"Our store has been part of the community for more than two decades, so we're excited that the new and bigger Whole Foods Market remains in the heart of our neighborhood. We can offer our customers a better experience while still presenting nourishing food and organic health options," store manager Andrew Kartak says. “We definitely think that the benefit of going to a larger space is worthwhile for our customer base. We welcome all to visit, browse, and buy at Whole Foods Market on Selby at Snelling. And, there's ample free parking!"
"Selby Avenue Bar & Grill" - No more grocery shopping while hungry... That’s right, a bar and grill inside your grocery store! The model has been successful in several Chicago stores, but this is the first in Minnesota. The bar and grill area will have local beers on tap and serve po'boy sandwiches, stuffed tater tots, and other upscale traditional bar food. It’ll be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You must remain in the bar and grill area with your adult beverages, though.
Also a Fresh Juice Bar (also the first in a Minnesota Whole Foods location) and a Coffee Shop that serves housemade gelato.
