Our Story

 

Local Roots’ owner, JD Wenger, spent his childhood learning about dirt and worms and all the other things that really matter in life while growing up on the family farm. Building on those experiences JD poured out his sweat and tears and money to make Local Roots a reality.

And here at Local Roots, the heart behind all that we do is working to provide you with fresh, locally grown and raised food. This store exists because of the farmers around Kansas City who work hard to bring the best of what the region has to offer directly to your table. Local Roots Market gets to be a part of that big picture by introducing you to delicious food from farms and farmers that you can trust.

our values

We here at Local Roots Market strive to bring only the purest of ingredients to you and your family. We believe in serving you products with labels you can read, and knowing that you can trust the ingredients. We believe in the old-fashioned farming methods: animals roaming free in grassy pastures without being mistreated or fed dangerous chemicals, and produce being grown through natural means, without being genetically altered or chemically treated. By incorporating local farmers and businesses, we aim to offer you a way to stay closer to home, eat healthier, and not have to question what you’re eating. We are here to serve not only your kitchen, but also your health and your level of ease.
