New MOM's Organic Market Opens in Ivy City
A brand new MOM's Organic Market has opened its newest location at 1501 New York Avenue (the old Hecht's Warehouse building in Ivy City). MOM's is a DC area chain of grocery stores that favors green living and local products. All of their produce is organic, as are many of their other products. As one might expect from the name, MOM's sells many items to those who follow a vegan or gluten free diet. They also have a large selection of bulk dry goods (nuts, grains, lentils, ect.). You can even bring in your own container, have the staff weigh it empty, and use that to transport your dry goods.
MOM's has a reputation for generally having lower prices than you might find at Whole Foods, but with a similar selection. They even offer a price guarantee for brand packaged goods that says they will match the price if you find it cheaper at another natural foods store (not applicable to produce or bulk dry goods).

Hungry? Try one of their organic food bowls prepared at Naked Lunch. They also do fresh organic raw juices.
There is plenty of garage parking.
