By Lynn Ponder: My Sunday started out of course on the computer like I do everyday but I needed a break and got on my bike and rode it all the way to South Beach, as I wanted to see the South Beach Wine & Food Festival action. Beach was packed and even ran into Jason Inasi from The Factory Interactive which was so cool, as I had not seen him in a longtime.
A couple of hours on the bike and I was ready for the second part of my day which included an invite by Walgreens new initiative Up Market Fresh to attend the Trucks on Midtown Tracks hosted by Andrew Zimmeran from the travel channel as part of South Beach Wine & Food Festival. I asked Andrew who did his social media and it was a sweet girl called Molly who I met briefly and told her I was tweeting a lot including some Vine videos and tagging Andrew to see if she would retweet but she didn’t
My main reason to be at this event was to learn all about Walgreens NEW concept Up Market Fresh. I learned that is all about fresh and healthy options. For Moms and busy parents no need to run somewhere else anymore, as in one stop they could get healthy snacks while running errands at Walgreens with the convenience of using balance rewards to get points and money back for future purchases. Check out a couple of videos I created with the Vine app finding my way around the event.
First Vine 6 seconds video at my arrival:
I have a feeling that most of us who are regulars at Walgreens will appreciate purchasing fresh, happy and healthy food through the Up Market Fresh concept. Like the fact that they are trying new things from fresh squeeze orange juice, carrot sticks with celery and dip to a panini caprese. They also have their own yogurt machine called Fro-yo with a sweet bar that was very yummy.
Second Vine 6 seconds video about my Up Market Fresh Walgreens experience:
Guess what they have some bus tour dates in Miami and if you want to be Happy Healthy, I exhort you to check them out. Walgreens calls the bus/food truck the Well Experience Store.
