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 don't like working there. It's a lot of sighs and hand on the hip in you take more then 10 seconds to order or ask most than one questions. Hmmmm. When I read other reviews on this and Yelp. I saw I wasn't the only one. Come on folks you have a great place and we think your tops. Where 's the love?

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 you - go in with just a little patience and be rewarded - why would you pay 5x more to sit down at a full-serve restaurant and waste at least an hour in the process - when you can get sandwiches here and go to the town Harbor, up Mt Battie, or stroll a beach, or the limitless other places you could enjoy this food at.
Insane food! Neat sandwiches, great soup, wonderful deserts! They will custom make sandwiches for you or you can select from pre-made ones in the refrigerated section at the left end of the store. There's lots of deserts and bread available for self-serve and it's all excellent!
There's an upstairs room that is much quieter and away from the crowd in the store - take your food upstairs to eat.
They also have a large bottled wine selection (But you can NOT drink it on the premise)

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 in the back re stocking the drinks. Also they are never friendly...
It would be an excellent place if they would make the service better.

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 get the idea, if you are on a diet don`t stop, but other than that reason, the Market Basket is the best place in the area if you want to spoil yourself.
