Our store is nestled in between two of Minneapolis' most beautiful lakes, Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles. Located on Lake Avenue and Excelsior Boulevard, right off of the Greenway bike path, we have Uptown's largest selection of natural and organic ingredients. Plus, our store has an extensive prepared foods deli department, a cooking classroom, and is connected to Jamba Juice. Come in and say "hello!"
When you hear the word "organic" what do you think of? If you’re at all familiar with organic farming, then you probably know that a certified organic apple has to be grown according to certain standards – such as no toxic or persistent pesticides. Makes sense. You might also know that certified organic beef comes from cows that eat certified organic feed and steer clear (no pun intended) of antibiotics and added growth hormones. All that makes sense too. So, when someone says "organic", bucolic images of farms, orchards and pastures probably come to mind. Bustling urban grocery stores? Not so much.
Well, like those apples and that beef, Whole Foods Market stores are certified organic. "Wait, what?" - you may ask - "A grocery store can be certified organic?" Yes, it can and we are.
