Fire up the grill. We’ll handle the rest.
Whether you’re hosting a neighborhood cookout or bringing your own entrée to a friend’s gathering, our prepped meat, seafood and veggies are ready to be tossed on the grill and cooked to perfection.
We’ve done the work for you, slicing, dicing, skewering and seasoning every bite. Choose from skewers loaded with marinated meat and vegetables, to seasoned beef, chicken and fish, to fresh, colorful vegetables and ready-to-serve sides. All you have to do is heat up the grates, kick back and relax in true cookout-season fashion.
Meat Skewers and Kabobs
Here are a few reasons why you’ll love our skewers and kabobs: They’re filled with the perfect balance of fresh ingredients from our stores, they’re super easy to cook and they’re varied enough to please everyone at your backyard soiree.
If you really want to step up your skewer game, try our new Ultimate Skewers. They feature high-grade metal skewers you can use again and again. (We know you will. It is grilling season, after all.)
Our Ultimate Skewers deliver—flavor, quality and practicality. They’re long, sturdy, reusable cookout essentials. Not to mention they’re loaded with delicious ingredients you and your cookout companions will love.
Steak-lovers, try our new Ultimate Steak Asada Skewer or Ultimate Bourbon Steak Skewer. Both include marinated sirloin steak and vegetables.
We also have new ultimate skewers such as General Tso Chicken and Broccoli and Honey Sriracha Chicken, as well as Ultimate Hot & Sweet Italian Sausage Skewers made with our hot and sweet Italian sausages, fresh peppers and onions.
Seafood Skewers and Kabobs
Our Seafood Skewers and Kabobs are perfect for summer cookouts. They cook quickly, so your guests won’t have to stay hungry for long. Choose between jumbo-sized shrimp, bacon-wrapped scallops, sashimi-grade tuna and tender swordfish steaks.
Mix surf and turf flavors with our Bacon Wrapped Scallop Skewers. Savory bacon pairs perfectly with our tender, succulent scallops. Toss them on the grill until they're deeply browned with a crispy crust and delicate center.
We also have a range of new reusable Ultimate Skewers. Two recipes include our new jumbo Easy Grill Shrimp. Choose between Italian herb seasoning or a punchy, citrusy blend of spices.
If you're in the mood for fresh fish, try our Mango Chipotle Tuna. We've layered the skewer with perfect portions tuna, zucchini, squash, bell pepper and onion seasoned with our signature Mango Chipotle Rub. Or, opt for Swordfish Steak seasoned with The Fresh Market Signature Rub.
Grill-Ready Meat and Seafood
We make our seasoned and marinated meat and seafood in-house with top-notch, flavorful ingredients. From hand-trimmed chicken breasts to skirt steak, pork chops, salmon and sole, there’s something for every surf and turf fan.
If you’re looking for a foolproof way to grill fish fillets, try our cedar seafood planks. They create a stable surface for your fish and also add a delicious, smoky flavor to the finished fillet.
Our marinated chicken is made with antibiotic-free, hand-trimmed chicken breasts from chickens fed a 100% vegetarian diet. Flavors include Garlic Parmesan, Sesame Glazed, Sweet Chili and Bourbon. We also have Marinated Skirt Steak and Glazed Pork Chops. For seafood, try our Bourbon and Sesame Glazed Salmon fillets or Garlic Turbot.
When you’re perusing our seasoned and marinated meat and seafood, don’t miss our new offering: Citrus Mojo Rubbed Half Chicken, rubbed in delicious seasoning and ready to grill. We’ve left the bones intact for extra flavor.
Pick Your Plank
If you’re looking for an entrée that’s equal parts easy and delicious, our planks (or wraps) are always a solid choice. They’re quick to cook and rich in flavor.
Our planks are stacked with larger portions of shrimp and fish, in case you want to share—or keep more for yourself. We also offer single-serving planks, complete with a fresh protein and side.
We’ve taken our fresh, seasoned seafood and nestled it on cedar planks and wraps. Once you place these on the grill, the seafood steam-cooks, retaining its moisture. It also picks up smoky, aromatic, woodsy flavors from the cedar.
Our single-serving planks include a protein and side. Choose between marinated Salmon and Asparagus and Mediterranean Salmon with Brussels Sprouts. Both the salmon and the vegetables are seasoned and ready to cook. Our cedar wrapped seafood includes Teriyaki Salmon, Seasoned Mahi and Korean BBQ Swordfish.
We also have planks with larger portions of protein and no sides. These include a Blackened Shrimp Plank (4-6 shrimp per pound, so they’re hefty “shrimp”!) with Cajun seasoning, a Rustic Italian Swordfish Plank and Rustic Italian Trout Plank rubbed in classic Italian seasoning, a Sesame Garlic Tuna Plank featuring Sashimi-grade tuna rolled in black sesame seeds and garlic, and a Maple Bacon Trout Plank starring tender, farm-raised trout.
Colossal Grilling Shrimp
Our Colossal Grilling Shrimp are extra large in size, coming in at 4-6 shrimp per pound, and equally big on flavor. You can skewer, plank or simply place them on the grill without extra support to keep them on the grate.
They’re available solo, ready to be marinated and grilled, or pre-seasoned and planked. Grill them in-shell to protect the meat and preserve the flavor - they’re already prepped for easy peeling when it’s time to eat!
Ready for Veggies
Our made-in-store vegetable entrées are perfect for adding vegetarian-friendly variety to your cookout. Add some veggie kabobs to your spread, or opt for a Vegetable Grilling Kit complete with pre-cut, fresh vegetables and savory grilling sauce. We also have a simply-seasoned Grilling Squash Medley that’s versatile enough to go with just about anything.
Tropical and Veggie Kabobs
Can’t get enough kabobs? We make our Tropical and Veggie Kabobs in-store—Tropical Kabobs are lined with pineapple, red onion, red bell peppers, white mushrooms, while our Veggie Kabobs feature perfectly-sliced Portobello mushrooms, red peppers, onions, zucchini and squash.
Our Vegetable Grilling Kit is also made in store with cut bell peppers, sliced Portobello mushroom, red onion, summer squash and asparagus, along with teriyaki grilling sauce. Serve these grilled veggies as an entrée paired with cookout-friendly sides, or as a flavorful accompaniment to our meat and seafood.
