Kings Food Markets (Kings) debuts its newly inspired store in Garwood, N.J., with a weekend-long summer tasting event for the community, beginning Friday, May 23.  Customers will have an opportunity to participate in exclusive tastings, nutritionist consultations, and chef demonstrations while experiencing the store’s new features, including an expanded gourmet candy section, Wi-Fi enabled indoor-café, expanded floral area, and new olive and mezze bars, where customers can bring their creativity to Kings’ prepared meals and try a variety of delicious dishes, such as marinated chickens, fresh pickles, falafels, coleslaw and hot peppers.

The event will also mark the 2014 launch of Kings’ exclusive 24 Hour Just Picked Promise – a commitment to make locally grown, farm-fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs available to shoppers within 24 hours of being picked. Kings’ Just Picked Promise gives shoppers the benefits of a local farm stand in the convenience of their neighborhood food markets.

The celebration begins Friday, May 23 at 11:00 a.m. with Kings’ signature pasta-ribbon cutting ceremony, including special remarks from Garwood Mayor Patricia Quattrocchi, Kings President & CEO Judy Spires, COO Rich Durante and Store Manager Brien Delp. During the event, Kings will make a monetary donation to the Westfield Food Pantry at Holy Trinity, an organization dedicated to assisting individuals within the Union County area by offering food supplies and other services.
