The Fresh Market being sold

From MSN

They haven’t made much of a dent in the market since they came to Houston a couple of years ago. There isn’t one near me but I do go out of my way sometimes - I like some of their baked goods particularly.

I look forward to seeing what changes this brings.

The one here in NW Arkansas ushered in a huge improvement in variety and quality of food available (although to be fair a local store laid the groundwork, opening a “gourmet grocery” in a gas station that couldn’t compete when FM moved in). Our higher-end grocery chain had to spruce up a bit and expand its fresh offerings to compete, at least in neighborhoods with money to spend.

About all I make the trip out there for is their Tuesday $2.99/lb boneless skinless breasts, once in a long while. The meat counter folks swear they have no liquid added to them or anything, but either way they usually cook up very well.

Help cover Hungry Onion's costs when you shop at Amazon!
