Mrs. Green’s Natural Market is scheduled to open its first Mid-Atlantic outpost this Friday in Fairfax, Va.
The fast-growing chain of natural/specialty stores, owned by Natural Markets Food Group, Irvington, N.Y., operates most of its 18 locations in suburban New York, but also has stores in Connecticut and one each in Chicago and in Calgary, Alberta. It has openings planned in West Windsor, N.J., and in Manhattan’s West Village, in addition to more locations in Connecticut. NMFG also operates Planet Organic stores in Canada.
The Fairfax store, located in the Fair Lakes Shopping Center, will be a short distance from both a Walmart and a Whole Foods. A Harris Teeter and a Safeway are also within about two miles of Mrs. Green's Fairfax location.
Natural Markets Food Group group is owned by Toronto-based investor Catalyst Capital Group, and is headed by Robin Michel, former president of Ahold’s Giant-Landover chain.
