As we previously reported, Whole Foods will be opening their new Stanyan Street (Haight) location this coming Wednesday, February 16th at 8 AM. The event will feature a traditional bread breaking demo at 9:45 AM and the presentation of a $47,480 loan check to Marin’s Rustic Bakery as part of their Local Producer Loan Program (LPLP) (seems odd they didn’t choose a San Francisco producer).
They’ll also be hosting the “Good Food Celebration” this Sunday, February 13th from 12 noon – 4 PM. From their press release:
This event will be held in the parking lot and feature ethnic foods from La Cocina members and an assortment of specialty beers from neighborhood favorite Magnolia Brewery, among others. Admission is free and all food items are priced under $5. All profits made from beer sales will go directly back to La Cocina to support its incubator programs for low income food entrepreneurs.
Park Branch Library
After an extensive $2.9 million renovation, the 101 year old Park Branch Library at 1833 Page Street will be having their Grand Reopening on Saturday, February 26th at 1 PM. If you can’t make it, stay tuned to Cole Valley Alley for plenty of photos/details from the event.
Off The Grid
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the food truck sensation known as Off The Grid every Thursday from 4 – 8:30 PM at Waller & Stanyan Streets. Choose from several delicious options including Indian, Korean, Southern, Mexican, Californian, cupcakes, coffee, and more!
