Best Produce: Whole Foods Market

From the March 28, 2013 edition

It’s easy to rip on chain businesses — whether restaurants, retail or grocery — but when they’re run right, when they don’t seem like a monolithic entity too large and deaf to listen to its customers’ needs, they can be marvelous.

But don’t take our word for it.

You’ve voted Whole Foods Market your top place for produce yet again in Columbus Alive’s reader poll. That doesn’t happen by chance.

Being part of a larger network of stores allows Whole Foods to offer a comprehensive selection of fresh, organic produce that few can compete against.

Ultimately, that means fresher, healthier options for Columbus, and who can complain about that?
