• Whole Foods Market at 161 Lexington Green Circle has been a community partner for nine years. If you like to eat healthy and organic foods, Whole Foods is the place for you, as it is Central Kentucky’s certified-organic grocer. The store provides produce that is held to the highest standards and strictest regulations. None of the foods will have any artificial flavors, preservatives, colors, or hydrogenated oils. Whole Foods Market's hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. There's also a Wine & Spirits shop open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

You won't find plastic grocery bags at ALDI, but you are encouraged to bring your own reusable bag or purchase one at the checkout. The market sells 1,400 of the fastest-moving grocery items, allowing for lower rent and electricity costs and bigger savings for you.
