Bike Friendly Richardson

Cool Richardson Destinations – Whole Foods

Posted in Cool Richardson Destinations by dickdavid on August 4, 2011

One of the things that I always complain about is that there aren’t enough good destinations in Richardson. Compared to Dallas, with the Farmer’s Market, White Rock Lake, Lakewood, Lower Greenville, Deep Ellum, Uptown, Oak Cliff and other great spots, Richardson just doesn’t seem as interesting. Sure, it’s a great place to ride, but I’d prefer to have a nice destination as well.

Well, I’ve decided to not give up so easily – but rather open my eyes more as I explore our city by bike. I’ll try to share some of these re-discoveries here.

This past weekend’s destination was the Richardson Whole Foods. Nestled on the southwest side of Richardson, off of Coit Road, I had to go completely across town to reach it. Not a problem, even riding a bike.

In comparison to some of the newer, fancy Whole Foods stores that have popped up around the DFW Metroplex, our store seems a little old and outdated. Still, I really like the fact that it has personality and feels local. Although they might seem slightly more expensive than other chain grocery stores, their products are high quality – with a focus on wholesome, healthy living. Well worth it, if you care about what you put in your body.

I like the fact that they have a bike rack out front.

Plus, if you take the time to explore the store, you can find some nice treasures at great prices. I managed to find a potato and egg burrito for breakfast that was cheap and extremely delicious.
