That was an attempt at humor. I meant that they were expensive.

Whole Foods here in Nashville has its own eat-in restaurant, much bigger than I've seen at any grocery store. Buffets after buffets, plenty to pick from. If the Knox location does this, then they'll definitely give the others a run for their money.

What I will miss when we move to East TN is Stater Bros, which is the best grocery store I've been to. Best price, very good quality, most local produce and still family owned. I hope I'll find such a good store around Knoxville that will not require the use of a credit card for a gallon of milk.
Umm, Whole Foods does have their own generic brand. Which is actually quite cheap on a lot of things. At the same time they do have $8 milk etc....

Whole Foods would rather locate in the wealthiest part of a city(makes sense). North Knoxville is not the wealthiest area in Knox County.

Meh. I may be wrong, but I consider Whole Foods right along with Starbucks and Panera: folks from the north move to the south and decide that's just what the south needs...to be more like the mess they came from.

As Mr. Obama said to a bunch of hillbillies in Kentucky, (paraphrasing) "I feel your pain. I know food is expensive. Have you seen the price of arugula at Whole Foods?"

It may have its virtues; I've never shopped there. But I get the impression it's one of those snobbish things, like walking around with a Starbucks coffee cup...

What's at whole foods that isn't at the farm market? Or (gasp) the grocery store?

Whole Foods is nice. Their meat is amazing but quite costly. Their generic "365" brand is great and the price is comparable to other grocery stores.
