Grand Opening of Whole Foods Market in Oxnard, Ca

How many of you out there shop at Whole Foods Market?

I'm excited to announce, a brand new store opened on June 19th in Oxnard, Ca at 650 Town Center Drive, which is in The Collection at Riverpark shopping center!

This is the second Whole Foods Market in Ventura County, and the Oxnard store boasts over 30,000 square feet of space. This market is huge, and chocked full of amazing features!

Whole Foods is amazing about tailoring it's stores, to reflect the community where it resides. Oxnard is considered an "agricultural hub," so this store features many farmers and artisans that are based in the area.  This store is committed to offering locally sourced products & produce, and they sell items from more than 100 local vendors from Ventura County, and nearby Los Angeles County.

Oxnard is located within close proximity to the Channel Islands. This store's design elements are inspired by the islands, with bright colors reflecting the natural elements of the ocean, sky and nearby hills, as well as patterns inspired by sea vegetation and sea life.
