About Us

Roots Market: Your independent, locally-owned source of clean food at honest prices.

 

Here’s what we have to offer:

A terrific selection of organic, all-natural, and gourmet foods and wellness products…
We are a full-service grocery store, offering everything you need for your weekly shopping trip: amazing organic produce, domestic and international grocery items, earth-friendly paper products and kitchen tools, healthy prepared foods with lots of veg-friendly options, fabulous baked goods including many baked in our own kitchen, and a full range of health and wellness products.

Products you can buy with confidence…
Our buyers are VERY picky! They scrutinize every ingredient list on every product that we put on the shelves to make sure it meets our stringent product guidelines. We work hard to make sure that the products we carry are, wherever possible, free of chemical preservatives, artificial flavors and colors, synthetic pesticides, and even things like corn syrup and trans fats. You’ll find only the good stuff here.

Lots of non-GMO, fair trade, earthly-friendly, veg-centric, and gluten-free options…
We have partnered with the Non-GMO Project to help our customers identify Non-GMO Project Verified products; you’ll find Non-GMO Project Verified shelf tags all throughout the store. Likewise, How Good rating tags on the shelves identify the very best eco-conscious products on the market.

Our meat comes from farmers who care about animal welfare. Many are rated by the Global Animal Partnership or are Certified Humane, and we’ve visited some of our local farms to see first-hand how their animals are treated. Our sustainably harvested or farmed seafood get the nod from the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) or the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program.

Did you know we offer one of the best selections of gluten-free products in the area? Finally, we encourage folks to adopt a plant-based diet and make it easy to do so by offering many delicious veg-friendly and vegan-friendly foods.

Friendly staff, great customer service…
Our friendly store associates get regular training on the latest food trends and issues, and can not only educate you about our various products but are happy to recommend their favorite items. Need something special ordered? No problem, just ask!

The right prices, the right size stores…
No mega store here! Our stores are sized just right to offer everything you need while not being so big that you have to set aside a whole day to get your shopping done. Plus, we work extra hard to offer competitive pricing on our products.

Conscious Corner partner stores…
Not everybody makes the connection, but Roots Market is part of an eco-oriented family of retail stores that we call the Conscious Corner. Our sister stores include Great Sage (our casual-upscale vegan restaurant), and Nest (earth-friendly gifts, housewares, art, toys, and clothing). We think these stores, in their own ways, all contribute to our goal of making the planet we share a better place.
