Whole Foods Market
For all the wisecracks about its prices, there are few grocery experiences in Boston to compare to walking into the produce section of a WHOLE FOODS MARKET. The freshness, variety, quality, and globetrotting breadth of the offerings from both conventional and organic farms is thrilling. If you’ve just come from another big supermarket chain, you might imagine the sound of a heavenly choir at the sight of gorgeously arrayed, neatly stacked piles of fruits, berries, greens, fresh herbs, and vegetables. Where seasonally feasible, Whole Foods lets shoppers source from local farms, too — a welcome if pricey step in the direction of improved sustainability.
