Harvest Market’s product guidelines are strict. Like many independently owned natural foods stores we do not sell foods with artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Our emphasis has always been to stock the broadest selection of organically grown foods—foods sustainably grown without petroleum-based pesticides and fertilizers. Locally produced and Fair Trade products are likewise important to us.
Now that foods produced though trans-species genetic modification (i.e. GMO’s) are ubiquitous in the American food supply, Harvest Market has announced that it will no longer stock new foods containing GMO at-risk ingredients. Additionally, any existing foods containing at-risk ingredients will be eventually phased out as non-GMO alternatives are found.
