MOM’s Organic Market, a chain of family-owned and operated organic grocery stores, opened its first store in New York in Dobbs Ferry on February 19. The supermarket is located on 83 Stanley Avenue.
MOM’s was founded in 1987 and is focused on supporting, protecting, and restoring the environment. The small chain grocer is dedicated to providing sustainable, high quality produce that is certified organic.
“We are so excited to have our first New York location in Dobbs Ferry,” Founder and CEO of MOM’s Scott Nash says. “This area has a shared world view with MOM’s – a dedication to organics and the environment – being the type of community that we are proud to be a part of. We also love being right on the Saw Mill River Parkway!”
MOM’s Dobbs Ferry has a selection of bulk offerings for plastic free shopping, a backyard beekeeping section, and an expansive health and wellness section. It also has a recycling center and even sells certified organic and sustainable clothing.
To celebrate its grand opening in Dobbs Ferry, MOM’s is partnering with four local environmental non-profit organizations to support sustainability efforts in Westchester. During its first month in business, MOM’s Dobbs Ferry will donate 5% of its grand opening weekend sales to Sustainable Westchester, Groundwork Hudson Valley, Greenburgh Nature Center, and the Federal Conservationists of Westchester County.
MOM’s is also sponsoring a local solar community project in Yonkers. The initiative aims to reduce carbon emissions and community reliance on harmful energy. Community members who participate in the project will receive 60% of the power generated.
