The Main Event
Build the holiday meal around a show-stopping main course! A yuletide favorite, standing rib roast makes for a great centerpiece. The Fresh Market carries USDA prime and premium choice beef, which accounts for the highest-quality beef in the country. Standing rib roast is tender, juicy, and available for pre-order.
Create a truly memorable meal with seasoned or unseasoned French cut rack of lamb. Free-range, antibiotic, and hormone-free, and fed a 100 percent vegetable diet, The Fresh Market rack of lamb makes for a culinary masterpiece. Spiral-sliced honey ham is another seasonal favorite—doubled-glazed with honey and brown sugar and smoked over hickory hardwood for sweet and savory flavor. Order ahead to ensure these popular dishes make it on the table this holiday season!
An extraordinary entrée, easy-to-cook, premium choice or USDA prime beef tenderloin is a delicious way to impress a hungry crowd without spending hours in the kitchen. Experienced butchers at The Fresh Market are ready to trim and tie the whole tenderloin, or slice it into filet mignon steaks according to guests’ preferences.
