Quality Matters. Local Matters. Health Matters.

We are a community oriented market and cafe where food matters. We work hard to support local producers and sell healthy food grown in the region. We believe in helping our area’s economy and preserving our natural resources. Quality Matters, Local Matters, Health Matters, People and Food Matter…We are different.

At Food Matters Market & Cafe, we’re dedicated to providing our customers with quality natural and organic foods. With three stores located in Brevard, Hickory and Morganton, North Carolina, we are working to expand into smaller markets not served by larger health food chains. We believe everyone should have healthy eating choices.

We source fresh, local meats, seafood, produce, dairy, eggs and honey from multiple farms in the region. We also have a great selection of healthy lunch items in our Cafe (soups/salads/rice bowls/ made-to-order sandwiches with natural cheeses and meats that are antibiotic & hormone free, and contain NO preservatives, artificial ingredients, MSG, nitrates or nitrites and are certified gluten-free). Or enjoy freshly made meals in our Grab ‘n’ Go section and choose from a healthy selection of beverages.

We offer an extensive natural health/vitamin/nutritional supplement section, bulk items, Non-GMO and gluten-free foods, and a truly amazing selection of beers and wines, many crafted locally!
