Eataly – the super popular and vibrant Italian marketplace with an array of authentic Italian restaurants, cafés, fresh counters, to-go eateries, bars and a variety of unique tailored educational experiences – is opening its brand new 45,000 square foot store at Westfield Valley Fair in San Jose on June 16, 2022. The new store is part of a $1 billion transformation of the Westfield Valley Fair Mall, with over 100 new shops and restaurants joining in the last few years.

The three-floor food emporium hosts its grand opening at 5 pm on June 16. Be the first to see the new store, plus they’ll have tastings and some giveaways too.

The massive market will feature over 10,000 local and authentic Italian products and wine from 20 regions in Italy. Plus, there will be numerous places to eat on site including two full-service restaurants plus a variety of fresh and quick-service counters offering coffee, gelato, pizza and more. The store is like a culinary theater; you’ll be able to watch the pizza being tossed, the bread being kneaded, and the pasta being pulled. If you want to see and learn more from the artisans, you can take part in their culinary experience in their cooking school.

The newest Eataly location will be the second in California, joining Los Angeles, and will mark the ninth North American location of the Italian company including Las Vegas, LA, Boston, Chicago, and two in New York City. Eataly has 41 stores worldwide today.
