New MOM’s Organic Market Opens in Merrifield

September 14th, 2012 · 3 Comments

We’re long time fans of MOM’s Organic Market, but moving away from the Alexandria location has made it harder to visit — until now. MOM’s has opened it’s newest Virginia location in Merrifield. (Technically it’s in Fairfax but just outside Falls Church.) Merrifield is the site of the coming-soon Mosaic District shopping center which will also have a Red Apron Butcher (yay!) and Target (for those less organic needs). The ninth store in the local MOM’s family, the Merrifield store is holding it’s grand opening celebration this weekend, Friday 9/14 through Sunday 9/16, with lots of great samples and kids activities. The littlest foodie tot and I got a sneak peek today.

It may have helped that it was lunchtime, but the tot walked through the aisles exclaiming, “Purple milk? I LOVE purple milk. Bread? I LOVE bread. Cheese? I LOVE cheese,” and so on. (We also took home two free loaves of Spring Mill bread — a locally-baked favorite.)

After we finished shopping, we shared a beet burger and blueberry muffin from the Naked Lunch counter. (They’ll have kombucha on tap, if you’re into that sort of thing.) If you’re local, you’ll want to head on down and check it out!

    We have a Mom’s near us in Herndon. I’ve gone a few times. Do you have tips for shopping there and how it price compares to Wegman’s organics?

    I am so excited about this–we’re going to check it out this weekend.

    I will fall over when the Taylor Gourmet finally opens too.

    @Hannah — They actually have a poster up in the store that says on a basket of brand-name organics, MOMs is the cheapest. But its followed closely by Wegman’s. I like the bulk goods at MOMs, and when it comes to the pricier organics, try to stock up on my favorite pantry items whenever they’re on sale. That said, I’ve been spending more when I go to MOMs than Whole Foods — probably because I keep finding new things to try there while at WF I tend to just grab what I need.

    @Jennifer — Oh, I know. So much yumminess is going in there!
