Meet the Owner
Leah Holmes, is the founder and owner of Synergy Foods.
Inspired by her mother, Leah created Synergy Foods in the summer of 2013 to fill a void in the lack of affordable fresh quality produce in under served communities known as food deserts. It was also created from her frustration of having to stifle through wilted fruits and vegetables at local grocery stores in her neighborhood. If Leah wanted fresh quality produce she would travel outside of her area. With that being said, Leah knew that their was a need for someone to provide people living in food desserts with quality fruits and vegetables.
At the time, Leah was living in a 2-flat building with plenty of space. She decided to start hosting pop up produce markets out of her house and in the front yard. She brought out cases of bananas, kale, mushrooms, apples, oranges, grapes, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, and the list goes on. The response from neighbors, family and friends was so overwhelming that it became evident Synergy Foods was needed. This isn’t just a produce mart, Synergy is helping to build the community through food, creating an experience where individuals can build, educate, learn and shop healthy. Synergy's focus is all about providing our customers with great tasting quality fruits and vegetables.
