Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Somerville and Arlington Residents Enjoying New Whole Foods Markets

Residents are flocking to Whole Foods Market’s newest locations at 45 Beacon Street, in Somerville, and at 808 Massachusetts Avenue, in Arlington, to purchase natural and organic food and other healthy living products. With the addition of these two stores, Whole Foods currently has 28 Massachusetts locations and more than 325 stores in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

The natural and organic supermarkets are serving the community with outstanding value on the highest quality groceries, produce, seafood and meats available, along with a charcuterie, restaurant-quality prepared foods, a burrito bar and a pizza oven in the bakery department. Each store has employed more than 100 full- and part-time team members.

“We opened our doors on September 4, with our first 5 percent day, where we donated 5 percent of our opening sales to five different local nonprofit organizations: Second Chances, Groundwork Somerville, The Family Center, Community Cooks and Food For Free,” says Marketing Team Leader Jessi Haggerty. “With the highest quality standards in the industry, we are excited to offer our outstanding products at such a great value to the Somerville community.”

Arlington Community Liaison Katie Lamie adds, “Our Arlington team is thrilled to have opened our doors and proud to be carrying local Arlington-based products including The Chilly Cow and Doves and Figs. November 1 marks the beginning of the stores’ holiday ordering for Thanksgiving and beyond, and we are looking forward to helping our customers serve their best holiday meals yet.”

Store hours: 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., 7 days a week. For more local store information, visit and
