The Scoop: The Fresh Market grocery opens in Creve Coeur



The Fresh Market, a North Carolina-based grocery store chain, opened its first Missouri location at 11557 Olive Blvd. in Creve Coeur on Feb. 25. “We’re always on the lookout for where shoppers have a passion for great food and great service,” said Fresh Market district manager Amy Donati. “This area is very convenient for a lot of different people.”

The 25,000-square-foot building is designed in the style of an open-air European market and is stocked with fresh produce, seafood, deli meats, baked goods, freshly ground coffee, wine and beer. Local offerings include Billy Goat Chips, Fitz’s sodas, Two Men and A Garden salsa and pickles, Stone Hill wines and Kuva Coffee. In addition to grocery needs, The Fresh Market also offers a small six-seat dining area inside and another 24 seats on a patio where customers can enjoy the store’s prepared food offerings. Grab-and-go options include salads, paninis, wraps, sushi and an assortment of health-conscious meals.

The Fresh Market is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
