Up in this area some more natural supermarket chains are "Whole Foods" and then there's "Wegmans." I see on the Greensboro map there is something called "Fresh Market." Does anyone know anything about it? If you've ever been to a Whole Foods or a Wegmans (or even a Trader Joe's), is it anything like that? Is it largely overpriced? I love fresh bread and exotic cheeses, as I'm an amateur gourmet aficionado....! yum! I LOVE FOOD.

Default Fresh Market

Fresh Market is more like a European type market. The seafood, meats, etc seem to be much fresher than the chain stores. There is a sushi bar, bakery with fresh breads, pastries, etc. They seem to have a wider selection of produce, especially more exotic fruits. There is a good assortment of prepared foods catering to the gourmet shopper. The Fresh Markets I have visited seem to be a bit smaller than the larger chains.

There's a small sushi bar inside? Score! Bakeries for bread are really important. I certainly don't mind small. Wegmans, for all it's magical selection, is really too big for me. I just become immobilized in that size of a grocery store.

Does Fresh Market have a good deli section, you think?

There is a Trader Joe's in Charlotte too. I personally just go to Whole Foods rather than Fresh Market. Fresh Market is nice, I just find more at Whole Foods. I have actually driven to Charlotte and Cary for Trader Joe's and stock up.

How could I have forgotten that. Yea, here in DE we have Trader Joes, and Whole Foods right over in PA (wish there was like 5 more). Both of them are costly here but I will make exceptions for alot of Whole Foods items that I probably wouldn't in Trader Joes, suprisingly I get alot of bang for the buck at Whole Foods--not to mention way more than the four bags worth I get at ACME for nearly 60-70 bucks, how the heck. Im curious to see your answers.

Yeah, Whole Foods has a wonderful choice variety of breakfast granolas/muesli that you can bag up as much as you like, or as little. I did just check the Fresh Market website and they seem to have this option too! I'm totally stoked!!

Earth Fare, which is located on Battleground Ave in Greensboro, is very similar to Whole Foods with natural, organic, & conventional foods along with fresh baked items.

Default I remember Wegmans

I used to live in Buffalo...I remember Wegmans (I just remember..I used to work at Wegman's lol)....Whole Foods is more specialized and much more expensive. I miss the good breads up north....you just don't get that good stuff down here in Winston-Salem.
