FRESH and Festive: What’s cooking at FRESH

Have you been to FRESH today? It’s our goal to see you as often as we can – not just for your weekly grocery shopping, but to enjoy some of our special meals, great deals, and free workshops, music and cooking demos.

Over the past few months, we’ve introduced several new weekly events, in addition to the frequent product samplings, cooking demos, holidays and festival events that we host. You don’t have to come every day to join the fun – but if you wanted to, you could!

Mondays (5-7 p.m.): Seafood Nights with Chef John Peters. Our talented seafood manager, who once cooked at New Orleans’ Commanders Palace and other fine restaurants, will personally cook your dinner to order! Choose from a selection of fresh seafood, shop or enjoy a beverage while the chef cooks it up, then eat with us or take home to enjoy.

Tuesdays (10-11 a.m.): Coffee Talk with Freshologist, Jane. You can’t help but catch Jane’s enthusiasm about her favorite products, exciting recipes, and new cooking techniques. She often brings in a guest from our talented team of experts. Pour a (free) cup of coffee and join the talk!

Wednesdays (5-7 p.m.): Happy Hour with food and drink specials. You never know what we’ll offer here; recent specials have included Frito pies, nachos, quesadillas and BBQ sliders – always washed down with a choice beverage like Shiner Bock. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll get for ridiculously low prices!

Thursdays (5-7 p.m.): Market Manager, Herb Turner, cooks for you. Herb will cook up the perfect cut of meat just for you, complete with savory sides. You can take home or enjoy here with us!

Fridays (6-7:45 p.m.): Front Row Eats Cooking Showcases! Launched just last week, this new series will feature our chefs, bakers and other culinary experts, doing what they do best – demonstrating how to use our fantastic ingredients in new ways. The demos are free, but because of limited seating, we ask that you reserve your spot by calling 903-747-3512.Tonight’s topic is fresh and healthy dinner options, with seasonal veggies, whole grains and lean meats. Next week, it’s super snacks for Super Bowl Sunday.

Fridays and Saturdays (times vary): Music Showcases: Our popular free summer music series is back, this time in the warmth of the store. Come catch old favorites and rising stars, like Daniel de la Rocha (4-7 today) and Neal Katz (3-6 Saturday, Jan 28).

Saturdays and Sundays (9 a.m. – 1 p.m.): Pancake Breakfast: Get your pancakes – all you can eat! We started these pancake breakfasts right around the holidays, and they’re a great way to ease into your weekend mornings. All you can eat, including all the mix-ins and toppings you can imagine, just $6.99 for adults, and $4.99 for kids 12 and under.
