The Fresh Market Gets A Refresh

If you've been in Cameron Village the last few months you probably saw all the construction activity around The Fresh Market. They have been busy "refreshing" all their area stores including the store at Cameron Village. Not only were there changes made in the layout and design of the store, you will now find an increased selection of local products, and new sections in the store including health, mind & body, household items, pet, and baby food and items. AND you will see lower prices throughout the store. Updated signage now clearly designates departments, dietary restrictions or food allergies, highlights organic products and inspires shoppers to explore new tastes. Over 4000 new items in the store! Overall the Cameron Village store is brighter, airy and feels much bigger with the new renovations. You can now do a more complete shop without having to stop other places for pet, household items, etc.

Currently, there are also many great holiday items available in the store. I took a bunch of items home with me to cook, gift and enjoy with holiday guests. There are so many grab and go delicious items for gifting friends, family, teachers, secret santas...anyone on your list! Everything from poinsettias, vintage candy, traditional desserts and cookies, holiday wine, coffee, specialty and hard to get items as well.

The Grand Re-Opening includes some fun events happening tomorrow at the Cameron Village store so stop by and enjoy a whole new shopping experience at The Fresh Market!
