When I think of Fosters I think of the best mac and cheese ever! My father in law HAS to go to Fosters when he comes to North Carolina to visit. We always have to get a pound of the mac and cheese to share at the table in addition to the awesome entrees that we order.

Fosters' is one of those markets that makes it easy to be healthy. The selection is great and produce is very fresh. the only drawback is that I can never walk into that place and just get the "one thing" I want to buy!

Foster's is an excellent place to find a low price, healthy lunch or dinner. The food is wholesome and often organic. The selection of old fashion candies is fun to sort through.

This eatery is a wonderful place to go anytime, but be sure that you have some time to spare. The atmosphere is very relaxing and comfortable. You have a choice of eating there inside or outside. I had gone there with a friend before and was impressed; so when I moved to a new complex and a neighbor had brought me a 'welcome to the neighborhood basket' I was pleased, but as I looked and saw that it was from Foster's, I really felt welcomed to the community.

I know Fosters Market food anywhere! Their food is fresh & healthy. They make the best cookies and pies. They are out of this world GOOD! Once you have Foster's Desserts, you become addicted. When I say fresh, I don't mean out of the box fresh, I mean made fresh daily. Once it's the end of the day, they donate their goods to local organizations or shelters.

A NEAT AND LOCAL HANG OUT FOSTERS IS DUHAM'S BEST KEPT SECRET. SARAH FOSTER WAS
MARTHA STEWARTS CATERER, THAT'S SOME PRETTY STIFF COMPITTION. YOU'LL FIND AN ARRAY
OF SANDWICHS, SOUPS, AND SUCH. ALSO, NOT TO BE MISSED IS THEIR 3 PEPPER JELLY.
I LOVE ALL OF THE WINES, AND THE ESPRESSO BAR. GO CHECK IT OUT. IT 'S VERY UNIQUE FOR
THE TRIANGLE. I THINK FOSTER'S SUCCESS IS RESPONSABLE FOR THE TRENDY GOURMAT CAFE BOOM THAT HAPPENED HERE ABOUT 7 YEARS AGO.

we went for lunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and it was a great experience. They took our order right away, we found a table right away (there were 3 people in the group), our food came out right away, and everything tasted great! I've also had a lunch box from here for a school event and it was much better than the average deli sandwich. Major props for the roasted potato salad and the big Foster's Market cookie. It's the place I'll take all visitors from now on.

Fosters Market is my favorite place in Durham...I moved here about a month ago and have been there a dozen times already. It was recommended to me by friends who went to Duke undergrad, so it was THE cafe from 1998-2001. Judging from the bad (but old) reviews on this site, it apparently went downhill in 2002-03, but maybe the owners read this site, because it's awesome again. I brought my visiting family members (7 people) to Foster's yesterday, and everyone raved about the food so much they suggested we go there for breakfast again today. I also sit there and study for HOURS and they never, ever bother you, even when you go back to refill your bottomless cup of coffee 17 times. It has a FANTASTIC student atmosphere (note to students: bring your iPod, because the place is also family-friendly), and it sure beats the Duke law library, which doesn't have a tasty selection of baked goods. Mmm.

Pros: Great for studying (students tend to sit at the big table in the back), good coffee/food.

Cons: It's a little expensive for a student budget (~$7 for a sandwich/wrap), but worth it.

I have been eating at fosters for the past year, upon moving to raleigh. I have to say the desserts are the best i have had in the triangle. Lunch and dinner is either very good or unseasoned. i would love to see a fosters open in downtown raleigh, the area is dying for it. Don't miss the coconut cake, chocolate peanut butter bars or the chocolate whoppers.

This was the worst dining experience I have had so far in the Triangle. Several people have mentioned this place to me as a good place to take the kids, but I can't imagine why. The only item offered as a kids' item was a grilled cheese sandwich that tasted like cardboard. The macaroni and cheese sold by the pound was dramatically overspiced and gooey. Neither of my children would eat, and they are NOT picky eaters! My Thai Chicken wrap was mostly lettuce with barely any dressingand it fell completely apart when I tried to eat it. My single beer came out of the cooler WARM. NO ambience at all - a bunch of rundown tables and chairs scattered around with no sense of order - a general state of disarray. At least I have one place that I can cross OFF my list of places to go!

Pros: ample parking

I have not had an enjoyable meal at foster's in the past four years. The food is not longer interesting or as fresh/tasty as it used to be, and the service and prices are just as bad as ever. I think that I am done with trying to catch them on a "good day".

If you are looking for some home cooked Southern food with a twist, Foster's Market is the place to go. Daily specials are one of a kind, fresh, & tasty. Sandwiches are big enough to share & all topped with fresh ingredients. Do not miss out on the Triangle's very best desserts either!

I live close by so I find myself here fairly frequently. The food is good, yet never as good as the menu promises - all the ingredients are there. Of particular disappointment is the breakfast burrito, which is easy to make but often comes out dry. Perhaps the owners are attempting to stay health conscious by omitting cheese and sour cream. For shame! Maybe they should try using more of those expensive specialty goods they sell. Still, it's a good spot to sit outside and have a snack. Friendly staff.

this restaurant is living on a reputation that should have died when it lost the majority of its talented kitchen staff a number of years ago... staff now is rude and slow, the food is average on a good day, the prices are ridiculous, and the seating is terrible. I suppose it would be a good hang out for students wanting just coffee and a place to study but if you want to eat good food in a pleasant atmosphere it is not worth your time.

Seating is crazy, but worth it. The Cobb Sandwich is really good. Lemon pound cake to take home is a must! And the New York style crumb cake is a good choice too!

The last time I was lunching at Foster's with my mother, I said, "If I ever suggest this again, remind me how much it annoys me." The food is ok, not outstanding, but it's fine; but the "ambience" is awful. The place is completely disorganized, everything takes a long time, it's loud, there is no traffic flow or mob control, and it's total chaos everywhere you look. I can make everything they have on their menu at home, so why bother with the headaches?

Great dash in for coffee and desserts. The soups, pies and cakes are the strength of Fosters. Avoid the sandwiches.

I am always on the lookout for good vegetarian cuisine. I highly recommend Foster's veggie sandwiches.
