    I find that where I live our regular supermarkets do a really good job at supplying a lot of organic and healthy options, but there are some things that I can only find at Whole Foods, so I guess I shop at both depending on my shopping list.

    There is a Whole Food store near my home.I have never been there. I have faith in the food I purchase at the regular grocery store and I believe I am saving a fair amount of money.

    We have a Whole Foods store within an hour of here, so my husband goes sometimes because he works near there. I shop organic- mostly buying produce or rice, beans, grains, and the like- at local health foods stores and grocery stores (more are carrying that sort of thing now), and get fresh produce at farmer's markets and roadside stands.
    I actually stay away from most of the stuff in "health food" stores because the ingredients in a lot of their products are no different from those found in a normal grocery store's products.  There is a lot of false, or mis-leading advertising; plus, big business has unfortunately invaded the market and corrupted it.
    Looks like I go wherever I can find the best things:)

    Whole Foods is a good choice for better quality food than a run of the mill grocery store.  However, in most urban areas, the big name grocery chains are carrying organic and healthy food choices, too (they want in on the money train, of course, as people wise-up and realize they are eating garbage) so I frequent them but buy organic. 

    However, Whole Foods and the healthier stores are not near everyone.  In that case, one can only do the best they can with what they have (unless they want to grow their own organic food from seed, of course). 

    I mean, if traditional food sold in the likes of Safeway and Food Maxx are actually BANNED in Europe because of health concerns, then that's a real red flag that people should be paying more attention to what they're putting into their bodies when they're in the United States, where those very unhealthy choices are allowed - but shouldn't be. So, to answer your question, if my regular supermarkets didn't have good choices and Whole Foods was the only game in town, I would be shopping there.
