Who are we? Well, we seek out the finest natural and organic foods available, maintain the strictest quality standards in the industry, and have an unshakeable commitment to sustainable agriculture.

Whole Foods Market History

Back in 1980, we started out with one small store in Austin, Texas. Today, we’re the world’s leader in natural and organic foods, with 500+ stores in North America and the UK.


Whole Foods Market has more than 350 retail and non-retail locations in the US, Canada and UK — and even more stores in development. Come grow with us!
