The store is not what it used to be. Generous samples of yore are gone. Much of the produce is not very fresh, which can be explained by the fact that there are cheaper alternatives for organic produce now (Did somebody say Trader Joe's?), so the stuff stays on the shelves longer. Bakery has also taken a turn for the worse. Baguettes are of the cardboard variety, and somebody should tell these guys that croissants are not breakfast rolls with horns - it's a different kind of dough. On the other hand, pastry and cakes are still very good, and the meat department still delivers. On the whole, forgive the unintentional pun, as organic food becomes more mainstream, Whole Foods is just not a good value anymore.

When I recently visited Colorado I stopped at a giant Whole Foods in Boulder and was amazed by 5 or more nut grinders welcoming you to freshly grind up almonds, pecans, cashews, peanuts, honey roasted peanuts, and even peanuts with chocolate! I was thinking "holy crap this is amazing I didn't know Whole Foods had this!" Best of all, the almond butter was $5.99/lb, quite the steal for freshly ground almond butter. I visited this Whole Foods today in search for the nut grinders and specifically the ground almond butter. This Whole Foods only has two grinders, one for peanuts and one for almonds, but they were out of almonds. AND to top off that slight disappointment even if they did have almonds it would be freshly ground for $9.99/lb. No thank you! I was compensated, however, by a new choice of 365 brand's Almond Butter, 16 oz for $4.99. Almond butter lovers I think you know that this is an AMAZING deal. tl;dr: Whole Foods in Boulder has a better selection, this Whole Foods needs to step up their game and learn a few almond buying tricks from the other one in Boulder. Still a beautiful store though and always has great samples. :)

Fresh foods with a good selection of fruits and vegetables, with a nice selection of smaller-brand foods. And the only place in Madison I know of to get bacon chocolate. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!

Food is pretty nice. The hippies who own all Apple products are not. People just have this disgusting chip on their shoulder when they shop there. They feel like they are saving the universe

Overall I like the store and most of the workers. Some are superficial though. My worst experience has been with the tall big guy at the Fish department. I went to buy fish and was asking for clarifications regarding the different classification and he behaved like he had better things to do than talking to this not-so rich black woman, which is me. He was blatantly rude - rolling his eyes and huffing and puffing! Would not buy any fish from there. Come on... the fish and meat are so expensive to begin with. You'd think they'd be friendly enough to have people buy the fish so they don't have to sell stale fish the following day. Someone better talk to that guy. His attitude stinks! I don't mean the fish!

What a great place to buy groceries. Everyone is so nice, they will stay with you if you cannot find several items.

Too expensive, even considering the organic & other costs. Also real pain to get into & out of....both as a driver and a pedestrian.
