i wasn't expecting any real deals (and there wasn't any deal). i called in the morning around 10 and stopped by while i was out a little after 12. The order was almost ready and i really didn't mind waiting. what i ddn't neeed was the hard time i got for 'not waiting until i was called'. i'll be sure not to come before my order is ready next time. it'll be easy since i won't be placing another order. I just feel bad for the guy in the back cutting the stuff. this would be a good place to go if you're in a pinch but i'm not likely to make them a regular supplier.
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.
Trader Joe's is magical... When you walk through the doors, you're transported to a place where the food is good, good for you, and won't break the bank. I can't recall purchasing anything here that I hated. And even if I did hate it, I didn't spend a ton on it so whateves. I love shopping here. It makes me happy. Who says that about grocery shopping?? A Trader Joe's customer, that's who. And hello, they have cookie butter...COOKIE BUTTER. I think I'm gonna get some after I write this review. Parking is usually annoying in this lot, but I usually manage to get a good spot.
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.
I love to cook and it can be hard sometimes to find the things you need , but I can find just about everything here. The store is always clean and the workers are always helpful. They have an amazing seafood section and great choices. They have a salad bar and a hot food bar. All kinds of seasonings and spices. They have one of the best cheese section I have ever see . It's not hard to fall in love with Whole Foods because they have everything!
I'm so lucky to live near here, as they carry an awesome selection of vegetarian foods and cruelty-free products. Their bulk goods section is great. You can get an enormous bag of organic oatmeal for $2 or $3 - the same amount that you normally would have to purchase in a package for $6 or $7. They also have a lot of yummy pre-made vegan food. The only thing I don't like is that some, not all, of the staff is sllllooooowwww to check you out.
The Trader Joe's in Midtown can be crazy busy on the weekends, so keep that in mind. But if you manage to go during a less busy time, they offer such a great selection of affordable, sustainable, healthy food. And cheap, cheap wine. The staff are always friendly and seem truly happy to be there. Plus they make a great stop-off on the way to Piedmont Park across the street. A welcome addition to the midtown scene.
This store is the very first Whole Foods that I ever visited. I used to frequent the restaurant for a fresh juice, hot breakfast or lunch. I like the open layout and fresh produce options here. The staff is friendly and helpful with suggestions and recommendations. The parking lot is easy to get in and out of and the store is off the busy Roswell Road so you don’t have to go out of the way to get to it.
Every neighborhood should have a small grocer for quickly picking up necessities!!! I love that CPM has local, seasonal fruits and veggies. They also carry local treats like King of Pops and Revolution Gelato (VEGAN!) The cafe in the back is very handy for quick meals, AND they have a great wine and beer selection. A little pricey compared to a big grocery store, but can't beat the convenience.
