The Fresh Market took the top honor again this year, according to USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. The chain — which has 159 locations in 22 states — was among the supermarkets that shoppers chose during a 28-day popular vote hosted by the 10Best website.

In a press release celebrating its first-place finish, The Fresh Market says:

“The Fresh Market is a destination for guests to discover convenient, restaurant quality meals, premium baked goods, fresh cut flowers, fresh seasonal produce, unique ingredients from around the globe and the finest meat and seafood in their town.”
