This Whole Foods is part of a development called Columbus Square, which will include a bunch of other stores (Duane Reade, Crumbs, and the first Michael's craft store in Manhattan). We're beyond excited, and we think it'll actually bring foot traffic to the 97th Street farmers' market that sets up on that block on Fridays. The Whole Foods at Union Square sits right next to the farmers' market, and we frequently stop at both, getting local produce at the market and picking up everything else at the store.
We'll definitely bring you a report after opening day. In the meantime, let us know if you have any tips on the new store.
