Draeger’s Market at 342 First St. in Los Altos is scheduled to host a Spring Fest 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, with samples, food demonstrations and treats for kids and adults.
Each department has planned a different feature, ranging from flowers for visitors to balloons for kids, grilled chicken samples, make-your-own berry parfaits and tastings throughout the store.
A wine sale on Saturday will offer 20 percent off the purchase of six bottles of wine.
“Our goal is to remind customers that shopping for food is experiential – food should be seen, smelled and tasted,” said Victoria Draeger, the store’s marketing officer. “This is our local business’ way of bringing life into our brick-and-mortar retail.”
