How does a 15,000 sq market serve the needs of Southampton? We already have an undersized market. I don't understand how Fresh Market got involved nor do I understand how the village spot picked a site without notifying the owner. Something is fishy here. Since when is the village in the private development business setting up tenant and landlord?

How Fresh Market got involved is not important. Those of you who have never been to a Fresh Market store do not have the right to speak as to the type of store it is. I do shop at a Fresh Market sited in The Villages area of n/c Florida. FM is similar in style as Schmidts. Since I know Southampton so well I can say that the distance between the two sites should not bother the Schmidts.

Hey Summertime, you have some gall trying to dictate who can comment on what. And for you to say that Fresh Market is like Schmidts is insane. It is nothing like Schmidts. As someone who came from the era when movies were silent, it is a shame you didn't take their cue.

The issue was to help Waldbaum shoppers who are the majority of supermarket shoppers. How does a 10,000 sq ft market help the avg person? How Fresh Market got involved is not important? Makes me very curious what person tipped off Fresh Market and how they are being compensated.

If Fresh Market is very similar to Schimdt's then why do we need it, since we already have Schmidt's?

It's not like people who would shop at the intersection of Hampton Road and Flying Point Road can't make it to Schmidt's because it's so far away.

This would be really funny if it weren't so typical. People claiming that the village needs more than just a Waldbaums, and then proposing we need a Waldbaum's owned market which duplicates the products sold at a market about a mile ...more
