Harvest Market

For more than 30 years, Harvest Market has been the Mendocino Coast’s premier family-owned, independent grocery store. Harvest Market has always been dedicated to having a positive impact on its 140+ employees, the community and the environment, and the company sought B Corp Certification to formally recognize its commitment to be “the best, naturally.”

The Project

“I had wanted Harvest Market to become a B Corp for over a year, but we weren’t making much progress. Hiring Heather for this project was a great decision — she got us through the certification process in under 5 months, in time for a major trade show! She also provided us a framework for improving our impact over the next two years, which will make re-certification a relative breeze.”
