The location will have all the standard features of a Whole Foods store; on site parking, bulk section, deli, butcher and fish market featuring only responsibly sourced meats, cafe, salad bar and a machine for freshly squeezed orange juice. Unique to this location is H street’s first outdoor patio, a mezzanine pub featuring 16 local beers on tap and hot dog cart, as well as collaborations with Atlas Brew Works (home brew kits, a beer exclusive to this store and breads from their spent grains) and chef Erik Bruner-Yang’s Chinese comfort food menu- a concept known as Paper Horse. “I’m excited to introduce the Whole Foods Market difference to our neighbors who live east of the Capitol,” said store team leader Donovan Morris “When people understand that every single item on our shelves and sold in our restaurants is free of artificial preservatives, flavors, sweeteners, colors and hydrogenated fats, they can trust that every product is made with only the best ingredients.”

We got a pre-tour of the store on Sunday, and here’s what we saw (and tasted).


Bulk section, where you can get as many or as little of an item as you’d like.

The longest beer cooler of any Whole Foods in D.C.


The biggest wheel of parmesan I’ve ever nibbled on. And behind is their gourmet cheese selection, yum!

Have fun at the opening, and don’t forget to take a “shoefie” while you’re there for a chance to win a gift card.
