The first 200 guests will also receive a Whole Foods Market Tysons Corner reusable canvas tote bag and a savings card with a mystery value ranging between $5 and $100.
Inside, shoppers will find an in-house bakery; a full-service butcher department; a seafood department; a specialty foods section with hundreds of cheeses overseen by the in-store American Cheese Society-certified cheese professional; a hot and cold food bar; a full-service Allegro coffee and tea bar; and JRINK, a juice bar offering smoothies, smoothie bowls and cold-pressed juices.
