WAUKESHA - The Daily Meal, a website which “produces more culinary content than any other resource,” ranked Good Harvest Market the No. 5 health food store in the United States recently.

Good Harvest, which is the smallest health food location on the 11-store list, is located at 2205 Silvernail Road in Pewaukee.

The article states, “Good Harvest is able to provide the utmost care and attention to its natural products, its impact and its community.”

The store, which was built using recycled materials and many energy-efficient components, specializes in local, organic, sustainable and gluten-free foods. The business, first opening at a different location in 2005, now includes a cafe and various departments.

The article states that “heat from the refrigeration units is used to heat the store, reducing carbon emissions.” Good Harvest also pays for 100 percent renewable energy through the We Energies Energy for Tomorrow program.

In addition to the initiatives made by the store to conserve energy, “no plastic bags have ever been used for packing groceries. Instead, paper or reusable canvas bags are always used.”

The Daily Meal article said Good Harvest is “at the forefront” of the nation’s steadily growing sustainability movement.

Good Harvest was also voted one of the top three best new stores in the country last year by Natural Food Merchandiser magazine.
