Family-owned and -operated MOM’s Organic Market will host a grand opening celebration this weekend at its first New Jersey store—located at 1631 Kings Highway North in Cherry Hill. The festivities begin Friday.
The new store features 100% certified organic produce; Naked Lunch, an all organic, vegetarian eatery; free car-charging stations; only sustainable seafood; sustainable insect proteins section; extensive liquid bulk section, including oil, vinegar, honey, household cleaners, detergents and hand soaps; a recycling center for wine corks, eyeglasses, plastic bags, cell phones, household batteries and shoes; Backyard Beekeeping section to equip guests with all the tools needed to sustain these pollinators at home; North American Native Bee feature from conservation photographer Clay Bolt; expansive health and wellness section with bulk herbs and body care, plus a variety of GOTS-certified clothing; and GOTS-certified organic pillows and mattresses.
Additionally, MOM’s says it does not sell products that use licensed cartoon characters to market to children.
“We love the Philly region and can’t wait to open MOM’s Cherry Hill, our second store in the area,” says founder and CEO Scott Nash.
Five percent of MOM’s grand opening sales will go to Sustainable Cherry Hill, working to educate, engage and inspire people to create a more sustainable South Jersey community.
MOM’s is based in Rockville, Maryland, and currently operates 15 organic grocery stores in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C., according to its website.
