Local Organic Food Market
Welcome to Ellwood Thompson's Natural Food Market, where our commitment to local and organic foods really shines. We offer a varied selection of locally grown and produced food items in our Richmond market, ensuring you'll find just what you're looking for when you come visit.
Our selection doesn't stop at super fresh produce, though. From wine, beer, and cheese to health supplements and fresh meat and seafood, we really have it all. Stop in to our kitchen for lunch, pick up vegan or gluten-free bakery items, or simply stop in to say hello. We look forward to seeing you.
Meet our June 2013 Ambassador, Chris Milk. Chris is a self taught painter, inspired by his Oregon Hill neighborhood, nature, music and life. He is currently painting a mural in-store for our Community Room. Check out Chris’s portfolio here.
Sunday, June 30th we will be donating 5% of our sales to the Tricycle Gardens.
Tricycle Gardens is a grassroots, environmental nonprofit organization focused on bringing agriculture, nutrition education and healthy food access to the urban core of Richmond, Virginia. Founded in 2002 by three architects living in Church Hill who believed community gardens, and the simple act of growing food, were the fastest ways to transform the overall health of their community – both for the residents and the environment.
The goal of Tricycle Gardens is to transform abandoned, overgrown urban lots into sources of food and opportunities for economic development in low income neighborhoods. Starting with a group of friends and neighbors planting one community garden on a vacant lot owned by The Better Housing Coalition; Tricycle Gardens has grown into four community gardens, three learning gardens, a green house at Bryan Park, a ½-acre urban farm and a 3,000 sq ft edible forest garden at the Science Museum of Virginia.
