The Fresh Market, a Contemporary Grocery Store for Adults

There is magical sensation of going inside The Fresh Market; it's difficult to describe within a few words, but the best ones that come to my head are - the beautiful sound of silence - the store is quite chic and upscale, and it gives the sensation you are in a boutique supermarket some place in the Mediterranean European Union.

There is some elegance in walking around the aisles, where you can find some items common in every store as the Dixie Sugars, but as well some gourmet items that are not common in regular supermarkets.

The beauty of the "sound of silence," as there were no children inside the store created a magical experience, while I was traveling around the aisles; as many supermarket I can see parents bringing their children around, but there are certain stores where there aren't aimed for a family experience instead of a more intimate experience for couple or single individuals.

The aisles were neatly decorated, where you could see some elegance of the "Old World", where each section expose in a delicate matter their products to the customers, as well there is an old style charcuterie that act as a central hub for the entire supermarket. 

In-store prices aren't bad for gourmet - organic items; they are much similar to Trader Joe's; I bought 11 items, not counting any produce and I spent US$23.74 for my trip; the only reason I opted not to buy any produce it was as I found their prices high opposite to the ones at Publix, which their selection is essentially the same and the prices are lower.

One neat aspect, at least here in Florida; is that TFM has an online store and can deliver to the customers door; there are some savings found there when you buy by bulk which for the people who have no reliable transportation buying through them is a viable option.

I would recommend any of my friends to go to these supermarket chains for a nice different experience, where they could enjoy a nice relaxing inviting shopping environment.
