The last announcement from Whole Foods back in October indicated that the store at Broad and Bienville will open on February 4, 2014. Many thanks to Robert Thompson for sending in the article below about the first grocery store to open at that location on March 22, 1965. Please be patient, it may take a few seconds for the PDF to appear after you click on the article below.
Lisa Amoss adds… Whole Foods on Broad will be part of the ReFresh collaborative, including other tenants Liberty’s Kitchen, the Tulane Medical School Goldring Culinary Medicine Center, and First Line Schools with their Edible Schoolyard program, as well as over 20 off-site partners. There will also be a small urban farm on site. As a collaborative, a series of training programs will run on how to shop for nutritious food cost effectively, how to grow nutritious food, and how to cook healthy food that people will like and eat. It’s an exciting project starting with the Whole Foods opening Feb. 4th. BTW if you haven’t tried it, try shopping the Whole Foods “365” line that is expanding all the time. You’ll find it’s the most cost effective, as well as healthy, shopping in town.
