Zanotto’s First Annual Wine and Food Festival

Willow Glen has been without a grocery store since the Safeway on Curtner shut down, and before that the Albertson’s on Bird, and we’re STILL waiting for that Fresh and Easy.  So the neighborhood waited with baited breath when we heard Zanotto’s was moving into a store at Foxworthy and Cherry.

As Joann reported here, now that the store is open you’ll find the quality level one expects from a family market like Zanotto’s as well as the friendly and knowledgeable staff just on the outskirts of Willow Glen.

To celebrate Zanotto’s Willow Glen is having a special Grand Opening celebration with their first annual “Wine and Food Festival” on Aug. 28.

Local wineries will be on hand to offer great wines and There will be food paired with it from the store’s deli, the BBQ and vendors on hand to sample their products too.

There will be entertainment for the kids with a strolling magician, a face painter and a balloon artist along with a band. Prizes, including a mountain bicycle and a portable basketball backboard will be given away throughout the day. Surprise prizes and gift baskets will also be given throughout the day.

Doors will open at 8:00 AM with an official ribbon cutting at 11:00 AM., and city Council members Pierluigi Oliverio and Judy Chirco and Pat Dando, President of the San Jose Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to officially open the store located at 1421 Foxworthy Ave. San Jose, CA.

Zanotto’s Willow Glen Market – Open!

This morning just after 9 AM a crowd of shoppers began to gather at the door of the new Zanotto’s on Foxworthy Ave. As we waited for the 10 AM opening we enjoyed complementary doughnuts from Krispy Kreme – Mountain View, and talked about how happy we all were to get such a quality market in the Willow Glen area.

My first impression on entering the store was good. The layout and shelf set-up felt comfortable and pleasing. The produce looked very fresh and inviting. I picked up two containers of beautiful organic raspberries. Marty Threlkeld offered me a tasty sample cup of Evolution. My next find was a carton of Marrianne’s Ice Cream. Yes, from Santa Cruz!

At the meat counter I talked with Rick Zanotto about chicken and beef. He assured me that they only sell California chicken, which is important to me. And I also learned that they carry Piedmont beef by Montana Ranch Brand.

They have a good selection of wine including Zanotto’s own label. If you have shopped in Zanotto’s there is no need for me to go on and on about the deli, but oh the panini sandwiches!
