MOM’s Organic Market Opens in Dobbs Ferry
MOM’s organic market in Dobbs Ferry
Founded in 1987, MOM's Organic Market has grown over three decades to serve several Mid-Atlantic states and DC, with more than 1,000 employees and a culture centered on its “purpose”: to protect and restore the environment. Now this family-owned and -operated grocery store chain has come to Dobbs Ferry.
The new store, which opened February 19, features 10-foot-wide aisles for social distancing; certified organic produce; an extensive selection of bulk offerings, for plastic-free shopping; a Backyard Beekeeping section offering all the tools needed for a home practice; sustainable insect proteins; sustainable fresh and canned seafood; certified organic and sustainable clothing; an expansive health and wellness section; free electric car charging; a recycling center for compost, eyeglasses, cell phones, shoes, corks and household batteries; and no marketing to kids (MOM’s doesn’t allow products that target children with licensed cartoon characters on the package).
In partnership with Sustainable Westchester, MOM’s Dobbs Ferry will be sponsoring a local solar project in Yonkers, to decrease community reliance on dirty energy. During its first month of operations, it has also set aside dates when it will donate 5 percent of its sales to various local environmental nonprofits. Upcoming recipients are the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County (March 5-7) and Greenburgh Nature Center (March 12-14).
Location: MOM's Organic Market, 83 Stanley Ave, Dobbs Ferry, NY. For more information, call 914.266.0937, visit MomsOrganicMarket.com or check out MOM’s on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
