The Fresh Market, along with dignitaries from the city of Carmel, took part in a bread-breaking ceremony to officially open the company’s newest store in Indiana.

On May 24, The Fresh Market Inc. opened its 160th store, in its already established market area of Carmel, Ind. This marks the specialty grocer’s second location in the Indianapolis suburb and its fifth in the state. 

The store, located at 1392 South Rangeline Road, features a special sensory experience for customers — a center store culinary kitchen called The Square. Customers have a made-to-order station featuring hot soups, customizable burrito bowls and wraps, torta and Cuban sandwiches, and build-your-own fresh salads. An assortment of fresh hot foods include roasted salmon, in-house slow-roasted pulled pork with signature sauce, Yukon gold mashed potatoes, in-house fried chicken, hot sides and much more. According to the company, all items are created with distinct flavors, fresh ingredients and recipes uniquely developed by The Fresh Market.
