As much as everyone here loves going to grab there meals at Gee or Sandella’s, sometimes you need a break. Or maybe you’re seeking to get out and try something new. Or maybe you’re a kid in college who wishes they could learn to cook. Well that last one’s me. One night my roommate and I were on the way to the Redbox and felt a little grumble in our tummy’s. So, we knew we had to stop somewhere and get some food. Then I remembered by Big Sis used to go to a grocery store down the road called The Fresh Market, so we went and checked it out. When we entered the store it was bliss. There was so many foods to choose from. That night I went with a chocolate croissant and a cinnamon sugar donut. Later, that same week I believe, we went back to treat ourselves to some dinner. The time before some paninis caught my eye and I knew I had to try one.
But wait, there’s more… On our way to the checkout line we also picked up a chocolate pie!
Just in case you were wondering, The Fresh Market is open Mon-Sat from 9-9 and Sun from 11-8. Also, I just found out they have cooking demonstrations and there’s one coming up on the 18th from 11 am- 2 pm- and you don’t need a reservation (just stop by between those times). You’ll learn to make butternut squash, apple, pancetta, and sage tortellini, and shrimp veracruz!
I’ll become way more of a frequent shopper next year when I live in the senior apartments with a kitchen to cook in!
