Prince George’s County to Open First Whole Foods

Organic-food grocer Whole Foods Market is gearing up for the grand opening of its first Prince George’s County store.

The opening is set for Wednesday, April 12, at 6621 Baltimore Avenue in Riverdale Park, near the University of Maryland’s College Park campus.

Area resident Janet Cunningham relished the prospect of the new natural organic store.

“I live in P.G. County and have always found it hard to make my way to a reasonably located Whole Foods,” Cunningham said. “I love Whole Foods, so now to be able to have closer options to more healthier food in what many consider a ‘black’ area is really cool.”

The 40,000-square-foot store will have self-serve fresh brewed coffee and espresso, cold brew coffee and tea, six varieties of cold-pressed juice on tap, scratch bread made daily, smoked fish and hand-tossed, wood-fired pizza.

Customers will also be able to provide real-time feedback via text — no forms, no surveys — and enjoy custom superfruit acai bowl bars and self-serve mochi.

Team leaders for the new Riverdale store share her enthusiasm.

“We’re excited to join Riverdale’s vibrant and growing community with the opening of our first Whole Foods Market in Prince George’s County,” said Pia DaSilva, the Riverdale store’s team leader. “The store will include many new and locally sourced and seasonal products that meet our high quality standards. Whether you come for the hand-tossed pizza, the custom acai bowl bar or the six types of cold-pressed juice on draft, the store will be a great addition to Riverdale and a new gathering place for the community.”

To inaugurate the event, a community bread-breaking ceremony will take place at 8:45 a.m.
