Who We Are

Welcome to our story...we really look forward to you becoming a part of it!!

1994 was a banner year for us (Lisa and Zeke). We met, got married, started a business all in one year. The business idea sprouted one day when we went shopping at our local grocery store in Dupont Circle and decided that we were tired of buying "tired" produce and thought there were probably many others who felt the same way. We both were in the restaurant business at the time, Lisa as a chef and Zeke in an owner-partnership, and we knew that there was better produce available then what was making it to the grocery stores. Voila...the birth of Washington's Green Grocer!! Fast forward 20 years and here we are, still as excited as day one!

Our priority and focus from the start has always been to provide excellent quality produce and locally and regionally produced products as well as stellar customer service to every customer while helping to grow, support and encourage sustainable local agriculture...and to have fun doing it!

Over the years we have attracted a wonderful group of employees and although many of you may only meet a few of us, we're all working together to make sure that your Washington's  Green Grocer experience is a great one!  Because we think it's really valuable to put a face to a name , we really hope you'll visit our MEET OUR CREW page to not only meet our crew but learn a little out all of us too!
