RICHMOND, Va. -- The Fresh Market has created a special shopping hour for seniors in light of the coronavirus outbreak.

"To best serve our community during this time, we are designating special shopping hours for seniors and other individuals most at risk," a Fresh Market spokesperson said. "These hours are 8 a.m. – 9 a.m., Monday through Friday. All stores will continue to operate under our regular business hours."

Fresh Market also announced the following changes:

  • All in-store food and beverage sampling, including free coffee samples, has been stopped temporarily.
  • In the event we adjust store hours or need to temporarily close a store for additional cleaning or restocking, our emails and social media channels will be the fastest way for you to stay in touch.
  • We continue to be in constant communication with our suppliers and are working diligently with them to mitigate any disruption to our supply chain.
  • We are asking our team members to follow the CDC recommendations on personal hygiene and to be extra vigilant to stay home if they are not feeling well.
