THE GOLDEN APPLE was incorporated on April Fool's Day, 1984 - why April Fool's Day - who remembers!!!! Originally it was located in Sherwood Plaza (in what is now Lowe's produce area]. In 1984, it along with Maria's (she was a few years earlier, I must admit) were the only stores of their kind i.e. - specialty food stores such as Dean and DeLuca, Zabar's, and Balducci in New York. Fresh cheeses, coffees, meats and groceries that were nowhere else in the area - the closest competition was in Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Charlotte. No Fresh Market, no Whole Foods, and certainly no recognition by the grocery stores and Trader Joe's was no where to be found!! We moved to Robinhood Plaza in 1997 to expand our space and to provide parking convenience for our customers.

What a change the specialty food market has seen! We have seen it come full circle, from the all-natural and no perseratives in the 70's and 80's back to the same emphasis in the 2000's, but with everyone wanting them and an exploded marketplace.

The Golden Apple started out in that small market and has continued over the past 28 years to provide the same fresh, pure, quality and preservative-free foods that were desired by a few in the 80's but by the masses in the new Century. We have continued to make all of our own salads with the freshest and best quality products available and all preservative-free. Seasonal vegetables and fruits are purchased from our local Farmer's Markets, as well as our local tomatoes during the summer. We are passionate about food in our Deli, Cafe', Catering and in our choice of packaged food products. There is no substitute for quality!!

To compete in this new Marketplace, we will continue to serve the highest of quality and freshness in our cafe', deli and catering and expand our kitchenware and gift departments. Gift baskets and any special needs will always be available.
