Whole Foods Opens Tomorrow
A friend sent in this tip on Whole Foods and other Vulcan complex tenants:
The downtown Whole Foods Market opens at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, with a bread breaking ceremony; a 4- to 6-foot long baguette will be torn into, before the crowds spill into the store to sample the wares. Also opening in the 2200 Westlake Ave. Vulcan complex (in addition to snazzy condos—talk about “whole paycheck”!) is Koots Green Tea, the second stateside location for this Japanese tea emporium (after Bellevue), which will offer such strange new delicacies as matcha lattes (made from young gyokuro green tea leaves), as well as hand-rolled sushi.
