GreenLeaf Market will deliver a unique combination of farm fresh quality, community and convenience for residents of north St. Louis City, and beyond. GreenLeaf Market is the first grocery store to be built in north St. Louis City since 1968 and is proudly owned by St. Louis Grocery Group, in partnership with the Good Natured Family Farms cooperative alliance created by co-owner Diana Endicott.
“We value farm fresh and local nutritious, affordable food as the foundation for a strong community,” said Endicott.
As a locally-owned and operated grocer, GreenLeaf Market strives to support other local and regional businesses by working with over 100 family farms to deliver high-quality, fresh food and a wide range of unique products that you won’t find at other grocers in the area. GreenLeaf Market is actively engaged in the neighborhood community, working with church and civic leaders to help ensure that residents’ needs are being met. More than 72 new jobs will be created by GreenLeaf, which is just the beginning of a larger, longer-term plan to spur job growth and new development and help regenerate the economy of the NorthSide.
The 20,000-square-foot store will feature a state-of-the-art kitchen and an experienced, on-site chef who will be focused on creating fresh, nutritious, affordable, fully-prepared grab-and-go food selections while cooking with farm fresh ingredients. GreenLeaf Market will also be ramping up convenient curbside pick-up for online orders to better serve the needs of commuters and people working downtown.
With an in-house bee colony, the market will deliver an educational experience for people of all ages.
“GreenLeaf Market will be partnering up with more local businesses to strengthen our community, while adopting new technology to create a truly one-of-a-kind grocery shopping experience. From the moment you enter GreenLeaf and experience the full-height mural depicting the near NorthSide, you know you are in a unique setting,” said Eyad Tammas of St. Louis Grocery Group.
A grand opening for GreenLeaf is set for mid-April. Follow GreenLeaf on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram for the latest news as details are finalized around this exciting community celebration.
