I'm so happy that in the age of Costco and Wegmans, a 5-aisle market manages to stock every single thing one might need. And at the same time, the pricing seems very fair. Love the following: salmon salad, rotisserie chickens, grass-fed beef (very reasonably priced), beer and wine selection, great local apple selection, fresh baked ciabatta and baguettes, and amazing...

So the thing about Market Street Market is that it's a market like a real one. And you can do your shopping there. Or you can go and get sandwiches (really good ones) and go and picnic somewhere or carry out and have a lunch. But my favorite thing to do is to get a loaf of their French bread... More

Nice little grocery just off the Main Street pedestrian mall. Good (small) selection of a variety of items. They have organics which was nice. They had organic sliced loaves of bread which is nice and not always easy to find.

Incredible place with great food and great prices plus they have wonderful specials and salads every day. If you like a certain product they will try to get it and stock it for you.

Go with the special, it's usually delicious! In my expert opinion, these sandwiches are better than Take It Away, Eppie's, Littlejohns, Jimmy Johns, and Baggby's. That being said, it doesn't beat the price of Bodo's and is tied with the sandwiches at Food of All Nations. Also, I don't know how it compares with Bellair or Salt Artisan Market as... More

The deli counter has an efficient system for making inexpensive, delicious custom-prepared salads on a bed of greens with a generous central scoop of a chopped salad like egg or chicken salad and an interesting variety of other very fresh ingredients. Such nice people behind the counter and great seating area near the windows!

Anything and everything that you'd ever need, from gourmet cheeses to ice cream toppings. Nice selection of beer & wine. There are some values throughout the store (like the mini sandwiches for $1), but it can be pricey.

It is a disguised treasure trove of delights. Gearharts chocolates, Yum. Order the baguette from the Albemarle Baking Company and top it off with the incomparable Princess Cake. Great fresh fish. Organic Butcher - of course. The Feast - just like it sounds. (Fun samples all the time too.). Orzo-yes. The Hedge completes the list for full-service dinner party shopping.
