It may be above average in prices, & the selection may not be as broad as other grocery stores, but their customer service was INCREDIBLE!!! I swung by here to buy some flowers for my girlfriend, on a Sunday night, & I received such great service! Andy, working the cash register, asked me if I needed any help & assistance. After I chose some flowers, which didn’t look too great, he had Ashley help me; Ashley, is the florist & was working in the bakery to help out. They were both so helpful!! After a week, my flowers still look great!! Thank you so much guys!!!

The Fresh Market is the perfect combination of small town grocery store and high-end meat and produce market. I don't typically pay a premium for my groceries, but in an area like Durham where typical supermarkets can be hectic and subpar I'm more than willing to pay that extra 10% so have a peaceful shopping experience with awesome customer service.

Fresh Market is a solid alternative to Whole Foods, the Co-opt grocery stores or another high end stop. You'll find quality products, hard to find mushrooms and spices and top tier beer and wine. If you're struggling to find leeks or bok choy, they'll have it. Or if you're looking for trumpet mushrooms; yesterday they had them. I wouldn't recommend this as your stop for $0.59 cans of beans or bud light, but it's catering to a different crowd and doing so well.

Fresh Market is a relaxing place to grocery shop even though it it is more expensive. With that, you can get items there not found elsewhere and their meat department knows no equal by far. Thanks guys and their employees are friendly and helpful.

This store is so beautiful, soothing and calming. Lots to explore in the aisles, unique and high quality merchandise from top to bottom. It is always clean and well organized and everything is clearly labeled, no need for quess work here. The floral section has so much to offer...including orchids. I'm so glad I live nearby and can easily shop here whenever I want to or oder through Instacart.

We have used the Fresh Market to cater my companies client socials and everything is awesome! Recently we needed a turkey for a last minute staff Friendsgiving. Everyone was out of them and couldn't get a turkey to us until the week of Thanksgiving. I spoke to the manager and accommodated our last minute request. The turkey was cooked to perfection so moist and juicy it was hot when I got it. The staff is very professional & they definitely exceeding our expectations. We will be using The Fresh Market for our future events! Thank you :-)

Full disclosure, I used to help manage a Fresh Market location before switching careers, so I’m probably more critical than most customers. The deli department is excellent here, the deli manager (I believe, I sadly didn’t get her name yesterday) made some take and bake Brie’s for me ahead of time which was really sweet and she didn’t have to offer. They were ready when I came to pick up and the other employee there knew when I’d come to pick up. Very smooth. All of the employees at the deli are always friendly and offer to help pretty much immediately, but this experience got me to leave a review! Be sure to order thanksgiving/holiday meals ahead of time, they do get slammed on those big days. To management, take care of your good deli employees! Everything is always super clean and I have a great experience. Front end is always friendly as well. I don’t really shop for other items so I can’t speak for the rest of the store, but these two depts nail it from a customer perspective.

This is a smaller grocery store with everything you need. You can get in and out in reasonable time. The staff is helpful.

Great deals each week in the deli and meat counter. $5 sushi Wednesday! Delicious rotisserie chickens for $5 on Thursday and family meals for $12 on Sunday. They have produce I have never heard of before. Bulk snacks and nuts are a favorite! Sometimes things are sold out because they are truly a fresh market.

Great little min-whole foods here. I like that, despite having a smaller footprint, they still have deli food and prepared food available. Great selection and helpful staff.

But i want be shopping here much . Their prices are very high and the organic vegetables. Are not that fresh and very over priced Different between organic and regular vegetables one is grown without fertilizer and one is. So why pay more for vegetables when you can wash away the fertilizer before eating or cooking

The store looks amazing and they offer a large variety of great produce. The issue is some of their products are not the best quality especially for the price you are paying. Their deli is amazing though and the fresh cuts of meat look delicious.

Love shopping here! So many interesting items that are not available in other stores. Can get pricey easily but worth it.

Great variety. Really nice staff. And the only place to get fresh harvested Hatch green chile from New Mexico. Carlos was amazing and so patient, and he realized how important this chile is to me. It seemed a little harder to get this year, but he kept trying and I was thrilled to bring home a box of my hot Hatch chile.

Loved the sales and the store smelled amazing with all the flowers! The cashier's cashiers we're very nice, too. However, the deli had food on the hot bar that looked burned it was so dry, the ladies seemed disinterested in their job altogether and when I asked about the pizza deal she started talking to her coworker about how I actually had to ask about it...

Great market. Been goin to Fresh Market locations for years. Best breads in state. Great deserts too. Only problem is a bit pricey. They have good veggies, bulk candy and meats. Highly recommend.

I love Fresh Market. Your organic, natural type of grocery store. They have a bakery section. Most items taste so fresh. One time I wanted to surprise my coworkers with muffins. Not at this location but to the one in Roanoke, VA I placed an order 2 days ahead and was able to get the muffins I wanted. They were excited. That's when i discovered you can place orders ahead of time even for cooked food ahead of time. Back to this location, customer service is welcoming. A produce guy saw I had what he called a bad banana in my had and refused to let me to take it. I told him to me it just looked brown and I was going to get it home and make a smoothie. He said "Ma'am you go shop, I'm going in the back and find you some decent looking bananas." Sure enough he found with some great looking bananas. Thank you Durham location for going above and beyond. By the way, they have an awesome vitamin section.

I've shopped here off and on for about 20 years. Everything is top of the line. Store is extremely clean. There's always fresh coffee that rotates the stores own brand. They have everything from plants and cards to wonderful varieties of fish and a smorgasbord of meat. You will pay a few pennies more here, but the difference in quality is well worth it. There are clean restrooms and soft music. I hate going to grocery stores, but not this one! Connie

The quality of the items I purchased way very good. I found a strawberry rhubarb pie that was the best.

Prefer this over Whole Foods and every other grocery store by far! Great deals at the deli and the staff is always so helpful and friendly. Delicious food and nice selection. Not crazy crowded and stressful like Trader Joe’s.

Love the meat and produce sections. The weekly meal deals are wonderful especially the Salmon with zucchini packets. Though, check expiration dates for items in dairy section.

I have visited this store several times and was pleased with the food as well as the helpful and courteous staff. This past weekend I ordered several party platters and I was delighted with the food and the way it was presented. Everything was absolutely beautiful. My guests were impressed. I will definitely order from you again. Thank you.
