WILMINGTON’S BEST EVENT CATERER

We have been voted Wilmington’s Best Caterer by Encore Magazine and Star News. We are pleased to be on the preferred caterer’s list at the majority of venues throughout town. We attribute our success and stellar reputation not only to the superior quality of the food that we prepare, but also to our exceptional service and staff.

Why us?

At Pine Valley Market, we understand that celebrating with friends and family is special. That’s why we strive to provide you with the highest quality ingredients and products, along with a level of service that will make your event unforgettable. Whether it be a corporate event, wedding, or just a casual gathering – our years of experience, talented staff, and delicious culinary creations will make your event one to remember!

Weddings & Events

When it comes to weddings, we know that no two are alike. That’s why we tailor our services specifically to your wants and needs, and create the perfect menu for your special day. We have packages available for both receptions and rehearsal dinners, as well as custom packages to fit any budget. Every style has its own benefits and challenges, something we have years of experience with, and can help you determine which will be the perfect fit to make your special day a reality!

Since there are so many variables to consider for these types of events, a personal quote must be created to assure the portions and variety are properly calculated. The menus below provide lists of ideas to begin the process, but are by no means all-inclusive! With the help of our staff, we can create a custom menu to fit your needs perfectly. 

One of the best advantages of working with Pine Valley Market is that we are a chef-driven company. There are simply no limitations to what we can prepare for you, no corporate guidelines of what we can and cannot order, and no recipes we are required to follow. If you need special changes made to one of our items to accommodate your diet or allergies, no problem!

Corporate Luncheons

We use local produce when in season and support North Carolina farms and retailers. We make all our own deli salads, casseroles, and slice our own meats. You can taste the difference and we appreciate all our customers for supporting local!

Business luncheons, meetings, and events often require a few extra touches to make them special. Leave the heavy lifting to us! We offer our luncheon packages Monday – Friday, with delivery upon request and availability. We ask that orders be placed at least 48 hours in advance, and delivery fees are dependent on distance. Prices are per person, with a minimum of 10 people per event. Choose from our delectable menu below, and let us make your corporate event one to remember!

Party Platters

Our pick-up platters are custom-made with the freshest ingredients and are perfect for a variety of occasions. Choose from our menu below, and let us create something special just for you! We offer pick-up platters with a 72-hour notice and the option of delivery for an additional cost.

Catering FAQs

How much does full service catering cost?

The cost of full-service catering can vary based on how many people you plan to have attend the event, the time of the event as well as the kind and amount of food you would like to offer. We are highly flexible and able to “cater”  to your specific needs. We pride ourselves on creating eye-catching, flavorful food that will impress your wedding guests and leave them with an unforgettable experience. We are committed to working alongside our clients to create a custom catering menu that will fit your budget, tastes, and style of your event!

How many catering platters do I need for my event?

Our platter menu offers you complete control over your menu.  There is no perfect formula that can calculate the number of platters needed for your event, but with our 20+ years of experience and knowledgeable staff ready to assist you, we can help you create the right mix and balance of selections.  Variables such as time of day, number of guests, dietary needs, and even the type of event all come into play when trying to plan the perfect menu.  We do recommend quantity over variety when utilizing this menu for a large group.

How do I choose the service style for my full-service event?

There are 4 primary catering styles available for your full-service event that include buffet style, family style, food stations, and plated and served. There are several factors that can come into play when determining which style will work best. At Pine Valley Market, we will work with you to help you determine which style best suits your needs, your venue, your budget, and the overall feel of the event you are creating.  

Buffet Style:
This style includes an elegantly arranged food display on tables where guests can filter through and make selections on their own. We recommend a plated salad to precede this service style allowing us to tap tables and create a  natural flow to the buffet, avoiding long lines.

Food Stations:
This catering style involves having strategically placed food stations placed throughout the event venue, allowing guests to mingle more as they collect food items.

Family Style:
Family-style catering falls right between a buffet and a plated meal. Family style essentially brings the buffet to the guests at their table, allowing your guests to stay seated throughout the dining process.

Plated & Served:
This is the most formal kind of catering where guests will be seated at a table, and servers will bring their meals to them.
