Copy Cat of Whole Foods and everyone knows it. They do not have the purchasing power of Whole Food, nor the consumer's respect. I see Fairway Market in NY and The Fresh Market both going bankrupt. Trader Joes will have their troubles when Whole Foods encroaches on their low price small format concept this summer. Sell the Fresh Market, Fairway and buy Whole Foods if you believe organic food is not a passing phase.

While there are questions around their ultimate growth potential given increasing competition and its stumbles in the west, I think TFM still has a lot of room to grow from here. With its refocus back to its regional strongholds (and especially the south-east) over the next 3-5 years, it should experience above-average leverage from its new store openings where it already has great brand awareness, deep knowledge of customer preferences, and a strong established employee base. Hopefully 2015 will be the last year of large write-downs.

This store knows how to do business; a whole-foods like experience that caters to folks outside that organic-loving demographic.

After having shopped in Whole Foods, I think TFM is more user friendly and is not as expensive. It is a favorite place to shop, as it opens new markets, I feel it will continue to perform.

The secular trend is towards eating higher quality foods.

I guess I'm just a sucker for picking stuff that has solid growth and margins but gets slammed huge for missing expectations.

I went into a new fresh market in my area recently, first time being in one, and was overall impressed with the stores layout and the types of products they offered.

I had a chance to visit my first TFM this week and was very impressed. Great layout, what looks like premium products (like WFM) but at competitive prices.

Along with Whole Foods this company is leading the food retailing transition. Smaller market cap gives it more upside.

Organic and Health food will continue to sell Well. This stock is near the bottom of its 52 week range, P/E is much lower than market avg.

I HAVE VISITED WHOLE FOODS AND I WAS IMPRESSED. i VISITED THE FRESH MARKET AND COULD NOT RESIST. MY BILL AT THE CASH REGISTER WAS ALMOST $500.

Bad valuation. Stores are not nearly as nice as Whole Foods, staffed with less knowledgeable individuals, generally smaller, and worse selection. All around if you're looking for organic/premium food stock look at Whole Foods. A much better buy.

Fast growing, but only by virtue of rapid store expansion, both in number of stores and store size. Actual sales per square foot is lower than even underperformers like SUPERVALU. While one could make the argument that sales/sq. ft. is less relevant because TFM has such high margins, I would counter that Whole Foods (more of a competitor than a store like SUPERVALU) has double the sales with the same margin. But TFM is priced at least as richly as Whole Foods on a P/E basis, and on PEG basis it's far more expensive than Whole Foods. It'll be very difficult for TFM to live up to such lofty expectations.

If these guys don't get swallowed up by Whole Foods, they could become a force of their own.

TFM has been beaten up a lot over the last couple months. This is a strong company that is definitely worth more than its selling for.

It will probably be a more slowly developing company, just because of their business. However, people will realize its true intrinsic value soon enough to make an investment.
