Westport, CT - There's a New Market in Town

The Fresh Market 

Wednesday, October 14, 2009 brought the much anticipated opening of "The Fresh Market", in Westport, CT.  Local residents filled the parking lot, as they waited for the doors to open, at 9:00 A.M.  Throughout the morning, shoppers were offered free samples of coffee, sushi, flavored tea and other treats.  The first 1000 customers were invited to enter the Grand Opening TFM Pantry Giveaway, for a prize valued at approximately $500.

Fresh Market Corporate executives were available throughout the store, to speak to customers, listen to first impressions and answer questions about The Fresh Market and its products.  The store is positioned as an upscale specialty market.  The philosophy is to offer the service of an "Old Fashioned Grocery Store."  The store is designed to evoke the feeling of open European style markets.  Perishable items are available unpackaged for individual selection.  Store departments include meat, seafood, produce, cheese, bakery, coffee, grocery, dairy and floral.

The company is based in Greensboro, North Carolina. There are currently 92 Fresh Market stores, in 18 states.  Westport is the first New England store.  The next store will be opened in Boston, in April or May, 2010.

I've been hearing a lot about Fresh Market but didn't know that they had ventured "north".  It will be interesting to see how they do in your area.  Congratulations on covering something new in your area.

Hi Michael-  The market replaced Shaw's, a traditional supermarket.  I've heard some disappointment that another supermarket didn't come in.  However, as a specialty market, this new store looks appealing and the prices seem competitive with the other specialty markets, in town. Time will tell.
