More and more, it seems like the eighth month of year is really all about the one that follows. That’s probably because, for most of us, it takes that long to go from somewhat “scheduled” days of summer to the back-to-business days of fall. That’s where the team at your local Festival Foods in Madison can help!
They’ve got a ton of great resources to help get you ready for the swing-of-things season of early morning bus rides, late afternoon practices and all the other hustle and bustle of school. Those resources start with information about great deals before you even get to their store at 810 East Washington Avenue and continue all the way until you get home with delicious and easy recipe ideas and expert nutrition information.
Speaking of grocery shopping … we know shopping with kids can be tricky, which is why we love that they offer free supervised child care at our Tot Spot for their guests! This is a super fun place for kids from 18 months to 7 years old to play for up to an hour while their parents do their grocery shopping. The kiddos get to play with craft supplies, race tracks, books, puzzles, dolls and so much more!
They’ve also got plenty of ways to help you save money while you’re shopping.
You can sign up for their Boomerang Weekly email, which includes grocery ads, specials, coupons, recipes and much more delivered right to your inbox. It’s a quick and easy way to plan your shopping trip!
Follow Festival Foods on Facebook and you can participate in some really fun giveaways and get some good recipe ideas and healthy eating tips. They even host live video broadcasts on a variety of topics, including reading nutrition labels and eating gluten free. You can follow them on Twitter and Instagram, where their registered dietitian Emily takes over each Wednesday for #EatWellwithEmily!
And you guys have got to check out the Insider website, which has tons of details about amazing seasonal recipes as well as store activities and great meal deals. They send out some really great deals through text messages to members of their Mobile Text Club so be sure to sign up for that!
