GREENSBORO, NC - As more retailers look to catering directly to consumers, The Fresh Market has become the latest chain to offer meal prep solutions with its grab-and-go “Little Big Meal” program.

Available nationwide across the grocer’s 175 stores, the “Little Big Meal” program serves to answer the quintessential “what’s for dinner?” question. According to a press release, the program will offer consumers a different meal each week to solve their dinner needs.
