Raley’s opens first all-organic retail location
The store was developed specifically to meet the needs of consumers overwhelmed by trying to decipher food labels and translate ingredient lists.
Raley’s, West Sacramento, Calif., opened Market 5-ONE-5, a new modern market focused on customers’ well-being.
Market 5‑ONE‑5 is the company’s first all-organic retail location, situated in downtown Sacramento, Calif, where every item in the store is hand-selected based on three core values—organic, nutrition and education (ONE).
“Market 5‑ONE‑5 and what it stands for has been a vision of ours for a long time,” says Michael Teel, owner. “Its purpose is to offer our community access to fresh, nutritious and affordable food. Its mission is to help people live healthy, vital lives by taking the guesswork out of understanding nutrition.”
The store was developed specifically to meet the needs of consumers overwhelmed by trying to decipher food labels and translate ingredient lists. This includes minimally processed, organic and sustainably sourced products that are free of unrecognizable ingredients not found in nature.
“Market 5‑ONE‑5 is about conviction to a core set of principles,” says Keith Knopf, chief operating officer. “We don’t stock products we don’t believe in, so customers can trust everything on the shelves. Our team members know exactly where our products come from, what is in them and how they were produced.”
The team members at Market 5‑ONE‑5 include chefs, foodies, urban farmers, nutritionists and a registered dietitian.
Market 5‑ONE‑5 offers in-store shopping, eating and socializing, including wine by the glass; beer and kombucha on tap; a coffee, tea and juice bar; and space for indoor and outdoor dining. The store features seasonally-prepared cuisine for in-store dining and home delivery. The market will also offer catering delivered to local businesses in the City of Sacramento.
The store is part of Raley’s corporation, but managed independently.
