Whole Foods Market of Austin, Texas, has opened a new 47,000-square-foot store in Harbor East, at 711 S. Central Ave. in Baltimore. The store serves as a relocation of the 1001 Fleet St. store. The new store features grocery delivery and an Amazon Hub Locker.
Special features of the new Harbor East store include a seafood counter brimming with fresh and frozen seafood, including crab—a Maryland must. All offerings are either sustainable wild-caught or Responsibly Farmed, including local smoked fish, headfish, clams, oysters and crab.
Ethical Trade Produce
The new Harbor East store’s produce department offers a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as selections from local growers, and a range of items with Whole Foods Market’s Whole Trade Guarantee, which supports suppliers that are committed to ethical trade, working conditions and the environment.
A Bevy of Beauty
The Wellness and Beauty section features an array of beauty and body care products that meet the company’s body care standards, which ban more than 100 commonly used ingredients, including phthalates, parabens and microbeads.
