MOUNT LEBANON (KDKA) – In the grocery business, you have to offer something no one else does.
The Fresh Market in Mount Lebanon says it offers something unseen in Pittsburgh.
“That’s sort of what our concept is too, is to be able to see through the whole store and kind of be individual little markets within that store. You know, a produce market, a meat market, those sort of things,” Manager Randie Alf said.
Based in Greensboro N.C., this is the 134th Fresh Market location in the country with a big concentration in the south.
“I go to the store in Naples, Fla. and it is the absolute best. They have fabulous, the best orange juice, the best fresh squeezed orange juice of anywhere around,” Jill Brodbeck said.
The store offers a blend of an open-air old world Europeans market with a touch of southern hospitality.
“It’s a different atmosphere when you come in here. You know what I mean? There’s plenty of other stores you can go to get what you want, but when you come in here you get what you need,” Assistant Produce Manager Jeff Allison said.
There are organic mangos and there’s also a champagne mango in addition to conventional mangos from Mexico. Jeff said that’s just one of the places you will see lots of variety in the Fresh Market.
And you can’t miss the huge collection of fresh cut flowers and potted plants as you walk through the door.
