Shoppers can get a taste Saturday of what's to come during a pre-opening party hosted by Whole Foods Market at its new Folsom store, located at 270 Palladio Parkway in the Palladio shopping center.
Called "Folsom Street Market," the event will be held in the new store's parking lot from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
More than 60 local vendors will offer product samples as well as beer and cider tasting. Kids can enjoy a haybale maze and pumpkin patch. Shoppers also can take a tour of the new 45,000-square-foot store.
Next week, this Whole Foods Market - the chain's third outlet in the greater Sacramento area - opens to the public. A bread breaking ceremony will be held at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, followed by live music, beer tasting and children's activities.
On opening day, the first 250 Folsom shoppers to enter the store will receive a reusable shopping bag filled with Whole Foods Market products.
