WAUKESHA — Through tons of community events and wholesome, healthy foods, Good Harvest Market in Waukesha was recognized as Business of the Year by the City of Waukesha Chamber of Commerce last week.

The award recognizes a business for its continued growth and innovation, as well as a happy dose of community involvement. Good Harvest’s mission is “To passionately serve and nourish our community with organic, local and sustainable products.”

Renee Scheer, Good Harvest marketing director, said the company is all about serving the community by hosting community events and serving local goods.

Scheer said they stay connected with customers by bringing them into the store for fun sales and specials, like the PJ Day Sale on Nov. 18 when all customers who wear their pajamas to the store to do their shopping between 6 and 8:30 a.m. can save money on their bill.

“We care about our customers and want to give them the best possible options,” Scheer said.

About 75 people came to the City of Waukesha Chamber of Commerce’s first annual meeting at Carroll University on Oct. 12 for food, a silent raffle and to recognize Good Harvest Market and other award winners.
