We're super excited to announce a major step toward that goal, our first promotional sale period! We have over 250 items going on sale for the rest of October starting today! Check out the sale flyer below with a few featured items, and come to the store and look for these signs to find out what else is on sale!Read More
Greetings from Grassroots Local Market! We opened our doors on September 1st and have celebrated our first month in business! We would like to thank everyone for their continued support - especially our member-owners who helped make this dream a reality!
We have enjoyed greeting many of you at the store already and hope to see you again very soon! If you haven't stopped by the store yet... we are open daily from 8am to 8pm, be sure to come and say hello!
Now that we have been open for a bit and have many of our systems in place, we are able to start expanding and building on some our departments. You've asked for it, we listened! There has been wonderful feedback already on the store's grocery and produce items, but there has been a significant number of requests for breakfast and a larger selection of "grab 'n go" items to be added to our deli. We've added a variety of new items to our deli menu and will send out weekly emails with details.
