The area's selection of local produce, fresh seafood, prepared food, wine and cheese gets a healthy boost with today's opening of a Whole Foods Market in Carrollwood/Northdale, Tampa Bay's second location.

Opening festivities start at 8 a.m. with a free continental breakfast on the patio and entertainment by Gaither High School's marching band and cheerleaders.

Doors open at 9 a.m. after a bread-breaking ceremony, Whole Foods' twist on traditional ribbon cuttings.

The first 500 shoppers will receive a Whole Foods reusable bag filled with goodies.

Festivities continue through Monday with daily specials, live music, food samples, cooking demonstrations and more.

One percent of net sales during the first five days will go to local charities. Hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The store is located at 3802 Northdale Blvd., at the corner of Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa. The first Whole Foods opened in Tampa Bay five years ago.
