A Sneak Peek Inside Davis’ New Whole Foods
If you haven’t heard already, Whole Foods is opening its fourth Sacramento-area store in downtown Davis this week. Now hungry travelers on their way to the Bay Area have yet another reason to pass through Davis, if simply for a fresh salad or made-to-order gourmet deli sandwich. Doors officially open at 10 a.m. this Wednesday, October 24.
Last week SacFoodies had the privilege to attend a private preview tour of the 19,741-square-foot store. The cozy retail space is packed to the brim and aptly decorated with bicycle-themed murals—a tribute to the local college town.
In addition to the usual trappings of fine cheeses, organic produce and specialty natural food brands, the Davis Whole Foods boasts a full-service kitchen that produces a wide array of prepared foods in addition to a deli, burrito station and extensive salad bar. I am most excited about the well-stocked bulk bins, which occupy a significant portion of floor space and offer everything from quinoa to cereal. UC Davis students will also particularly enjoy the indoor café and free Wi-Fi.
Finally, any other bread lovers out there? Word has it that the freshest loaves will be out of the ovens and onto the shelf at 5 p.m. each day. I’ll meet you there.
