Stay Local. Buy Honest.

THINK LOCAL, THINK HONEST WEIGHT

We pride ourselves on sourcing products locally from 285 farms and 319 producers, allowing us to carry over 4,200 local products. This means the produce and meat you feed your family is fresher. Cuts down on fossil fuels, we know our farmers, and supporting them means supporting the local economy.

SUPPORT LOCAL: CREATE COMMUNITY

Honest Weight donates 5% of our profits to local community initiatives. We reach 25,000 people annually through outreach at local schools, libraries, and community-based organizations. Supporting local creates community.

STAY LOCAL

When you shop at Honest Weight, you support the local economy that Honest Weight has been supporting for the past 40 years. Money that is spent locally, stays local. In fact, one Chicago study found that for every $100 spent at a local business, $68 remained in the city while only $43 of each $100 spent at a chain retailer. Local business owners often have incentive to support other local businesses, patronizing local establishments for both business and personal reasons. Chain businesses, on the other hand, tend to get their supplies from corporate, as well as having store managers and employees that aren’t as personally invested in buying local.

BUY HONEST

Honest Weight has been owned by community members for forty years. Anyone can become an owner and you decide how involved you’d like to be.

We strive for total transparancy. Buying policies and sourcing, and are run through democratic decision-making process.

Your Homegrown grocery store is the Capital Region’s place to stay local and buy honest.
