About Us / Whole Foods Market History: Founded in 1980 as one small store in Austin, Texas, Whole Foods Market is now the world's largest retailer of natural and organic foods, with over 310 stores in North America and the United Kingdom. To date Whole Foods Market remains uniquely mission driven: We're highly selective about what we sell, dedicated to stringent quality standards, and committed to sustainable agriculture. \n\nWe obtain our products locally and from all over the world, often from small, uniquely dedicated food artisans. We strive to offer the highest quality, least processed, most flavorful and naturally preserved foods. We believe in a virtuous circle entwining the food chain, human beings and the earth: each is reliant upon the others through a beautiful and delicate symbiosis. Choosing organic supports farmers and producers who believe in good health, quality foods and earth-friendly sustainable agricultural practices. We make caring about our communities and our environment, and promoting health through healthy eating education our top priorities.
