Recently hosting a grand opening in its new space, this unique market’s namesake comes from the Greek goddess of Agriculture with a mission built around food as medicine and a lifestyle shopping experience.

Additionally, the natural health and wellness section led by expert staff pushes the envelope in a positive direction for service  By offering online ordering, delivery and curbside pick-up, health safety is also top of mind.
