We have Redstone Arsenal here, as well as NASA, plus a lot of military retirees, so Huntsville is probably one of the most progressive cities in Alabama, even though it is not the largest. They just opened the Whole Foods Market here last November , so it is pretty new for us. It is not too far from where we live, and is on the way when we go to the fitness center; so we decided to stop by and check it out. After looking, we could see how it had the nickname of "whole paycheck market", and were astonished that chicken (which is usually areound $1-$2 per lb) was selling for $10 per lb. Most of the time, we do not see very many cars there, but they have a huge deli area, and apparently a lot of their business is people coming in for lunch, and taking home food after work.
