Wegmans Invites Shoppers to ‘Taste the Fall Harvest’
Wegmans Food Markets Inc. will hold a store-wide tasting event on Saturday, Oct. 21, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at all of its locations, to enable shoppers to try the best ingredients of autumn.
Taste the Fall Harvest offers free samples, new meal ideas and a chef demonstration of a “veggie flight” featuring three ways to prepare cauliflower: ricing, roasting and pureeing. Customers can also enter a drawing to win a dinner valued at more than $40, consisting of the grocer’s Ready to Cook Sunday Sauce, Italian Classics Organic Paccheri Rigati, Caesar Salad Kit, Apple Cider Golden Raisin Bread, Organic Apple Fruit Delight Yogurt, and apples.
At the interactive event, shoppers can visit stations set up in various store sections, including Roasted Squash & Apples (pictured) in produce, Grilled Chicken with Tom Tom Sauce and Carrot Puree Power Meal at the Market Café, Organic Fruit Delight Greek Yogurt in dairy, Wegmans Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream in frozen foods, and Shrimp with Blush Sauce & Veggies in the fresh seafood department.
Based in Rochester, N.Y., family-owned Wegmans operates 94 supermarkets in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
