Trader Joe's to open in October- Wake Forest Road

FINALLY what we have all been waiting for.....Trader Joe's in Raleigh!

How many of us have driven to Cary to go to Trader Joe's for "Two Buck Chuck?" Well as of October, or so we have been promised, we only have to drive to Holly Park Shopping Center, conveniently located at Wake Forest Road and Interstate 440. Lat Purser, a Charlotte company's Raleigh division has spent more than a year totally overhauling the shopping center.  Despite months of delays the exact date is still in limbo but the month has been established. Fans of the California grocer fretted as the project was delayed in the city approval process but Lat Purser installed a sign Wednesday in front of the now-under-construction store declaring "Trader Joe's Coming Soon". The 13,000-square-foot store will be fully enclosed in about two weeks and work on the building is expected to be completed in September said Chad Cooper, who is overseeing construction for Indiana-based MDC Construction.

27th Hillsborough Hog Day & Cook Off!

Posted by Lisabeth Tunell:

This years festival runs Friday 6 to 11 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with an eat-local theme.

The festival attracting more than 25,000 people will feature live music, food, a car show and children's games. On Saturday, a locally raised pig will be roasted all day and served to the crowd.

Organizers could not find a local organic farmer who could supply 3,000 lbs of meat for Saturday's pork cook-off, they did purchase hams and shoulders from pitmaster Ed Mitchell's network of Eastern North Carolina farmers, who raise pigs that are hormone-free, antibiotic-free and fed all-natural grain.

Mitchell, who co-owns The Pit in Raleigh, will not only judge Friday's ribs cook-off between 9 and 11 p.m. but then at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Mitchell will then judge the shoulders and hams cook-off with the help of Walter Royal, executive chef of Raleigh's Angus Barn and the musical chef Mel Melton of Papa Mojo's Roadhouse. Should be an interesting event......
