Whole Foods Market Tour
I got invited to tour the new Whole Foods in Houston. If you’re from/have visited Houston, this new Whole Foods is a short walk away from the Galleria. It’s in an insane location!! I always feel fancy when I’m in the Galleria area and I always feel fancy when I’m at Whole Foods…so this is like double fancy feeling.
The store was beautiful. I mean, has anyone ever seen an ugly Whole Foods? Yeah no. We started the tour and I was amazed by…the escalators. The perspective of the picture makes it hard to see, but the escalator is flat so you can wheel your grocery cart down to the parking garage level. I was fascinated. Maybe you already have this in your Whole Foods, but I thought it was neat.
This is a picture of beer brewing things. I was obsessed with those doors. Are those for sale? I want them in my kitchen.
They’ll sell clothes, accessories, Tom’s sunglasses and everything else you could ever want in a gift shop. It’s great because now you can do your grocery shopping and birthday/graduation/Christmas shopping all in one place.
And lastly, I’ve heard a lot about this almond milk called Malk, it’s made here in Houston and is only being sold at this Whole Foods store. I can’t wait to try. If I’ve got my story straight, I believe the Whole Foods’ Forager found them at a local farmers market and now they’re in just one store so they aren’t overwhelmed with production demands…FUN!
