I was able to meet Margaret and Gabe today, the mother and son duo. What a breathe of fresh air to see 2 people passionate about the health of their community. Margaret, known as the Market Mom started Mustard Seed Market from a basic desire to give her kids the best. When she was pregnant with her first child, she started researching what was good and not for the baby growing inside her. It was from there that she learned about the benefits of organic and natural foods. She was looking for “real food” for her family.

Margaret believes that many people are obese these days because their bodies are craving the nutrients that they need, leading to over eating of many processed foods. Once you start eating healthier, organic, and all-natural foods, your body is finally satisfied and you start craving healthy foods.

Mustard Seed Market Renovation

If you haven’t been to the Fairlawn Mustard Seed Market recently, you will totally surprised at the renovation. From top to bottom, it’s been renovated and updated. The floors are new, the shelving, the murals on the walls, the fixtures, you name it. Many sections like the RAW foods section, and bulk dry & refrigerated sections have been expanded. New labels and sections for Gluten Free products were added. In fact, there is a whole refrigerated section with nothing but Gluten-Free items. It makes it simple for those that require this diet to shop without reading labels. Local doctors send their clients to Mustard Seed Market because of the convenience and selection.

What makes Mustard Seed Market stand out from all the other grocery stores is their food. Margaret was on a mission 30 years ago and still is for Real Food.

You don’t have to worry about what is in the food you are giving your family, Margaret and Gabe have already checked. When shopping the produce section, you’ll find about 90% of everything is organic. Of course if an item is out of season, it may be conventional. Plus, Mustard Seed Market is proud to offer local produce when possible as well. Right now, the season is perfect for locally grown, organic produce. If you are looking for great RAW and Vegan to-go dishes, check out their new section located next to the expanded bulk food section. Yes, they have an impressive refrigerated and dry good bulk section where you will save money while you stock up.

If you are looking for a tasty treat, head on over to their bakery where you will find baked goods for every sweet tooth. All bakery items are baked fresh daily in the Solon, Ohio store and shipped in daily. There is also a local vendor, Mrs. P that offers Gluten Free Bakery exclusively at Mustard Seed Market. Choose from Gluten Free cookies, muffins, brownies, eclairs, cupcakes, and more.

Stop by the Mustard Seed Market Kitchen for great salads and side dishes. Each item is made fresh daily in small batches for the tastiest, freshest dishes. Or stop by their salad bar or Sushi stand for a quick and healthy lunch. Even the seafood section is the freshest possible by offering fresh delivered fish 6 days a week.  Next door is the meat department, including fresh or frozen bison.  Their fresh meats are ground in house 1-2X daily.

The health and supplement department is the largest in the area with an excellent selection and knowledgeable staff. Cathy and Keith have a combined 45 years of experience to help you with your selection.  Mustard Seed Market also offers free educational health seminars about 3 times monthly from professionals.

Mustard Seed Market Cafe

If you haven’t stopped by the Mustard Seed Market Cafe yet, you owe it to yourself to do so. We’ve enjoyed visiting the cafe on numerous occasions for lunch, dinner, and their fabulous brunches. If you don’t have plans for Father’s Day yet, check out their Father’s Day Brunch.  Choose from a tasty menu of naturally raised meat (including bison), poultry, seafood, pasta, sandwiches, soups, signature salads, vegetarian, vegan and macrobiotic. They also have an excellent, plentiful menu for kids.

Today, my kids enjoyed a kids meal of pizza with a side of apple slices and carrots. At around $4, this was a huge kids meal compared to other places that have smaller sized kids meal. My kids could have shared 1 kids meal, but we took home the leftovers which made for a great snack before bed tonight. :0
