Whole Foods operates stores in eight markets in the city, including a 19,000-sq.-ft. store in Chelsea and a 77,000-sq.-ft. store in Bowery. With four stores in development in Harlem, the Upper East Side, Williamsburg and Bryant Park, the chain plans to increase its presence in the city by 50 percent.
