McKinney said the fair will feature samples and tastings of some 40 food and beverage vendors products stationed inside and outside the store. Also as part of the fair will be wine tasting, artisanal food demonstrations, "old-timey" games and a bounce house and face painting for children. Live music will be provided from 1-3 p.m. by the six-member rock and roll Max Cruise band from Livermore.
Admission to the event is free. Two $5 barbequed lunch specials will be offered at New Leaf's Goodness Grill: a barbequed Smart Chicken sausage served with garlic bread and salad, or veggie burger, and bottled water.
New Leaf opened its doors at 3550 Bernal Ave. in Pleasanton on May 15, offering food, nutrition and body care products. Especially popular, according to McKinney, are the store's large selection of fresh seasonal produce, natural and organic meats, and sustainable seafood. Also popular are features patterned after those in other New Leaf stores, including a deli, fresh salad bar, antipasta bar, hot bar, juice bar, sushi, gourmet cheeses and local wines.
"I am so happy New Leaf came to Pleasanton," said New Leaf customer Canna Yamamoto. "I am here at least three times a week. Yea for local and organic!"
