Capital Roots expands hours to serve community



Capital Roots' market is open and ready to serve you! In light of COVID-19 and the need for fresh produce, Capital Roots has expanded their hours to 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to better serve the community. You can call ahead 518-274-8685 and one of our staff members will carefully pack your fruits and vegetables and have your order ready when you arrive. We purchase more than half of our food from local farmers too. 

The Urban Grow Center remains open for produce sales. We have altered our processes to ensure the safety of our staff and neighbors, but the market remains open and stocked with fresh local food. We are here for you.

Inside the building we are taking every measure possible to ensure our staff and produce are safe. New sanitizing protocols, disinfecting stations, and a constant flow of good hygiene information are present across the organization, both for staff working within our building and staff working out in the community.

Our Mobile Markets will continue to be out in the community to provide services, but we are altering how we provide them to again maintain the safety of our staff and those utilizing the markets.

We have heard from many of our Healthy Stores partners that they remain open. We are working with them to ensure fresh food remains stocked on their shelves.
