The new Whole Foods Market on the west side of Cary on Thursday announced its opening date, along with a donation-only kickoff concert by Chatham County Line.

The store inside the new Alston Town Center will open at 9 a.m. on Nov. 7 with product demonstrations and samples. The first 500 customers will receive gift cards ranging from $5 to $50, and one $500 card.

The first 50 people in line when the doors open at 9 a.m. will receive loaves of bread made by La Farm Bakery, which is opening its third Cary location inside the Whole Foods.

Leading up to the opening, the store will host a fund-raising concert by Chatham County Line on Nov. 4. The price of admission to the 5 p.m. concert is at least $1; all proceeds plus 5 percent of opening day sales will be donated to Good Hope Farm, an agricultural heritage organization.

Concert tickets are available online at Eventbright.com.

The 40,000-square-foot market is at 5055 Arco St. on N.C. 55. In addition to the La Farm Bakery, it will sell beer growlers and have a cauliflower rice bar along with the grocer’s usual “build a meal” section of main and side dishes.

Whole Foods Market is one of several grocery stores that have recently selected Cary.
