Whole Foods

C’ville Market

We probably should have been a bit more specific when we said “local grocery store,” because while Whole Foods is indeed inside city limits, it’s not locally owned. Still, its appeal is undeniable—a commitment to natural foods free of growth hormones or processed ingredients; full-service butchers and fish mongers; a wood-fired pizza oven; and even an outdoor patio with free Wi-Fi. It’s hard to argue with that. Over on Carlton Road, C’ville Market stocks fresh local produce and gourmet groceries.
