A Holistic Approach To Food.
Local Roots was established in 2009 by volunteers who, with community support, turned an empty building into a vibrant marketplace showcasing local food and handmade gifts.
Our mission: "To establish a year-round market place for the purpose of connecting consumers and producers of locally grown foods and other agricultural products. Our goals are to encourage healthy eating, expand local economic development, promote community involvement and sustainable living."
Shoppers can browse our market of seasonal produce, frozen meat, fresh baked goods and a large variety of beautiful artisan creations... most sold directly from our network of over 150 Ohio producers. The Café serves a daily lunch that highlights the good things coming from local farms. An on-site commercial kitchen allows food entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses.
Throughout the year, Local Roots hosts a number of events and is a great place to meet, shop, eat and volunteer.
