Grassroots Local Market

Grassroots Local Market

Grassroots Local Market is a cooperatively-owned grocery store in Downtown Lynchburg, Virginia. Grassroots is currently in the funding stage, having raised over $300,000 of the $400,000 needed to open the store. Our goal is to strengthen the downtown by forming a community owned and governed full-service natural foods store. We want to solve several downtown and greater Lynchburg needs with one effort: create a full-service grocery; provide a one-stop shop for natural, organic, and local foods; help relieve the downtown food desert and improve the vitality of the downtown.

We envision a natural foods grocery concentrating primarily on natural, organic, and local products which does not exist in Lynchburg. In addition the store will contain a full commercial kitchen offering a good selection of freshly prepared grab-n-go foods and a small cafe for light dining. 

Grassroots Local Market is a CGN SEEDLING co-op—a startup working towards "doors on the store."
