Eco-Friendly Notes

Grassroots Grocery is a social enterprise on a mission to cultivate appreciation for where our food comes from, promote the benefits of sustainable agriculture, strengthen our region’s network of farmers and food-based businesses, and educate residents on the many ways that supporting small businesses revitalizes our community.

We are transforming our neighborhood, once a USDA designated “food desert” into a home for healthy affordable food. Projects such as our community mural entitled “Abundance” and our “free fruit for kids & cops” program are just the beginning to the metamorphosis that Grassroots Grocery is inspiring, with local food at the heart of it all.

Starting in 2017, we will offer cooking classes, composting workshops, and education on food preserving techniques such as canning & dehydrating.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

Grassroots Grocery is a member-owned store that currently offers products from over 50 local and regional producers! A localized food system can be a key catalyst to broader economic and social revitalization. Plus, we have a commercial kitchen in the works, which will have an exponential effect on the number of local entrepreneurs we can support.
