Renee and Staff,
Thank you so much for all your hard towards Grayson and Stephen's wedding dinner and cocktail hour. It takes a true professional to make things seem effortless- especially since the rain changed our plan for cocktail hour! The food was delicious and the service exceptional. We will certainly recommend you for anyone in our area who needs catering in the Wilmington area. Also, I think we may make PVM a regular lunch destination when we are in town! Thanks Again - Tara

"Thank you for all you did to make our wedding so great. The food was wonderful and your staff was fantastic. They took such good care of John and I all night. Neither of us ever had to ask for a thing! We hope you had a wonderful new year! Best, Meghan & John"
I am not sure where to start! The food was just amazing! I heard from more than one guest that it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. Your attention to detail and your efficiency were second to none. Thank you for making sure that Matt and I had a moment to eat and just be together before the festivities began. I am not sure if we would have made it through the night without eating. From the first time mom and I sat down you, you understood our vision and that showed in every detail. You made the night so simple for mom and I, thank you for that. It was a magical night for Matt and I, thank you for all that you did to make it happen!
Sincerely, Matt & Carriedelle"
"Dear Christi and PVM Crew
Thank you so very much for catering our rehearsal dinner and wedding. Our guests loved the food (especially the grits!) and we're so thrilled we got to work with you in the months leading up to our wedding.We always knew you had it covered, and peace of mind is a priceless experience during wedding planning. We wish you all and your staff continued success and look forward to stopping into the market on our next visit to Wilmington!!
Fondly, Kim & Ron"
"We sincerely appreciate all the time and effort you put into our special day. Your incredible food, professionalism, and service were highlights of our evening. Thank you for everything! All the best, Elizabeth & Timothy"
The change I am most excited about right now is the evolution of our retail department,” Christi said. “I have been scouring the state and region for small producers of gourmet products. We have new merchandise coming in weekly that is all locally and regionally produced, which means when a customer supports us as a local business, the impact that their dollar will make on the local economy is even greater. Right now, it’s all about supporting anything local—no matter what it is.
Thank you Wilmington for voting us Best Gourmet Store, Butcher and Catering!
Best Best Gourmet Store and Butcher Shop
Everyone knows about Pine Valley Market. Why? Because Kathy Webb and Christi Ferretti are the brains behind it, and they do quite an outstanding job at making sure their name is out in the community at all times. From catering corporate, local and private functions, to offering the most outstanding on-the-go meals, as well as providing a full gourmet shop with wine and food offerings galore, these two have something that makes a business succeed: consistency. Kathy and Christi "blend [their] knowledge on sales, food and wine." What you'll hear about the market is how delightfully pleasant they always are to every customer who walks through their doors. "Service is the key to success in a small town," shares Kathy. "We do our best to know our customers by name." They go the extra mile to really make their gourmet and butcher shop a true neighborhood environment, so when you walk in, you feel like you're visiting your family. Celebrating their second year anniversary, Wilmington is in luck to have PVM in reach of their cravings and gourmet needs.
Best Gourmet Store, Catering Service and Butcher
Wow! Taking this many wins is almost illegal by encore standards (one business is only allowed to win three). We have a strong suspicion that if one business could win every category, then Pine Valley Market would surely be sweeping out a few of them (from appetizers to barbecue, to wine and beer store and, hell, probably even antiques). Sometimes it's just hard being the best, what can they say? Regardless, they secured their win in three categories because they know how to 1) cater to a customer's needs, 2) make sure their products are of the highest quality and 3) keep their name synonymous with excellence at all times. From the best cut of USDA beef in the area, to all side dishes that compliment it, to helping you throw the best function in Wilmington, Pine Valley Market is quite close to sheer brilliance, just as its category wins suggest.
Thank you, thank you for a most memorable evening and meal!! There are not enough words to describe my happy memories.... To pick a favorite course would be a kin to selecting a favorite child. Simply cannot be done....you left my kitchen cleaner than you found it!!.....
