Whole Foods Market¨ to open Fremont store September 25

Submitted By Jennifer Marples

Whole Foods Market opens its new Fremont store Wednesday, Sept. 25 with a bread-breaking ceremony at 9:45 a.m.; doors will open at 10 a.m. The first 250 shoppers will receive a free gift bag filled with Whole Foods Market signature items.

ÒWith our cool Tap Room, we also hope to become a community gathering spot Ð a place where folks can grab a drink, enjoy some great food and kick up their heels after a busy day,Ó said Pedro Fonseca, store team leader.

Local vendors including Perry Farms, Pozzi Lamb, Golnazar Ice Cream and Foolish Hens Farms will be well represented among the items offered at the new market. Selections include a large meat counter with special offerings, Artisan Bakery, Seafood, Prepared Foods, Produce, Grocery, Beer and Wine, Cheeses and specialty items from around the world. A drink bar, nut butters ground on site and health foods are among the unique products at the store. More than 40 olive and antipasti mixes and a savory station serving waffles and grilled cheese sandwiches set Whole Foods Market apart.
A special dining area is set aside along with free Wi-Fi and a ÒKidÕs ClubÓ for children ages 2-8, eligible to receive a free treat. Whole Foods catering services are also available.

Four times a year, Whole Foods Market sets aside a day on which five percent of the day's net sales is contributed to a local 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The Fremont store will kick off a special ÒWeek of GivingÓ on September 30; five one-percent days to benefit the following organizations:

Sept. 30: Fremont Leaf (environmental sustainability)
Oct. 1: Abode
Oct. 2: Fremont Education Foundation
Oct. 3: Tri City Volunteers
Oct. 4: East Bay Regional Parks Foundation

Also, when customers bring in their own bags for groceries they have the option of receiving a five-cent refund (per bag) or donating the money to a selected charity. The first non-profit beneficiaries are Furry Friends Rescue and Kidango.

One level three fast charger and one level two chargers are available in the parking lot. These will be managed by eVgo and customers will pay for use.
