Whole Foods Market has become my "go-to" shopping destination for my family. My #1 priority is providing the highest quality of food for my children. What I love the most about Whole Foods Market is that they do all the work for me. I know that everything I purchase in their store is the highest quality food I can find. I know that I can find grass-fed beef at reasonable prices, honey from local beekeepers and milk that is hormone free.
Every time I am at Fashion Island, I can't help but get excited about the upcoming opening of the new store. Everyday it gets one day closer to another market opening where I can shop for my family.
The new Whole Foods Market is going to be opening on September 19th at 9am. The new store location will include:
- An in-house executive chef
- A locally sourced meat department with 100% grass-fed beef, chicken and turkey
- An in-house bakery where bread will be baked fresh daily (including gluten-free options)
- 48 feet of local beers
- Over 1300 gluten-free items including frozen and dairy foods
- Step cleaning program in the juice bar
- indoor/outdoor seating for 150 with free Wi-Fi
One of the features of the new store location that I am the most excited about is the "Tea Hive." It is going to be the first fusion cafe and tea bar where customers can design their own custom teas. Specialty drinks will be made in martini shakers by a "Tea Tender." One of the featured drinks is going to be a Pomarita! It is a blend of pomegranate and tart lime with green tea, chocolate chai, black tea, spiced chair, chocolate and cinnamon. Doesn't that sounds heavenly?
The other fantastic feature of this new store location is the Back Bay Tavern. The tavern will have seating for 150 people and a rotating selection of 24 craft beers on tap, plus wine and spirits. There will be an extensive menu available that will include beef, seafood, vegetarian and vegan meals.
Do I have you excited yet?
In honor of the grand opening of the new store location in Newport Beach, Whole Foods Market is hosting a special Facebook photo contest. Customers can submit their favorite picture showing what they love about Newport Beach on the Whole Foods Newport Beach Facebook page for a chance to win a private party suite for 10 at the Newport Hyatt Jazz Series!
Disclosure: I was compensated by Whole Foods Market to write about the opening of the event. My love for their company and all my thoughts about how great Whole Foods Market it are all my own.
