We invite the public to this free event that celebrates international food, wine, music and more.”

Customers who visit the Troy location will have the opportunity to meet Produce Prep Manager Sunny, who will be preparing one of her favorite salads from her native Korea. Additionally, Sunny will be in traditional Korean “Hanbok” dress, a beautiful ensemble characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines.

To help set the mood for the International Weekend, strolling music will be featured at both locations from noon to 4:00 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
