My Organic Market is Getting Ready for Winter

Interviewing the manager of My Organic Market in Frederick, is a real learning experience for those who wish to know what all these labeling issues come down to. JP Exon, has been the manager of MOM’s for seven years and we decided to talk holidays and GMO’s.

JP explains that any product in any store may be labeled “all natural” this is a very general label and it can mean that it has been genetically modified ,in addition to whatever pesticide may have been used on the product. The term” organic” has a different meaning, it cannot have any artificial pesticides used in its lifespan (such as produce) and the product must be GMO free.

We talk sales for a while and JP also mentions what his big winter sellers (although it’s about 68 degrees Fahrenheit outside in December) are. Consumers in general tend to shop more when the weather is colder, JP says, and they tend to buy more cooking products in the cold weather, such as soup and baking goods. In the summer people tend to buy produce and MOM’s probably has some of the best organic produce in the area next to the farmer’s markets that set up shop all over the Frederick area.

MOM’s has been having strong sales since it first set up this third store in the Frederick area seven years ago. The original store is in College Park, Maryland and there is one other in Rockville, Maryland. They have also branched into Virginia as well. They have a wonderful selection of natural and organic products, including organic cleaning products, GMO free products and hair and skin products that are completely cruelty-free tested and approved. There are natural makeup products sold in the store as well as healthy snacks and drinks. Of course there is free coffee with sugar in the raw.

They sell meat and dairy products and an entire frozen food section. I ask JP for a business card but he tells me that in order to save paper MOM’s doesn’t believe in producing business cards.
