Whole Foods Market opens the doors at its newest store in San Jose today at 10:00am - Whole Foods Market Blossom Hill. The store is at 1146 Blossom Hill Road. Thanks to my good friend Cristina, I was able to get a behind-the-scenes VIP tour of the store before it opened. Thank you C!!
Apart from the fact that the store is flat out gorgeous - it's also energy efficient and environmentally friendly with much of its decor made from reclaimed wood, recycled glass, and recycled paper. A UTC Power fuel cell produces the electricity, heat and water through an electrochemical process and will generate 90 percent of the store's electricity needs.

Whole Foods has long been known as a health-conscious grocery store offering a wide selection of organic, sustainable, all natural and hormone free foods. I think you'll find this store to be the perfect ratio of gourmet/specialty items to budget-friendly quality items - in other words, there's something for everyone.
