Raley's announced the launch of a new concept store focused on building consumer awareness about where food comes from. Market 5-ONE-5 will embrace the notion that food affects health and conceptualize the ideals of a farmers' market.

The first Market 5-ONE-5 will be located in the R Street neighborhood of Sacramento and will embrace three core values: Organic, Nutrition and Education (ONE).

“I want to go back to the basics and create a store that is reminiscent of a neighborhood corner market but with a focus on nutritious food at a fair value,” said Michael Teel, owner. “Market 5-ONE-5 will be an unpretentious, inclusive and straightforward shopping experience.”

The store will include 11,000 sq. ft. of curated products that strive to meet the highest quality standards, which include minimally processed, organic and sustainably sourced. The idea is to earn the trust of the customers so that they know all options at the store are nutritious.

The store is located in a part of the city known as the Farm to Fork Capital. It will cater to food lovers and offer seasonally prepared cuisine.

Market 5-ONE-5 is set to open in the spring of 2017 and will employ 40 team members at the outset.
