It's been in the works for more than two years, and now the Whole Foods in Wall Township finally has an opening date!

The health food lover's paradise will open their doors to the public on Wednesday, April 13th at 9 a.m.

The store is located in the Allaire Plaza on Rt. 35 at Allaire Rd.

I live near the Whole Foods in Middletown, and while I don't do all of my grocery shopping there, it's definitely great for a few things: their store brand organic goods are very good, and they also have great (organic) produce and their prepared foods and breads are always great. Plus-- they carry wine and beer!

It's also a great place to find healthy and specialty items that regular grocery stores might not have.

It can be on the pricey side, but as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for," right? Organic stuff is always more expensive. That said, I really like the store..and I'm glad to see another one opening here in Monmouth County!
