It’s mini, but mighty!
Fort Greene’s new Whole Foods Market 365 opens tomorrow, but we got a sneak peek at the grocer’s fresh digs yesterday. Here’s what’s in store.
The bottom level of the two-floor market — a smaller version of the Amazon-owned chain’s eponymous food seller — features aisles filled with traditional pantry supplies, prepared to-go snacks, and fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and fish. But there are no butcher or fish counters on site.
Shoppers who take an escalator to the Ashland Place shop’s second floor will find a cafeteria-style space where they can nosh on food from the market’s three in-store vendors — which include coffee-and-pastry seller Orwashers, plant-based grill Next Level Burger, and health-food joint Juice Press — or sip on a glass of beer, wine, or cider poured from a do-it-yourself tap wall dubbed Pour Authority.
And the shrunken market’s first East Coast branch features special perks for local pizza and suds lovers.
Hungry customers not satisfied with the mere slices in the store’s prepared-food section can pick up a special pizza-only phone near the grocer’s cash registers to order a full pie, made hot and fresh while they grab the other items on their lists. And a special beer-pairing station allows shoppers to search for their favorite brew, and recommends foods to pair with it.
Whole Foods Market 365 (292 Ashland Place between Lafayette Avenue and Hanson Place in Fort Greene). Open Sun–Sat, 8 am–11 pm.
