Whole Foods, a well known grocery chain of high end, organic and local products will open a 4ok square foot store on H St NE in Washington, D.C. on March 15th 2017. Notable collaborators with the store include local acclaimed chef Erik Bruner-Yang of Maketto and Atlas Brew Works a Washington D.C. based brewery. The store will feature an outdoor patio, 16 local beers on tap, a hot dog cart and the largest beer cooler of any Whole Foods in D.C..

The sixth location for Whole Foods D.C. will open to the community with a bread breaking ceremony at 8:45 am this Wednesday, March 15th. Door buster deals will follow the bread breaking and customers will be welcomed with demonstrations and samples.
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).
