~Fresh Market~



Good Morning to everyone! Hope everyone is doing great! We expect to hear some news about ITT on Monday....I will keep you posted on the outcome. I really appreciate every ones prayers and advise. You girls are the best!!!!


Here in Knoxville, we have a small market, called The Fresh Market, we actually have 2 of them. Girls, this is the place you go to buy the best of the best!!! It's like going into what grocery stores use to be back when I was a kid. They have absolutely, hands down the best steaks you can buy, my husband is spoiled to this place,(he's a steak person). This store has an unbelievable bakery, I gain a couple pounds just walking by the display lol:) They sell brands that you can't get in a regular store, however some things are a little pricier, but worth it!! We don't go every week to The Fresh Market, we go every couple of weeks. It's such a treat to go! Let me tell you, they have the best coffee I have ever had!!!! When you first go in, the coffee station is one of the first stops, they will even give you a small cup of coffee, they know, one taste and your hooked. After you pass the coffee, your at the flowers and produce, on to the bakery, deli, cheeses, then meats. Oh, the meat dept, has several meat butchers that help you, you tell them what you want or show them which steak and they wrap it up for you...just like the good old days lol:) The last time we went, I happen to have my camera with me, (I'm getting use to carrying that camera everywhere) :) the only bad thing was the battery was dieing, so I was limited to how many pictures I could take. The next time I go, I will take more pictures. Hope you all enjoy The Fresh Market Tour. Nancy


P.S. Please forgive me, any time you see a blurry picture, its because, I have carpal tunnel and tendinitis in both hands and wrists, I just can't keep a steady hand.

~Girls, grab you a cup of coffee and enjoy the tour~

I am so sorry these flower pics are blurry!!!



~What a beautiful Tomatoes~


On the top of the shelves, all around the Market, they have all these kinds of old time items for display.

I saved the best for last! These cakes, pies, and pastry, Goodness, I am in Heaven when I go to this area of the store! Hope you enjoyed the tour, I will post more of The Fresh Market later. Hope every one has a great weekend!!!! Nancy

Your pictures didn't seem blurry to me...maybe it's because I don't half see anymore! LOL

Loved the picture of the fresh flowers the best.

We are lucky enough to have several Fresh Markets in our area and they are hands down the best grocery store ever. Don't you love their produce? I can't help but buy flowers when I go there too.

This looks like my kind of market!

I understand about the carpal tunnel syndrome. J has had surgery in both hands for carpal tunnel. Several linemen he worked with has the same thing, but they told him it isn't work related...makes me wonder!

Have a great week.
