Good morning, mon amies!
On this rainy Tuesday morning I have some sunny news for you! Today marks the grand opening of a new Whole Foods Market in Chevy Chase. In fact, right this very minute, as I type this very sentence, they are celebrating said opening with a Bread Breaking Ceremony.
If you're in the Chevy Chase area and have a hankering for some fresh veggies, stinky (but delicious!) cheeses, stupendous and hard-to-pronounce grains, or other healthy sundries, be sure to stop at Whole Foods. The store is located at 4420 Willard Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD 20815.
If today's rain keeps you locked up inside with a Snuggie and a good book, be sure to check the new market out on May 26th for their 5% and Food Drive Day. 5% of that day's sales (made between the hours of 10am and 7pm) will be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank and Manna Food Center. Staff from both will be on hand to accept non-perishable food donations and to engage customers about their programs.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Whole Foods! Thanks for stocking quinoa and wheat berries. I love that stuff!
