About Us

Your Market with a Heart

The foundation of our business is based on the following:

  • Wellness
  • Trust
  • Local
  • Prosperity for all

We are committed to offering products that enhance wellness.  In today's world of over stimulation and confusing information we're here to help you discern what healthy, natural choices are best for you and your family.

We are committed to offering an environment of trust and friendliness.  We have so much to learn from one another.  Our Market is a community 'safe place' where everyone feels welcome.

Through our commitment to local producers and growers, we keep dollars in our community and oil in the ground. We're proud to showcase so many creative and innovative products that are sourced right here in western North Carolina.

We are committed to making heath and well-being accessible to everyone!  We work hard to find the right balance of fairness to our customers, generosity to our staff and community, and the health of our business.

Healthy Food

We're proud to sell all organic produce, and to feed you primarily organic ingredients from our deli.  We pay close attention to the ingredients in all our products.  You will not find artificial colors or flavorings, high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, hormones, hydrogenated oils, trans-fats, MSG, or a host of other ingredients you would find in other markets.  In addition, all new products we bring in to the Market are non-GMO.


Local Economy

West Village Market supports local businesses, local farms and local producers of all sorts!  We carry close to 200 local products in our store.  Innovative QUALITY items from Asheville and the surrounding area are available in every department - Grocery and snacks, produce, coffee, beer & wine, health and bodycare, flowers, baked goods, chocolate, kombucha, tempeh, vegan & dairy cheeses, crackers, ice cream, granola, gifts... on and on it goes.  We are so blessed in this community to have such an abundant supply of truly healthy and unique food and non-food products.

Local Community

We also love to support local artists, crafters and other local businesses.  You'll often find someone on our patio sharing their craft.  And, we're happy to host a family open mic on the first Monday of every month!

Food Politics

We are dedicated to making important information about food politics available to our community. We do this by maintaining a lending library where customers can find books and magazines about issues surrounding the food we eat, and by hosting and participating in community awareness events.
