Two sandwiches, a salad, two drinks, cheese, crackers, and a brownie for $30. The sandwiches (smoke salmon and a turkey thanksgiving sandwich) were great and hearty. Great bread. Would recommend of you're looking for something to go.

Throughout the year Market Basket provides us with consistently good sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, a great selection of goodies to buy from hard to find English Marmite to great wines. It is a perfect place to get some quality takeout food if you don't feel like cooking dinner. We had roasted guinea hens and a rice salad for dinner... More

This is a great place to pick up delicious bread, baked goods, sandwiches and some gourmet items. I spent a good deal of money our first night in Rockport on their chicken fingers, haddock cakes, shrimp cakes, pasta, and bread. Expensive but delicious!

I stop here on occasion for lunch. They make great Thanksgiving sandwich! Everything has that fresh baked and local flavor. A nice wine selection as well. I'll continue to stop here because they are always consistent.

Every bit of their food is out of this world. There selection of fresh and frozen food is so beautifully constructed. Their prices are very reasonable for what you are getting. I am never disappointed in the..........food. However, I would say that 80% of the staff never cracks a smile. I feel like there is something going on where people... More

What a place! Their sign says "fine food and wine". Oddly that's what it is but in a eclectic self-serve fast-food shop. This place can be crowded but the MINOR wait is worth it. Some have complained about the cashier but big deal, it's excellent food and sometimes barely slower than a typical McD's (: Don't let those reviews scare... More

I go there pretty often, the food is great and they have some really yummy treats but honestly the owner should put a little more effort in to training their stuff properly, im talking about common sense costumer service. There is a line of 7 people waiting to pay and only one register open while three other employees are chatting... More

The Market Basket is a must stop for lots of tasty reasons. The list of goodies here is endless, but lets start with the great iced coffee, or the cinnamon donut muffins, or the thanksgiving sandwich or any of the great cookies, death by chocolate, or the peanut butter balls and don`t forget the delicious breads and bread sticks. You... More

Coffee is great. Muffins and breakfast pastries are delicious. We indulge quite often. Sandwiches are filling. We like the Roast Beef with Boursin cheese. Plan a meal with half-off selections in the freezer in the back.
