About the Harvest Market Kitchen

At the Harvest Market Kitchen, we use the best ingredients available to prepare food that is vibrant, nutritious and delectable. The same high quality ingredients offered for sale on our retail floor are the same ingredients we use in our kitchen: local and organic produce; healthy fats including organic extra virgin olive oil and organic coconut oil; unrefined natural sweeteners including raw local honey and pure maple syrup; and organic whole grains.

Our food is prepared daily in small batches by our expert culinary crew right here in our own kitchen. Being small allows us the control and flexibility needed to be spontaneous, creative and innovative in our offerings. We enjoy responding to the changes of the season, the availability of local produce, and the needs of our customers.

We are seeking a variety of Kitchen Production Team Members from entry level to those with management experience, desire or potential to join our growing team, who can thrive in our fast-paced and supportive environment.

About Harvest Market

Harvest Market provides our community with the highest quality, most nourishing foods and related products available while conducting our business in socially responsible ways that are both sustainable and rewarding for our customers, our employees, our producers and our environment.

Harvest Market was founded in 1995 to provide Hockessin and the surrounding communities with a broad selection of wholesome and nourishing foods, nutritional supplements and related products. Now in our third location, we have expanded to offer one of the region’s best selections of natural foods—or what our great-grandparents simply called “food”. In 2013, we opened the Harvest Market Kitchen which produces a variety of grab-and-go soups, salads, sandwiches, sides, sweets and more—all made from scratch with the same high quality ingredients that we sell in the rest of our store.

Harvest Market’s product guidelines are strict. Like many independently owned natural foods stores we do not sell foods with artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Our emphasis has always been to stock the broadest selection of organically grown foods. Locally produced and Fair Trade products are likewise important to us.

Now that foods produced though trans-species genetic modification (i.e. GMO’s) are ubiquitous in the American food supply, Harvest Market has announced that it will no longer stock new foods containing GMO at-risk ingredients. Additionally, any existing foods containing at-risk ingredients will be eventually phased out as non-GMO alternatives are found.
