I Went to Whole Foods.........


This weekend I was in the Chicagoland area, and while there, visited a Whole Foods.


For those of you who are like me and don't have a Whole Foods in your neighborhood, come along for a peek inside.......click on the pictures to view larger


I was immediately impressed with how Beautifully everything was displayed.......


Fresh Veggies......



Fresh Flowers......



a nice variety of Seafood...........

loved the color of these Wild Greenshell Mussels........




a seemingly endless variety of Cheeses............


I was intriqued with the layered one, some kind of yellow cheese filled with a bleu cheese......





Huge wheels............


Wine..........



My husband has a love of olives.......he spent a long time here tasting the olives and cheeses and came home with several varieties that were new to us....


I, on the other hand, go more for the sweeter stuff.......


Breads and Pastries.............


there were Muffins, scones........


Danish............

apple cinnamon.....cream cheese..... cherry.........


but this woman does not live by bread alone...........

they've got me covered..........

.

there are cream puffs.............


chocolate covered strawberries..........

small fruit tarts..........



and large fruit tarts..........



Fancy Cakes.........










Cupcakes..........



I feel the need for a Desserts Tea Party..........



or two...........or three...........






So glad you could join me.

  2. How beautiful everything is displayed. The pictures of all those sweets and cakes made my mouth water.
    I have a Whole Foods close by, so perhaps I'll pay them a visit this week ;-)

  4. Hello Betty Jean!
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment...it was very nice to 'meet' you. OH MY GOSH...I have NEVER seen such a beautiful grocery store before.... the vegetables look like art! And the cheese and the pastries....drool...this reminds me of the beautiful pastry shops in Versailles and Paris!!! These are nearly too pretty to eat...although I don't think I could keep them around just to look at ;). Thanks for sharing your wonderful trip to Whole Foods...I'm going to have to see where the closest one is to me. I hope you have a wonderful day and that you'll come back again to visit. Take care.
