Special Recipe Cookies

Fresh Ingredients,
Baked From Scratch

The idea for our Special Recipe Cookies came from Darlene Waldfogel in 1998. Darlene was the Bakery Manager at our Wauseon location at the time, and Darlene was passionate about cookies! One day, Darlene took cookie matters into her own hands. Darlene created original recipes for Chocolate Chip, Monster, Peanut Butter and Sugar cookies, and after some research, planning and recipe revisions, the Special Recipe Cookies program was launched in all stores in 1998. Sales soared to over 31 million cookies in the first seven years, and new flavors—including Chocolate Brownie, Maple Walnut, Pumpkin and Snickerdoodle—were developed, each of which have been tremendously successful.

Our Special Recipe Cookies are made with the same ingredients and TLC you use when baking at home: fresh ingredients, mixed by hand, and baked from scratch!

Fresh Market Salads

These Delicious Salads Taste Homemade Because They Are!

Salads, main course salads, fruit salads and more, the iconic salad comes in many shapes, sizes, tastes and textures. Whether you need a classic potato salad for your company picnic or you want to mix your menu up with a main course rotisserie chicken salad, salads just don’t get any better than our Fresh Market Salads.

Each and every one of our Fresh Market Salads is made using only the highest quality ingredients, and never any preservatives. We use our own special recipes, and we prepare each salad from scratch! Anyone and everyone who has tasted our Fresh Market Salads keeps coming back for more! Try them all: Apple Salad, 3-Bean Salad, Vegetable Macaroni Salad, Pasta Salad, Neptune Salad (a Lenten favorite), Classic Potato Salad (our biggest seller), and Rotisserie Chicken Salad (made from our all-natural Rotisserie Big Chicken).
