Whole Foods' Austin Flagship Is Amazing (Photos)

If despite its hefty price tags and intimidatingly perfect patrons, you're drinking the Whole Foods' Kool Aid -- their flagship store in Austin might send you into a diabetic coma. It's the healthy eater's Holy Grail, even if too much of a good thing is, well, freakin' expensive.

The 80,000-square-foot market, bar, eatery, makeup counter and pick-up joint (we suspect) makes our local branches look like the neighborhood 7-11. But if you can't make the trek yourself, here's a photo tour of their edible wonders instead. And staying home is probably best. We're saving you like $750 in vegan cheese, organic face cream, and GMO-free lettuce.
