So, I thought Whole Foods was coming to Southie, but it is actually at the very edge of the South End. No big deal though. It is VERY close to where we live and I am pretty excited by that. Not only is it close by, but it is much larger than the rest of the stores in the city and fancier :).
We live on a budget when it comes to groceries, but there are some things we love to get from Whole Foods and some things like my probiotic, I have only been able to find here. And their prepared foods are second to no other grocery store. Where else can you get a grilled salmon and veggie bowl like this while picking up eggs and bread? Yum.
As nice of a store as it is, I did happen to find myself sitting a couple of feet away from a belligerent man who a security guard had to “escort” out of the store (he went fighting!). That was uncomfortable and scary. Although, I think that was a little out of the ordinary. At least, I hope so :).
All-in-all I think the new store is a win for the South End AND Southie. I for one am glad to no longer have to drive all the way to Dedham to be in a decent sized Whole Foods!
