“We are excited to bring the Family Fresh Market® shopping experience to the communities of River Falls, WI and Farmington, MN,” said Tom Swanson, Vice President, Retail Operations. “We designed our Family Fresh Market® format to offer our customers incredibly fresh and high quality products such as produce, meat, seafood, natural and organic in a price competitive format. We believe healthy eating should not be punitive and we strive to offer our customers the offerings they want without the gourmet shop price tag,” continued Swanson.
Some highlights of the two ribbon cutting events for Family Fresh Market® in River Falls and Farmington are: a cash donation to the local community Food Banks; book donations to local schools via Nash Finch’s Feeding Imagination program; live musical entertainment; refreshments; and guest appearances by Lewis the Bookworm and Twins’ mascot TC Bear.
