The long awaited opening of organic and natural supermarket Whole Foods Market on Fulham Broadway has been confirmed for April 10 at 10am.

At the time of the announcement of its launch, Jeff Turnas, Whole Foods Market’s UK Regional President said: " We are excited to be able to further expand our grocery offering to shoppers in West London.
" The Fulham Broadway store will be a fantastic addition to our portfolio of stores in the UK and it will allow us to show off the best in British foods such as our unique animal welfare rated meats and sustainably ranked seafood, while focusing on reviving traditional skills such as butchery and fishmongery in store.
" As with our existing London stores, our goal is to be the finest food shop in every community we serve. For example, we will be baking and cooking on site each day and we will be offering an amazing array of fresh, healthy and organic food, highlighting local products from our UK producers.
