We want to open an organic grocery store in Asbury Park, NJ. Be a part of this exciting and much needed community project. xo

Welcome to Asbury Park.

Just about an hour south of NYC, Asbury Park is a shore-side town in New Jersey that has very recently started to see a tremendous amount of growth in its downtown area. This growth has brought us some amazing restaurants and shops that have started to transform this seaside community into a bustling city. There is one thing missing in our community…there is no where to buy organic, fresh produce or natural home products. Sure there are a few farmers markets during the summer when the weather is nice, but what about the rest of the year? There is no where for the community in Asbury Park to buy great quality food, and by great quality food we mean organically grown, non-GMO produce that we feel is necessary for a healthy family and community to grow. We want to change that.

Real. Good. Food.

Our goal is to open a full serviced and stocked organic grocery for the town of Asbury Park.  Like our mission at Seed to Sprout, we want to make healthy eating and organic produce as easy and accessible to our community as possible. 

We want to bring you organic fruits, vegetables, bulk grains and other dry goods, delicious prepared meals, local products, earth friendly cleaners, detergents, you name it! In addition, we want to offer cooking classes, nutrition workshops and other lectures and events to inspire and educate our community, open to every demographic. We are so happy to bring this much needed grocery to Asbury Park and bring everyone closer to real, good, food.

The Space.

We have an amazing location that we have leased, located on the corner of Main Street & Fourth Avenue in Asbury Park. It is a raw space, approximately 900 square feet. It's the perfect size for a small but well stocked grocery store. The space is equipped with a small parking lot for about eight cars and a bike rack, so patrons would not have to worry about finding a parking spot on Main Street. Inside, the space features beautiful exposed brick walls and lovely french doors that will soon welcome all of the wonderful people in our community ready to shop for groceries in our own neighborhood!!

With your help we can establish an amazing place for the community to grow together and nourish our bodies and families. Help us achieve this goal.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are many risks and challenges when dealing with a retail business. From attaining the proper zoning and business permits, dealing with equipment and building repairs, to maintaining a constant flow of fresh, organic products for you to enjoy, we have been able to effectively manage all of these types of challenges as a partnership.
