There’s a new Whole Foods Market in town: Whole Foods Market Metuchen. If you’re in New Jersey like us, head to Metuchen this week to check out the grand opening of the new Whole Foods Market. The store is located at 645 Middlesex Avenue and is the first Whole Foods Market in Middlesex County and the 18th location in New Jersey. We’re big Whole Foods Market shoppers and love visiting different locations so I’ll be heading to see this one soon.
One of the coolest things about visiting different locations is checking out the in store restaurants. We eat at our local Whole Foods Market all the time because the restaurant is super kid friendly and has great food. At the new Whole Foods Market in Metuchen, there’s the Comida Fresca Restaurant. This brand new restaurant and bar will feature a fresh modern Mexican menu boasting signature guacamoles, agua frescas and tacos. Both indoor and outdoor seating will be available, and customers can choose from a variety of hand-crafted margaritas made with fresh citrus as well as 12 draft beers.
The Metuchen store will also serve a number of Whole Foods Market customers’ favorites: freshly baked pizza, sushi rolled in-house daily, the hot food bar and the salad bars offering healthy, vegan and seasonal salads. There’s also a coffee and juice bar.
Something new in the Whole Foods Market Metuchen is Asian BBQ. This is a new concept for Whole Foods where healthy, customizable stir-fry bowls are cooked to order, with paleo-friendly ingredients like zucchini noodles and cauliflower rice available.
On opening day, Wednesday October 11th, Whole Foods Market Metuchen will host a 5 percent community giving day, benefitting the Borough Improvement League of Metuchen’s efforts to preserve the historic Old Franklin Schoolhouse. Five percent of the day’s net sales will be donated to help upgrade the schoolhouse’s sustainability and energy efficiency capabilities.
