Tid Bites: Grand Re-Opening Whole Foods on Pearl


Whole Foods Market Pearl Street has announced their grand reopening Aug. 13-14 and an outdoor benefit concert Aug. 19.

Now I, for one, am not sure I’m brave enough to risk that parking lot during a big event like this, but if you have a bike, or live within walking distance—or have a stronger constitution than I do—here’s the low-down on the re-opening weekend events:

  • Friday, Aug. 12, 10 a.m.: The official “Bread Breaking” and Grand Reopening.
  • Saturday, Aug. 13, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.: Live music, vendor demos and children’s activities.
  • Sunday, Aug. 14, 12 p.m.: Special lunch offered to shoppers prepared by the Kitchen’s Chef Hugo Matheson. All proceeds from the lunch event will benefit the Kitchen Community.
  • Sunday, Aug. 14: “Boulder Born” vendor fair featuring samples from more than 20 local producers, including Gluten Free Bistro, White Girl Salsa, Tres Pupusas and Evol Foods.
  • Friday, Aug. 19, 5 p.m.: Outdoor benefit concert featuring Todd Park Mohr and Jeremy Lawton of Big Head Todd and The Monsters, with openers Mollie O’Brien and Danielle Ate the Sandwich. Advance tickets available at the Pearl, Tamarac and Belmar Whole Foods Markets for $15 each. All ticket proceeds will benefit the Boulder Valley School District’s School Food Project.
