The Fresh Market Inc. has opened a second store in Carmel, Indiana, an Indianapolis suburb. The location is the fifth in the state and 160th overall.
To celebrate the grand opening, a celebration featuring a “bread breaking” ceremony, vendor sampling, specialty presentations, giveaways and drawings was held on May 24 to officially welcome Carmel guests to The Fresh Market. The store will be offering special deals and promotions throughout Memorial Day weekend.
The store, located at 1392 S. Rangeline Road, offers a selection of fresh produce, meats, seafood and bakery items, as well as a variety of prepared foods, a large gourmet cheese selection and wines. It features a floral department and a center store culinary kitchen called The Square. Guests can shop a made-to-order station featuring hot soups, customizable burrito bowls and wraps, torta and Cuban sandwiches and build your own salads.
Guests can also choose from an assortment of fresh hot foods including roasted salmon, in-house slow roasted pulled pork with signature sauce, Yukon gold mashed potatoes, in-house fried chicken and hot sides. All items are created with distinct flavors, fresh ingredients and recipes developed by The Fresh Market. Customers can also visit The Fresh Market’s $0.99 Coffee by the Cup, which offers an array of curated flavors, including seasonal blends.
“We’re proud to expand in the Carmel community and provide guests with an inspired, unique shopping experience that will pique the interest of food lovers,” said Jason Potter, CEO of The Fresh Market.
“Our team has worked hard to create a store that not only offers the freshest and highest-quality products, but also provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our guests.”
Guests will also be able to sign up and start saving with The Fresh Market’s The Ultimate Loyalty Experience. Members of the program can take advantage of loaded and curated member-only loyalty offers, digital coupons and “The Club Hub” purchase frequency programs, which allow guests to earn free items or dollars off items and a free slice of “Ultimate Birthday Cake” during the member’s birthday month.
The new store is open from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. seven days a week. Customers can also shop online with curbside pickup or home delivery through The Fresh Market’s website or mobile app.
In addition, The Fresh Market supports the communities it serves through Feeding America food banks. The new store in Carmel has partnered with the Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana to donate food to people in need.
