It seems Whole Foods Market has the right idea when it comes to assimilating into a community—not that they even need to, their products practically speak for themselves, but what a classy touch!—from local products to charming western style, the new Davie store is a country chic haven. Created to replace the recently closed Plantation store, which was less than a mile away, this beauty will offer customers everything they have come to expect from Whole Foods with—what’s more—a touch of southern hospitality. I didn’t see the previous location, which opened its doors 20 years ago, but it’s safe to say they gave the community a major upgrade with new features custom fit with love and careful consideration to the natives. I don’t live in Davie, but after seeing the new market I think my cowgirl boots will fit in quite nicely.
While in attendance at their blogger sneak peak, we were able to preview the 45,000 sq. ft. of freshly displayed sustenance which was ornately organized for optimal functionality. The flow of this sprawling layout gives you that “kid in a candy store” kind of feeling. It’s fabulously equipped with all the strictly sustainable departments that provide you with the highest industry standards available (i.e. butcher shop, produce, all natural bakery etc.), but this locale will have a host of unique features to get excited about, such as the fully dedicated childrens aisle, and exclusive offerings of handmade dim sum in the prepared food section!! If anyone else shares my love and passion for Asian cuisine, feel free to be giddy with joy.
The Watering Hole
The in house beer and wine bar will be serving up craft beer, and kombucha on tap, a variety of charcuterie and tapas to choose from to be enjoyed on a family style wooden high-top table, you’ll feel like it’s happy hour all day. And what Whole Foods Market would be complete without a brick oven pizza station??? I’m salivating just thinking about biting into the cheesy truffle mushroom deliciousness topped off with a mixed arugula salad.
Whole Foods supports local and artisan products made with love, but I was particularly excited to see them carry a little piece of my heritage.
Versailles Desserts will be included in the natural bakery section in individually packaged confections from this Miami institution. From rice pudding to flan de queso. A perfect serving of Cuban comfort.
The Whole Foods in Davie will be launching its grand opening TODAY February 11th with a generous giveaway for the first 500 customers in line. These enthusiastic health fanatics will receive mystery gift cards valued at $5, $10, $20 or $50, with one special card valued at $500!
