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 read the labels so you don’t have to!

Lots of Organic, non-GMO, fair trade, earthly-friendly, vegan, and gluten-free options…

We have thousands of Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified items throughout the store. Our produce department is 100% organic, so you never need to worry about accidentally picking up an item that has been sprayed with chemical pesticides. We prohibit items that contain GMOs in all departments. Our meat comes from farmers who care about animal welfare. Most are Certified Organic, rated by the Global Animal Partnership or are Certified Humane. Our seafood gets 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 the widest selection of plant-based foods in all of Maryland.

Friendly team providing great guest 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.
