This year we made our way into Whole Foods Market locations on the east coast with more locations to come. We are so thrilled to be on the Whole Foods shelves alongside all of the best brands in the healthy food and drink industries, and we have been lucky enough to participate in some of their awesome in-store and local community events. Here's a roundup of some of our favorite Whole Foods events so far:
Paramus & Ridgewood - Back in May Säpp teamed up with Whole Foods Paramus and Whole Foods Ridgewood along with the Teaneck Creek Conservatory, a non-profit environmental center in Bergen County, NJ for Springfest with the theme "Water and Wellness." The event included environmental presentations, tours through the park, live music, and of course, what's better to showcase the theme of Water and Wellness than Säpp Birch water?!
Fairfield, CT - On June 1st we helped Whole Foods Fairfield celebrate their 5th Birthday with a special outdoor BBQ. Säpp was on hand to hydrate everyone on this super fun summer kick-off celebration.
Princeton, NJ - On the afternoon of June 18th we participated in the Giving Grill event at Whole Foods Market Princeton to benefit the US Rowing Team who were on site before heading to the Games in Rio. The event included an awesome BBQ and featured some of Whole Foods' finest, including Säpp Birch Water to fuel the athletes and event-goers. We had such a blast sending off the rowers and wish them the best of luck at the Games this summer. Go Team, GO!
Annapolis, MD - June 19th we hydrated yogis for a free outdoor Rooftop Yoga event, hosted by Whole Foods Annapolis and lululemon athletica and led by instructor Tina Lanzoni. The event was held on the roof of the Whole Foods garage, and participants enjoyed a light breakfast and hydrating Säpp Birch water afterwards to seal in the goodness of their practice.
Upper West Side, NY - On June 19th we participated in the very first Harlem One-Mile Race along with Whole Foods Upper West Side, and presented by Harlem United and Harlem Run. Harlem Run is a community group based in Harlem that meets once a week to run together in the neighborhood. This was their very first big event, and hundreds of runners signed up to participate. Säpp was on the scene to hydrate the runners and cheer them on.
Danbury, CT - Most recently, we celebrated the 4th of July with a BBQ at the Danbury Fair Mall, which is across the street from Whole Foods Danbury. There were thousands of people in attendance to watch fireworks, live music, and of course, enjoy lots of food and drink, including Säpp Birch Water to keep the crowd hydrated into the night.
Columbus Circle, NY - Today, June 13th, we're joining Whole Foods Columbus Circle and Lincoln Square BID for the Lincoln Square Summer Lunchtime Concert Series at Richard Tucker Park on 66th Street and Broadway from 12PM-2PM. Stop by and enjoy your lunch outside with live music and Säpp Birch Water. Hope to see you there!
Your Local Store! - Be sure to follow us on Twitter for up-to-date info on events in your area and sampling information. We know how much you'll love Säpp once you try it, so we'll be sampling all three birch water flavors at Whole Foods locations where Säpp is sold regularly.
