Marylandís family-owned organic grocer, MOMís Organic Market, will open a new store in Waldorf.
The store, MOMís first location in Charles County, will provide customers with a selection of certified organic produce, grass-fed organic meat and dairy, bulk food, coffee, spices, seafood and food for gluten-free and raw diets.
Located at the intersection of U.S. 301 and Plaza Way, MOMís Waldorf was renovated following environmentally conscious principles that support MOMís purpose: to protect and restore the environment, according to a news release announcing the storeís opening.
Like all MOMís locations, MOMís Waldorf will be 100 percent wind powered, the release states.
The store will feature recycling centers for CFL bulbs, household batteries and used shoes. Two free electric-car charging stations will be available in the parking lot. MOMís also offsets the carbon footprint for shopping by purchasing carbon credits from TerraPass in proportion to estimated emissions from customersí travel to and from the store, the release states.
The store will celebrate its grand opening Nov. 9, 10 and 11. The festivities will include local vendor demonstrations, free food samples, goody bags and gift-baskets, plus crafting activities and henna face-paint for children.
Founded by Scott Nash in 1987, MOMís Organic Market started as a Beltsville-based organic produce delivery service. MOMís now operates 10 stores in the region.
