(REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.)- Delaware officially welcomed its first "The Fresh Market" store in Rehoboth Beach on Wednesday, June 8.

Store Manager Ricky Sprinkle tells WRDE many folks were already lined up outside at 8 a.m., eager to see inside the new store.

"We're excited to be here in the community. The community has been very accepting of us," said Sprinkle. "We're ready, we're ready for the market!"

Instead of the traditional ribbon-cutting, the store kicked off its grand opening festivities by cutting into an 83 lb. wheel of Parmesan.

The Fresh Market offers a variety of specialty items, including meats, seafood, produce, coffee, and baked goods.

With the opening of the Rehoboth Beach store, the specialty grocer now operates 176 stores in 24 states. In addition to a variety of specialty items, Sprinkle says the new store brought 86 new jobs to Rehoboth Beach.
