REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - The Fresh Market opened its doors Wednesday morning to long lines and a big crowd.

This is the 176th location nationwide and first in Delaware of the higher-end, specialty grocery store.

According to Fresh Market representatives, they hired 86 people to staff the store.

People lined outside and filled the parking lot before the 8 a.m. opening. Throughout the day there was a grand opening ceremony, free food samples and chef demonstrations.

Eileen Hagarty was one of the first to show up and said she has been looking forward to the new addition in town.

"I think as the area grows and continues to grow, people are in search of those things and it's it's not really available down here," she said.

The store is on Route One at the intersection of Country Club Road. A Wawa and Bed, Bath and Beyond are also opening up in the same shopping center.
