Whole Foods Market Grocery Haul

I am so happy that you guys enjoyed my first ever grocery haul post I published a couple weeks ago! This weekend’s trip resulted in a Whole Foods Market grocery haul in the fabulous and trendy Ottawa neighborhood known as the Glebe. This is also the first grocery trip since I decided to go back to full vegetarian.

I was so excited when Whole Foods decided to expand their business and open more stores in Canada, including the one in my city in 2014.

Self titled “America’s Healthiest Grocery Store”, Whole Foods Market focuses on natural, organic and sustainable products.

What I like about Whole Foods are the perfectly stacked produce, the fact that you can find all the natural food brands in one store, the transparency (grass-fed? farmed fish?), the large meat alternative selection and the community focus.

The only con I can think of are the prices. For some items, such as the olive oil and ground coffee I purchased this weekend, the sale price is the regular price at Loblaws (and they are also higher priced). However, I do believe the sales on their produce is really good and worth the trip.

So if spending more money than you need to on specialty foods isn’t your thing, then avoid Whole Foods Market (unless you plan ahead and shop by sales). But if your like me and go because you truly enjoy going to a grocery store that has the same values and ethical standpoint as you, has quality products, is in an awesome trendy neighborhood and you can buy everything you need without having to visit a natural foods store than check out Whole Foods!

You won’t regret it, you’ll probably end up coming back as I have done.

Whole Foods Market Grocery Haul

Like my Loblaws Grocery Haul I want to share with you my Whole Foods Market grocery haul. Here is what I was able to purchase for $104.25* after tax.

*Yes the price gave me a heart attack at the cash, but then I remembered I had purchased expensive necessities I don’t get every week, such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil and coffee.

    I miss Whole Foods and fresh veggies! Also, forgot how cheap produce is in Ontario – organic spinach here is 5.99. Personally, going to grocery stores is a fun pastime for me, so I appreciate the grocery haul posts! If you ever want to try a delicious bread, most Friday's and Saturday's the WF bakery has this awesome bread called Seeduction – it's perfect dipped in that olive oil and a bit of balsamic reduction!

    I can only imagine how expensive it is to buy produce up north. I love grocery shopping to! The process of planning meals ahead, browsing flyers for sales and visiting my favourite grocery stores is something I enjoy doing. Will definitely look out for Seeduction next time I'm at WF! Thanks Sarah!
