Virginia Beach, Va. – The Fresh Market will open its Pembroke Mall store on Wednesday.

The Pembroke Mall location is the 15th Fresh Market store in Virginia and features over 27,000 square feet of culinary delights.

The store’s bakery produces 30 freshly baked breads and 14 different kinds of pie and the store’s full-service meat counter has a wide selection of ready-to-serve entrées, fresh seafood and more than 200 imported and domestic cheeses.

The store brings approximately 90 new jobs to the area, most of which are being fulfilled locally.

This is The Fresh Market’s second store in Virginia Beach and the fifth in the Hampton Roads area.

“We are excited to open our new store in Virginia Beach and to expand our reach in Virginia,” said Rick Anicetti, the company’s chief executive officer. “We look forward to introducing The Fresh Market’s concept of quality, great tasting food, excellent customer service and a distinctive atmosphere to an expanded customer base, and we look forward to offering neighboring communities an inspiring new food shopping experience.”

Doors will open at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 30 and there will be several grand opening activities including chef demonstrations, food sampling and drawings for gift cards to the The Fresh Market.

The first 1,000 customers will receive a sample-sized bag of the company’s gourmet coffee and a reusable shopping bag.
