Sustainable Holiday Hosting presented by MOM's Organic Market, THURSDAY!!

MOM's Organic Market is excited to hosting their first Sustainable Holiday Hosting community outreach event this Thursday evening (November 20th) from 6:30-8:00pm at the Four Mile Run Conservatory Center (4109 Mt Vernon Avenue).

MOM's staff will be demonstrating and tasting some of their favorite holiday foods and meal suggestions, from gluten free stuffing to organic pies with healthy toppings.

They'll also be sharing information about ways to keep the holidays more sustainable.

Everything is free of charge and MOM's plan to make sure the time is fun for the whole family.

MOM's Organic Market opened is Arlandria location in October 2002 at 3831 Mount Vernon Avenue and does business 7 days a week from 9am-9pm (Except Sundays: 9am-8pm).

Founded in 1987 by Scott Nash at the age of 22 with an initial investment of $100 as a home delivery business out of his mom's garage, MOM's mission is "To Protect and Restore the Environment":

We believe that environmental destruction and climate change are the biggest problems facing humankind today. We believe that in leading by example we can protect and restore the environment. By instituting best practices to reduce our impact on the environment, and by educating staff and customers, we are influencing customers, employees, and many other businesses.

MOM's has been a strong supporter of environmental efforts throughout the region and right in their own backyard in Arlandria's Four Mile Run Park (see links below). With the news is out that the Mount Vernon Village Center redevelopment is going forward (Arlandria Redevelopment Project Could Get Rolling in 2014), MOM's will continue to serve Arlandria in new and better ways. According to the a spokesman for the development, "MOM's is getting bigger"...more space in the new building next to their current location.
