The Fresh Market began with our founders Ray and Beverly Berry, who opened their first store in Greensboro, North Carolina in March of 1982. In the past 30+ years, the company has grown to 180+ locations, building on the original vision of a better grocery store with the feeling of open European-style markets and a strong emphasis on customer service. Our mission is to make everyday eating extraordinary and our core belief is to make every day at work a great day.
