Harvest Market Recipient of one of Progressive Grocer Magazine’s Outstanding Independents Awards for 2023


Harvest Market was recently notified that it is the recipient of one of Progressive Grocer Magazine’s Outstanding Independents Awards for 2023. Along with 24 other family-owned grocers, ranging in size from 1 to 114 stores, Harvest Market has been recognized as one of the 25 companies from around the country that, “Though they may not be able to compete with larger chains in terms of scale, many have perfected the fine art of making themselves beloved and indispensable members of their respective communities,” according to Progressive Grocer.


Harvest Market was commended for our “striving for excellence ” in everything we do as evidenced by our excellent customer service, our consecutive Wilmington News Journal/Energage Top Workplace Awards, and our Green Restaurant Association 3-Star Certified Kitchen rating, which we earned with one of the highest scores for ingredient quality in the GRA rankings.


Just like starting with the best ingredients with which we prepare our nutritious and delicious grab-and-go soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, sides and desserts, it takes many “ingredients” to operate a successful, independent grocery store like Harvest Market. Our great food and other products, our fearless farmers and other suppliers, our amazing staff and, yes, you–our loyal, patient and friendly customers, are all vital ingredients in making Harvest Market a true community grocer.

Thank you for your continued confidence and support.
