The Fresh Market, Inc

 
Overview
After returning from a trip to Europe, Ray Berry and his wife Beverly were inspired to bring the charm and essence of an open, European-style food market to America. They wanted to offer a more intimate and personalized shopping experience than the warehouse-type supermarkets popular at the time.

While searching for the ideal place to make their dream a reality, the Berry’s fell in love with the quaint community of Greensboro, North Carolina. On March 5, 1982, the first The Fresh Market store opened in Greensboro on Lawndale Drive, where a store still stands today. Everything about this small, boutique specialty grocery store was designed to enhance the food shopping experience.

The original store became the blueprint for other locations to follow. Today, with 159 locations in 22 states, The Fresh Market is still committed to our original values of providing guests with inspiring, fresh food to make every day eating extraordinary.
