Massive Whole Foods Lands in Union.

I want you to relax as a calming energy washes over your body. You have not a care in the world. With each breath of ultra clean piped in air from Iceland — you feel totally renewed. A masseuse kneads the tension out of your shoulders as you quietly place organic fruits and vegetables into a hemp woven basket. A man with a large machete cuts a piece of fresh mango and places a slice in your mouth. Water trickles down a small water fall and flows into a sparkling Koi pond. A blond haired woman tenderly milks a cow – smiles at you – then places a warm glass bottle in your basket.

Ok. This is getting weird. Are you relaxed? Great!

People in Union — what’s up!!!!! You better be thrilled that Whole Foods Market has moved into your area. This is a major stamp of approval from a serious upscale retailer — and totally reinforces the fact that Union is serious town to watch. Believe me — Whole Foods Market doesn’t put their stores in just any old town.

So what’s up with this new Whole Foods?

Size and selection. It’s huge. That’s what’s up. It’s like the Disneyland of health food markets.

Do I like the store?

Hell yes. Absolutely. Who wouldn’t want a store like this within a few miles of their home?

I could drone on and on about the place, but “here are a few of my favorite things.” No pun intended.

1. Fresh Roasted Coffee. They actually roast it in the store. It’s awesome.
2. Large prepared foods section. The food ranges from curry to macaroni and cheese.
3. Amazing gelato ice cream. Try the chocolate. My son loved it.
4. Fresh pizza. Looks good.
5. Fresh sushi.
6. Large Bakery.
7. Huge Meat Section. Dwarfs the old one in Millburn. Excellent selection.
8. Fantastic produce area.
9. Homemade pasta bar. What a trip. They make it right in front of you.
10. Huge frozen section.

That’s not all. Whole Foods Market in Union is so large that it would be extremely difficult for me to cover every detail. That means that you’ll have to check it out yourself.

By the way, there’s also in store dining at Osteria. I haven’t tried it yet but here’s the menu.

If anyone’s had a chance to sample the food – I would love to hear your comments.

So what are you waiting for? Go check out the new Whole Foods in Union, New Jersey. It’s an amazing shopping experience.

Oh yeah, don’t forget to bring your wallet.

Amen, brother! You can tell which way a neighborhood or city is going by the quality of the stores popping up. I got spoiled on Whole Foods when I lived in Chicago. Now, I have to drive 40 miles to get to one! Ugh! The good folks in Union should count their blessings!

I’m thrilled. I will be in New Jersey this sping. I’m looking forward
to visit your wonderful market. I love Organic good food. It’s a
blessing. I hope that I will be able to go home after visiting your market. I might have to purchase a house in Union,N.J. just to be
able to shop at your market.

Sincerely,
Sybil Columb
