Mother Earth Foods
Informally recognized as West Virginia’s longest established independent natural food and supplement store, Mother Earth Foods has been in business at the same location since 1975 in Parkersburg, West Virginia. They have evolved to meet customer needs over forty years, and offer a wide variety of vitamins and supplements, organic, gourmet, bulk, gluten-free and non-GMO foods, fair trade products, grooming and beauty items, apparel, jewelry, pet supplies, green living products and more.
Mother Earth Foods completed extensive renovations in 2015, with the addition of 800 new square feet of retail space and solar roof panels to complement their energy needs.
Owner David Hawkins believes that an educated community will make more healthful and informed choices. Under his direction, the store offers a host of educational outreach activities. His weekly radio show, Highway to Health broadcasts live from on WVNT AM from 9 - 10 AM (Eastern Time) every Wednesday and streams continuously from their website. Dave also provides one-on-one counselling from his Herb Doc Consulting practice, as well as a schedule of live local events known as the Healthy Living Series that are free to the public. Dave’s home, Cedar Land Farm, supports local agriculture through the propagation of Appalachian herbs, managed woodlands and “Beyond Organic” produce.
Mother Earth Foods is dedicated to the total well-being of her customers, and has long been a destination in the Mid-Ohio Valley for those seeking alternative health solutions.
