The latest Whole Foods Market in Overland Park, Kan., includes organic, coventional and the retailer's Sourced for Good produce.

Whole Foods Market’s famous foragers have been hard at work finding products for the grocer’s latest outpost in Overland Park, Kan. The store, set to open on Nov. 15, will carry more than 750 items sourced from the greater Kansas area, along with the retailer’s assortment of fresh, prepared, specialty and center-store products.

Spanning 45,791 square feet, the store at 11900 Metcalf Avenue will serve residents throughout the metro Kansas City area. The new, bigger site replaces the previous Whole Foods in another part of Overland Park that opened in 2007.

A bigger footprint means room for more products. This Whole Foods will be stocked with an expanded lineup of fresh produce offerings, gourmet cheeses, craft beers and 365 by Whole Foods Market store brand items. Shoppers can browse full-service meat and seafood counters that offer several locally-sourced proteins and visit the bakery department that sells many goods made in-house. The prepared foods area, a Whole Foods signature section, includes a hot bar, salad bar and self-serve pizza station, along with made-to-order sandwiches and fresh sushi. Local products will also be part of the selection at the Whole Body department.

Whole Foods Market Overland Park will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. CST.
