The Root Cellar is a neighborhood grocery store selling local food. All of the products sold are from farmers within a 150-mile radius of the city of Louisville. The first store opened in Old Louisville, the second in Germantown. Providing farm-fresh products to neighborhoods without access to local food is part of The Root Cellar’s mission. For example, the Louisville neighborhoods of California, Park Hill, Algonquin, Smoketown, Shelby Park and Limerick are considered food deserts, areas without access to produce, whole grains, dairy, and other foods needed to build a healthy meal. All of these neighborhoods are areas The Root Cellar is interested in moving into.
