I ordered bakery cakes here multiple time and they were really delicious. Also the decorations were perfect, exactly what I was hoping for. The pricing is only slightly higher than other grocery stores, but it is totally worth it because the quality of the cake is so much better. AND it is a lot less expensive than other area bakeries. The frosting was delicious and not greasy. And the people working at the stores were all very friendly and helpful.

As always, food selection was great here, especially if you’re looking for vegan options. The freshly made vegan pizza is great, and there are plenty of vegan meats and vegetables to choose from the aisles. It was a bit disconcerting to have a cop hovering in the dining area the entire time we ate, but otherwise it was a pleasant experience.

Prices really are more reasonable now. Still has a great selection of quality foods. Hot bar and prepared foods are as good as it gets in the grocery business.

Several of the 365 brand items in beauty care have been reformulated since Amazon purchased whole foods; body lotion now includes chemical preservatives, and the smell has changed. That said, Whole Foods remains one of the few places where more obscure food items, such as cauliflower flour, can be found. Plus Amazon prime members now receive 5% off purchases.

Whole foods carries great health food items, so items are pricey, but they have stuff that other store don't have.

I shop here on a weekly and when I need help finding something everyone is very helpful. My last trip out the icing on the cake for me. I was in search of white and roses yesterday 01/28/2020 and I found a dozen red but no white. I asked the florist if there were any and he was kind and sawed me a bouquet with blue flowers and 3 white roses. So I was at the register about to spend $35 when I saw him again I asked if he was looking for me and he was!!!!! He told me he remembered about the white garden roses they just got in and was hoping I was still in the store. So I gave him a huge hug knocking off my hat in the process. I walked out with a wide grin on my face and two dozen of red and white roses for $25. The florist name is Kenny. Ask for him when you’re shopping for flowers at the Wholes Food in Durham.

We now often drive 15 ish miles to this WF location (despite living a mile or so from our Chapel Hill location) as they provide excellent grocery pick up. Over the last couple of years, we discovered that the prepared foods and food bars at the Durham WF are fresher, and of a more interesting variety than the Chapel Hill location. Have found managent more open to new ideas and more organized at the Durham location. They have our business!

kudos to them and their employees, I have been shopping here frequently during the covid pandemic and the staff and their professionalism, as well as their precautions with social distancing and the face mask requirement are respected and make me feel safe. I also feel like they have the best layout and selection in the triangle area.

Whole Foods Durham must have some competition from Weaver St. Market etc. here, it was empty and fully stocked and easy to shop. Staff was super nice!

Always a pleasure to shop here despite the cramped store layout. The store has decent sales on particular items and their selection of organic foods suits my needs. The employees are always kind and I appreciate all of the safety precautions taken due to Covid-19 .

Normally I buy food from the bar. The food is always delicious, fresh, warm and replenished. Someone used to serve the food due to restrictions. Now they have sanitizer, and plastic gloves for everyone to serve themselves. Thumbs up for the kitchen and bar preparers. Thank you. Great job! Muy buen trabajo muchachos. Son muy atentos!

Parking lot can get crazy! But their selection and open hot bar is amazing! I also really enjoy their open patio in the summer! Easy walk from campus and there is also a cross walk!

Always super helpful here, staff isnt always friendly but usually are for the most part. I’ve gotten bad shrimp from here once but they were happy to refund me. Also got broccoli that was infested with little worms, wasn’t able to refund the broccoli since I was bringing food to cook out of town but overall, I’m usually pleased with this market.

If the staff would just stop believing their own press it could be a good place to shop.

Great place for purchasing whole organic foods. It is a bit pricey even with prime discounts. Also a very busy location with tight parking. Best to shop at non-peak hours.

I recently tried the fresh pork chorizo, which I believe is made in-house. It was great! I'll be back for more. I do agree with another review that stated things have gone down hill since the Amazon deal.

Lol pricey groceries. Sure the stuff is pretty good, but if it’s a basic item, check to see if another place has it for less. Harris Teeter’s has their fancy all-natural eye drops for a couple bucks cheaper, for example.
