Quick Brunch Picks
Spend more time hiding eggs, and less time cracking them. These prep-free breakfast confections make spring mornings even sweeter. Treat your family to everything from our traditional hot cross buns to a fresh cup of coffee.
1Hot Cross Buns
These Easter treats are made with a spice-infused, yeasted dough, aromatic citrus and plump raisins. Traditionally enjoyed on Good Friday, they’re a tasty anytime treat for spring.
2Lemon Poppy Seed Mini Muffins
Complement your coffee with deliciously moist, cake-like muffins featuring bright lemon zest and a buttery streusel topping. They’re the perfect mini size!
3The Fresh Market Carrot Cake Biscotti
Crafted in the Milanese tradition, our biscotti have a uniquely soft texture. Real carrot, pineapple, golden raisins and a hint of cinnamon create the perfect carrot cake flavor, delicious with coffee and tea.
4The Fresh Market Spring Coffee
Available for a limited time, these seasonal blends make spring mornings even sweeter. Try new Vanilla French Toast, Wild Blueberry Pie, Carrot Spice Cake and our classic Spring Blend.
5The Fresh Market Hollandaise Sauce
This rich, velvety lemon-butter sauce is perfect for eggs Benedict, roasted vegetables and more. It tastes homemade and saves you time in the kitchen, too.
More Easy Easter Morning Inspiration
It's always preferable to have a couple of drink options to suit your mood. Fresh-squeezed orange juice is, of course, a brunch essential (sparkling wine optional). We also love À Propos Côtes de Provence Rosé. This classic, medium-bodied dry rosé has hints of raspberry and a zesty mineral finish.
If you’re looking for a savory, satisfying recipe, our Bacon Wrapped White Asparagus with Egg is always a crowd-pleaser. It’s easy to make—simply wrap white asparagus stalks in 24-hour-smoked applewood bacon and top with eggs. This recipe pairs beautiful with fresh, sweet berries.
Did you know: White asparagus is grown underground to prevent exposure to sunlight. No light means no chlorophyll, the pigment that turns the stalks green.
Need another drink option? Enjoy The Fresh Market Freshly Squeezed Juice with J Vineyards Cuvée 20 Brut. Try tangerine juice with one of our favorite versatile sparklers—a fruity, delicate, creamy Brut with a lively finish.
Finally, don’t forget flowers! We offer a wide selection of potted and fresh-cut spring flowers, from hydrangeas and orchids to fresh-cut tulips.
