What is Ripe Revival Market?
Ripe Revival Market is the direct-to-consumer arm of our brand where we work hard to bring “Farm Fresh to Front Door” in a variety of ways. We leverage our relationships with farmers and makers, food vendors and the community at large which enables us to provide our household consumers access to the best fresh and local products around - while simultaneously addressing the gap between excess & access.
Through Ripe Revival Market, we work with dozens of farmers and makers to offer you 250+ mostly local and regional products. We are the direct connection between you and the source, which allows us to offer great service, quality, value, and convenience!
We offer first of its kind access and convenience with customized control over ordering fresh produce, meat, dairy, eggs, and other NC Made grocery goods. You can build your own orders and have them delivered directly to your door, or you can find our neighborhood vans to buy from on the spot! You can also come see us and ship in person at our retail store in Rocky Mount, NC (161 English Rd Rocky Mount, NC 27804).
Why Should I Use Ripe Revival Market?
When you work with us and used Ripe Revival Market, you become part of the solution. You won’t only gain access to an exclusive membership offering you discounted rates to fresh and local goods! Ny working with Ripe Revival Market, you are supporting both local farmers and makers – AND – families facing food insecurity. For every single purchase, we give a percentage of revenue to the 501©3 non profit “Ripe For Revival” where we are working hard in communities to empower others.
Sounds like a win/win right? Gain access to products you cant typically get at a local grocery store, pay less, have control and convenience, and give back to others…
The real question is “Why shouldn’t I use Ripe Revival Market?”
What Makes Our Food Different or Special?
Our food is special for many reasons – but the most obvious is that we are working hand in hand with the producer which gives us the opportunity to give you better pricing, better freshness, better control, and frankly just a better all around experience.
As a company, we do work hard to “Bridge the Gap between Farm Excess and Food Access”, so we often buy and offer products that farmers don’t typically have a home for. At times, this may mean that we sell or ship a farmers crop that has cosmetic damage, but is perfectly healthy otherwise. For example, if you order sweet potatoes – we may send sweet potatoes that were “rejected” by retailers because they are misshapen. Perfectly healthy, and perfectly edible – they are just too ugly!
Well, with your help – we can give farmers a return on crops that they typically leave in the fields, ultimately giving them higher yields, better profits, and opportunities to be more secure in providing for their families!
We ALWAYS prioritize local first, and will always have local when in season. Since product seasons come and go, we will source from regional farmers and others in order to keep the products you want and need in stock! There are also items that just cannot be grown locally like pineapples for example, so you will see products available that are not always local.
We Give Back!
As mentioned in a previous question – WE GIVE BACK. For every dollar thart comes in, we typically contribute 5-7% back to our mission through the nonprofit Ripe For Revival, which will go towards our three programs that focus on food insecurity, education, and health and nutrition.
When you buy from Ripe Revival Market, you support farmers and makers while also giving back to your community. Together, we can all make a difference and we are proud to facilitate a way for every customer to be a part of the solution!
