A few questions about The Fresh Market - long

free sample addict aka Tracy L | Sep 25, 2013 04:34 PM

I could have sworn I posted this before, but I cannot find the post. Allergies have clouded my thought processes. Anyway, TFM just opened up today in my neighborhood. I paid them a visit and so far I am overwhelmed, but from what I sampled and what I saw I will definitely return. I have a few questions.

How are the fish/meat dishes that are semi prepared like the beef wellington, rolled chicken items and fish en croute?

Did the TFM in your area start out carrying a lot (as in an overwhelming array) of different foods and then scale back? Were the prices/sales good at first and then were prices raised after awhile?

How are the okra chips (they look very good)? I love fried okra, but $10 for a container is steep.

How are the cannolis?

So far I sampled and liked the honey roasted peanut butter, fresh squeezed OJ, zucchini bread, edamame cranberry salad and appetizer toast rounds.

The sushi, chicken salad, coffee, chocolate chip cookies were pretty average.

I wanted to sample the pie, but I was fearful I'd eat a whole one for dinner if I liked it. If the pies are good which varieties do you recommend (except for apple)?

Do their floral products have good longevity?

Lastly, what products do you recommend?
