    The Fresh Market, Inc. (TFM) decreased its annual guidance following revenues that did not maintain the momentum established the quarter earlier. For the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, Fresh Market reported comparable sales growth of 3.4%, continued improvement from the previous quarter's growth of 3.0% Revenues increased 13.3% to $354.8M from this quarter a year ago but declined sequentially from first quarter. Earnings guidance was reduced from the $1.51 to $1.58 range to between $1.50 and $1.55 earnings per share.
