Freshly announced: Hyde Park is getting a new Whole Foods in summer 2014! The 30,000-square-foot store, in addition to carrying everyday grocery items, will feature large fresh-food and bulk-good sections, a sit-down bar and pouring station serving beer and wine, and a cooking classroom with tips on eating fresh and healthy foods, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The market, to be situated at 5105 South Harper, will be the first Chicagoland store south of Roosevelt Road. [Chicago Sun-Times]
