Talley Market Expands to Better Suit Students
Over the last few years, Talley Market has transitioned from being a simple convenience store stocked with snacks and ice cream into the bigger, more holistic market that it is now. Through this expansion, Talley Market has grown significantly and become a staple dining location and continues to be updated and improved regularly, to meet the needs and preferences of students and staff.
One of the most notable changes with the recent expansion has been increased Grab & Go options, providing a wide variety of balanced meals available that accommodate different dietary needs and preferences. Sushi continues to be made in Talley daily and is one of the most popular options in the market, for students and staff alike. The Grab & Go cases also feature a variety of salads, sandwiches, wraps, balanced snack trays, and more specialized meals, such as various pasta dishes. Except for sushi, the other Grab & Go options are outsourced to three local companies: Saladelia, Fresh Point, and York Street.
At the far right counter, students can now also purchase Dole Soft Serve. These popular frozen fruit treats are new to Talley Market and make a great, healthy alternative to ice cream, especially for those who have dietary restrictions. Dole Soft Serves are gluten-free, dairy-free, kosher, halal, and vegan. The original pineapple and strawberry flavors are available, in addition to a swirl between the two.
Talley Market has also recently established a new partnership with Raleigh-local Manhattan Bakery, to bring a variety of freshly baked goods and pastries to students and staff. Included in the bakery case are a variety of cookies, breakfast loaves, bundt cakes, cheesecakes, lemon bars, brownies, and more that are made fresh and shipped to the market daily. Manhattan Bakery also fulfilled orders for Talley Market’s yearly Valentine’s Day special.
Finally, as part of NC State’s long-term partnership with Coca-Cola, they have added a new wrap around the drinks case in the back of the market to add more color to the store.
