Whole Foods Market will be making their first appearance in Tahoe at the 10th Annual Sample the Sierra Festival!
With a planned opening in November 2019, Whole Foods will be located in Bijou Market in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, and the health food supermarket giant is bringing much more to town than just high-quality groceries. The company has been dedicated to community involvement before even opening its doors, including joining the 10th Annual Sample the Sierra festival as the Sierra Chef Challange Pantry Sponsor.
The company will be providing the pantry ingredients for the 8th Annual Sierra Chef Challenge, which will be a Chopped-style cooking competition including five local chefs each cooking against each other using a mystery box of ingredients. The chefs will each have to complete two dishes which will be judged on creativity, presentation, taste, and use of secret ingredients. Learn more about the chefs competing here.
Whole Foods will be creating product displays at Sample the Sierra and donating the product to Christmas Cheer following the event. They will also be featuring two local vendors at their tent; Tahoe Bar and Blind Dog Coffee Roasters. Make sure to stop by their booth for a free swag bag giveaway with exclusive Whole Foods Market Tahoe branded bag.
