The Fresh Market produce section

The Fresh Market is hosting grand reopening events at all seven Triangle-area locations (incl. Fayetteville and Southern Pines) on Wednesday, 12/7 and Saturday, 12/10 including some great giveaways, sampling, live music, chef demonstrations and more!

Shoppers will discover a refreshed look at the specialty grocer on Wednesday, December 7, as the company reveals an enhanced shopping experience that stays true to its roots in offering fresh, delicious food, but re-imagines the market as a destination where guests can find an increased selection of local products, new categories including favorite grocery classics, and lower prices.

Updated signage throughout the store will now clearly designate departments, guide those shopping with dietary restrictions or food allergies, highlight organic products and inspire shoppers to explore new tastes.


Refreshed stores re-open on Wednesday, December 7 at 8 a.m.

Grand Reopening celebrations continue on Saturday, December 10
