Fresh Market Offering ‘Senior Shopping Hours’ to Combat COVID-19

Seniors and immunocompromised people can now shop for groceries with heightened caution at The Fresh Market.

From 8-9 a.m. each day at all of the locations, including the one in Vienna (150 Branch Road SE), people who are elderly or have immune system issues are invited to shop at the store, according to store manager Doug Dundall.

Though they are not “policing ” this policy, the store’s management asks that people who are young and healthy to shop at other times.

When it comes to cleanliness, Dundall noted that the company has instituted heightened measures.

“We have strict cleaning policies at the store to go the extra mile,” he said.

For shoppers who don’t want to go out at all, there are several companies, like Whole Foods, that deliver groceries.
