Wholly Awesome - Whole Foods

South Austin just got It's newest Whole Foods
 It's in a 39600 square foot building, located at 4301 W. William Cannon. 


The official Store Opening, or better known in the Whole Foods community as a Bread Breaking (how can you not love that?), is on June 19th at 7:30AM. 


This store was built and decorated with tons of visually interesting reclaimed materials. Examples include these vintage tail gates pulled from a West Texas salvage yard hanging over the checkout stands.


The Bulk section boasts a huge wall of various goods. 
There's also an on site Specialist, Kelly Dennis, to assist you with healthy eating ideas. 


Don't forget the flowers ! 
Whole Foods Arbor Trails offers up a large variety of cut flowers, including Whole Trade certified options. 


Whole Foods believes in treating the whole body, so they offer a complete line of natural cosmetics, natural body care and homeopathic remedies.


There's amazingly detailed artwork all over the store by local artists.
Can you believe these beer signs are made of chalk ?
 It's true ! 


And as if that's not enough, this newest South Austin Whole Foods boasts a BAR. 
Yes, you read that right ! 
A bar, aptly named "Happy Trails" is the perfect place to park any adult who needs a little break from all of the shopping excitement. 


Last, but certainly not least - the Bakery ! This sign says it all. At the Bakery you will find a 'Special Diet' cake display of fresh, homemade special diet deserts like sugar free & even vegan cakes. 

This store surely has a fun and informative feel about it. There's no way you're walking out of this newest Whole Foods without learning a ton about food and having a greater appreciation for where and how your food  is prepared.

Thanks so much for commenting, Christina ! I haven't had the pleasure of hitting up the Bee Cave store yet either, but I'll have to soon.
