For over 40 years, Yes! Organic Market has been serving the Washington, DC community. Under the original name, Yes! Food Shop opened on 31st Street in Georgetown in 1970 with a passion for natural living:
“Off the beaten path, there is a little oasis called Yes! A place for people who try to live in harmony with nature, who have a loving concern for what we do and how we do it, and for the earth we share...”
In 1988, Yes! relocated to Cleveland Park and was renamed Yes! Natural Gourmet. It was the first supermarket-style natural foods store in DC and emphasized foods for healthy living instead of concentrating on nutritional supplements. In 1989, Yes! introduced 5¢ off at this location for bringing in your own bags, “going green” a full 20 years before it was mandated by DC law.
Expansion began in 1992 and continued to the current six locations in the District of Columbia and one in Hyattsville, MD. Throughout the years, the focus of Yes! has remained that of a neighborhood market, with each location responsive to the needs of the community it serves through customer service, special product requests, charitable contributions and community support. We remain a locally owned, family operated company and are proud to serve Washington, DC.
