Architect's rendering of the view at Washington and Allston streets.

Shiva and aide at Dedham Whole Foods

Candidate on the far right.

Shamus Moynihan happened to drop by the Dedham Whole Foods this afternoon as independent Senate candidate Shiva Ayyadurai and some minions were outside trying to collect signatures.

People are running away from him like that street scene in Borat.

A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things.

Vehical in the South End

Matt Karolian spotted this note on the mirror of a gas guzzler parked in the space next to an electric-vehicle recharger at the South End Whole Foods. Either the note writer is from down South or was so annoyed he couldn't be bothered with the niceties of spelling.

Eggnog in October at Somerville Whole Foods

And we're still drawing down our pumpkin-spice supplies. R.S.Y. Buchanan reports seeing this Christmas drink today at the Somerville Whole Foods. Or as he puts it:

Dammit, tryptophan induced coma comes first!

The Boston Licensing Board today approved requests from Whole Foods to offer patio seating to shoppers who can't wait to get home to eat their meals and to sell the sort of beer, wine and spirits Whole Foods customers would expect.

At a hearing yesterday, a Whole Foods attorney said the chain plans on 103 indoor and 112 outdoor seats at the store being built as part of the Ink Block development on the old Boston Herald site on Harrison Avenue between Herald and Traveler streets.

Whole Foods yogurt cup

Label on a Whole Foods yogurt cup Knox says he bought last month.

A Brookline man who charges Whole Foods duped him into buying its 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt by claiming it has far less sugar than it really does didn't just walk into his local Whole Foods demanding a refund - he filed a federal class-action lawsuit demanding the chain accurately label its yogurt and pay him, other purchasers and his lawyers millions of dollars for their trouble.

A postal worker and Whole Foods are embroiled in a legal dispute over whether he tripped on a pumpkin stem at its Alewife Brook Parkway market or whether he stumbled over his own two feet as he was getting out of his truck.

Ronald Rossetti, a postal carrier, is suing Whole Foods for negligence in Middlesex Superior Court. He claims that while making a delivery to the store on Sept. 10, 2012, he fell on a pumpkin stem near an outdoor pumpkin display and broke his ankle so severely he has been unable to return to work. He is seeking damages for himself; his wife wants additional penalties for "loss of consortium."

Managers evacuated the Whole Foods at 15 Westland Ave. around noon when they discovered an unattended stainless-steel briefcase just sitting there, inside the entrance.

The BPD bomb squad is on scene; firefighters are staging down the street, just in case they're needed.

The Herald reports on the confluence of townies and toonies - or as one townie called them, "yuppadoos" - at the opening of Charlestown's new Whole Foods.

By adamg - 8/30/12 - 8:11 am

Including the ones in Charlestown, Brookline and Somerville and Arlington, the Globe reports.

The Boston Business Journal reports the chain has signed a lease for the development going in where the Herald used to be.

Jason Schwartz says:

The South End getting a Whole Foods is sort of like its own version of achieving manifest destiny.
