Local Roots combines a market where shoppers can conveniently browse a variety of products from over 100 local producers and a cafe that makes fresh, healthy, seasonal dishes from local ingredients.

Local Roots Market & Café is an experience truly unique to Wooster! The business was established in 2009 by volunteers who, with community support, who turned an empty building into a vibrant marketplace showcasing local food and handmade gifts.

Shoppers can browse products including seasonal produce, frozen meat, fresh baked goods, and a large variety of beautiful artisan creations…all sold directly from Ohio producers. The Café serves daily lunch specials that highlight the good things coming in from local farms. And an on-site commercial kitchen allows food entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses.

The innovative business model has attracted visitors from around the world and has been replicated in different communities nationwide!

Local Roots continues to thrive on community support. Throughout the year it hosts a number of events and is a great place to meet, shop, eat, and volunteer.

When visiting Wooster, be sure to stop by to see this community gem!
