Customers walking out of Whole Foods in Washington, DC
Whole Foods Market opened its store in Washington, DC’s, Glover Park neighborhood on Wednesday, Feb. 23. The 21,500-square-foot store offers a wide variety of local products, all hand-selected by Whole Foods Market Mid Atlantic’s Local Forager Kathleen Leverenz. This store is the first of two Whole Foods Market locations expected to open this year that feature Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology.
With Just Walk Out Shopping, the store provides customers the choice to skip the register for a faster, more convenient shopping experience while offering the same high-quality products and service as other Whole Foods Market stores.
Additional highlights of the Glover Park store include:
- Prepared Foods section with hot and cold food bars and large assortment of ready-to-eat soups.
- An array of organic, conventional, local and Sourced for Good produce, plus local offerings including packaged salads from Bowery Farming’s Nottingham, MD, farm and Gotham Greens’ Baltimore farm, as well as dressings from Tessamae’s.
- Full-service butcher available to custom cut meats, debone poultry and prepare special orders.
- Specialty department dedicated to celebrating cheesemakers, artisan producers and specialty foods like chocolate.
- Grocery products from local creators.
- Extensive selection of more than 250 beers and more than 500 wines from 50 local suppliers.
- Bakery offering house-made custom decorated cakes, scratch-made breads and options for dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan treats.

To give back to the Glover Park community, Whole Foods Market will be supporting STEM For Her programs in the Washington, DC, metro area.
