Whole Foods Market opened a new store in Huntington Beach on Wednesday. As you may know, Whole Foods promotes healthy eating principles that also include locally and sustainably grown organic produce and meats. Vic and I couldn't be happier.
The spiffy new store is in the Bella Terra mall near Staples. I took a tour of the store Monday prior to its grand opening and was duly impressed.
About half of the produce it sells will be organic, with much of it locally grown. For those of us who like to know where our food comes from, Whole Foods will display the location where the produce was grown, along with how many miles it traveled to get to the store. For years, Vic and I have been exhorting our readers to eat foods that are organic, in season and locally grown. Whole Foods will make it easier to do just that.
