Northern California’s alleged “flagship” Whole Foods has opened its sliding doors to the denizens of Cupertino. The new 64,000 square-foot monstrosity is the largest Whole Foods in the western United States and replaces the one across the street. It is full of all kinds of amenities, going far and beyond your run-of-the-mill supermarket:
.. this Whole Foods at 20955 Stevens Creek Blvd. features a Market Bistro (open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily) that serves made-to-order sandwiches, soups and salads. The store includes a center for cooking classes, as well as free wireless Internet access.Shoppers will get their fill with a carvery and tossed-to-order salad station, a dim sum bar, a wood-fired pizza oven, hot teriyaki bowls and an expanded sushi section. Besides a bountiful organic produce section, the Cupertino store - reflecting its surrounding community’s large Asian-American population - will boast a large selection of Asian produce.
The new generation of Whole Foods stores are indeed a wonder to behold, so if you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth a stroll.
