With fewer people eating out and cooking at home more than they ever have (or wanted to), Greensboro, NC based grocer The Fresh Market has quickly become known for their restaurant-quality private brand meals that take the guesswork out of dinnertime.

“While these are unprecedented times, our guests still want to treat themselves to a special meal, whether they are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or even a Saturday night dinner socially distanced with some friends,” said Dan Portnoy, Chief Merchandising Officer for The Fresh Market. “That is why we are launching The Fresh Market’s Ultimate Dinner Meals, which rival the quality of any fine dining restaurant meal. We are kicking it off this week with the Ultimate Steakhouse Dinner Meal featuring our prime grade steaks, premium appetizers, and sides, as well as one of our signature desserts, a gourmet fresh fruit tart.”

The Ultimate Steakhouse Dinner Meal feeds six and retails for $149.99 ($25 a person) and includes:

  • Two USDA Prime First-Cut New York Strip Steaks
  • Two USDA Prime First-Cut Ribeye Steaks
  • Two USDA Prime Chateaubriand-Cut Filet Mignon Steaks
  • Two pounds of ready-to-cook seasoned asparagus
  • Six ready-to-heat loaded twice baked potatoes
  • One Caprese Platter complete with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil
  • One, 9” Signature Gourmet Fruit Tart made fresh in-store with over one pound of fruit

Cooking and heating instructions are included with the meal, as well as suggested wine pairings.

  2. In-Store Pickup: Preorder at TheFreshMarket.com by 2 pm to have your meal ready the next day.
