Crowded aisles, smaller selection for a NoVa grocery store. I would rather go elsewhere. I donít like whole foods in general, but some of them do have a decent selection. This one is in the low middle from my experience. I think I was a little too harsh so Iíve revised my rating up slightly.

Whole foods beer sections are pretty hit and miss. This one is small but fairly potent. They have a cooler with six packs and some large bottles as well as an adjacent shelf with singles and other large bottles. They also have 5 taps and they fill and sell 32 and 64 ounce growlers. In keeping with Whole Foods philosophy thereís no BMC here. The six packs seem to get way more turnover than the singles so this could be a good secondary or tertiary beer store when it comes to getting seasonals.

Finally got the chance to stop here, meaning the Springfield store is the only Virginia Whole Foods I have not visited. Small location, but bigger than it appears from the parking lot. That being said, it is still cramped inside, and tough to get around, especially around the beer section. The beer section is small, but good. Oddly, there was a sign describing growlers, with not a growler to be found. Employees were friendly for the most part. Parking could get cramped. Prices were a bit on the high side.
