The Fresh Market
Your neighborhood food market and premium local produce store
For over thirty years, The Fresh Market has brought you the freshest, most delicious quality products from around the corner and around the globe. What started in Greensboro, North Carolina as a dream has grown into a refreshing reality with 168 stores in 27 states across the nation. Each one a part of the local community. Each one dedicated to providing the freshest and best local ingredients.
Back in 1982, our founders decided to open a store that was different from the giant industrialized grocery stores of the time. They wanted to open a smaller store that focused on the customer and the shopping experience. They wanted to create an open-air market with old-world charm, stocked with fresh meats, seafood, fruits, and vegetables. They wanted the store to be “a fresh concept in grocery shopping.”
Bringing the European style market stateside was just the beginning. Step inside The Fresh Market and you’ll notice a rustic feel complimented by old-world charm, warm lighting and classical music that provide an inviting atmosphere. This truly makes shopping at The Fresh Market an experience unlike any other.
Enjoy a fresh brewed sample cup of java as you stroll down the aisles. You will quickly see what sets us apart. We put our meats and seafood behind refrigerated glass, not inside plastic wrapped foam trays, so you can select the freshest cut. Our store is loaded with the freshest produce, bin after bin of fresh roasted coffee beans, and hard-to-find grocery items from around the globe.
