Whole Foods Market is a foods supermarket specializing in foods that are supposedly healthy, such as organic and locally grown food. “Whole Foodie” (Whole Foods + foodie) is a term to describe a Whole Foods customer; “not just to slur Whole Foodies as pretention-obsessed Yuppies” was cited in print in January 2006. “Whole Foodsies”—a term used much less frequently—has been cited in print since at least 2005.
Both “Whole Foodies” and “Whole Foodsies” can also apply to employees at Whole Foods, but this usage is rare and negates the “foodie” (food enthusiast) pun in the nickname.

Hey Divz, nice going, good to see you blogging. Noted the Whole Foods thing, happy to welcome all new Whole Foodsies, though the Indian food by the pound is news to me. I’m really thinking of visiting NY, just to try out all these eating places and to “kazhatti vittufy.....”

Power for the People
Our power-generation-utility readers may be interested at the recent Jane Galt discussion on Whole Foods and Green Power.
One commenter references a rough’n’ready rant by Jonah Goldberg, but the identity issue Goldberg raises is surely worth looking closely at, and not just to slur Whole Foodies as pretention-obsessed Yuppies.

I have to note that Whole Foods employees always grin warmly at the smallest Whole Foodies.
