I had the opportunity to take a sneak-peek tour at the Whole Foods Market, located in the Northcross Commons shopping center in Huntersville. This opening has been quite the buzz lately – since Lake Norman residents won’t have to drive to South Charlotte anymore.
During the tour, I had a feast – sampling pineapple mango salsa, pulled pork, and even cupcakes! We all received a reusable bag filled with goodies at the end of the tour as well.
Whole Foods Market prides itself on providing the finest natural and organic foods available. They also follow the 3 R’s for their Green Mission : Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. The Huntersville store is beautifully decorated with reclaimed wood throughout, and also provides recycling and composting programs.
If you plan on going to the opening this Tuesday, November 4th, get there early! From 8:00-8:30 they will have a spinning wheel, where customers will get a chance to win gift cards. 8:45 is when they will “cut the bread” (instead of cutting the ribbon). Like swordfish? Whole Foods will be hosting a swordfish cutting event that morning for just $9.99 a pound.
The only issue I see myself having is where will I go first?? The Pickle Bar, Olive Bar, Coffee and Smoothie Bar? Maybe the 24-tap growler station or the burger bar with the build-your-own fries station?
If you can’t make it on opening day, theHuntersville Whole Foods Market is hosting a series of events this week. November 5th is “Wine Down Wednesday” with live music and wine sampling, starting at 5:00 pm. Thursday at 10:00 am is the “Healthy Eating Tour”, and Friday November 7thstarting at 5:00 pm is “$5 Burgers and Pints Night.”
