Joe, Shannon, Steve, & Georgia...the Oats & Barley family & owners. It was out of a love of the Short North community and a passion to health and healthy food options, that the four of us have come together to launch Oats & Barley Market.
Oats & Barley Market is a local grocery store and café with a neighborly spirit. Reminiscent of community markets found throughout Europe that promote healthy choices and daily visits for fresh bread & produce, here you will find a selection of carefully chosen food & beverage products with a heavy focus on providing options that are organic, all-natural, eco-friendly, and/or locally sourced.
The community market has long been a cornerstone of thriving and tight knit communities for ages. Our hope is that Oats & Barley can serve that need that we feel has been missing in the Short North.
Why we’re different:
At Oats & Barley, we consider each other family. Our customers are considered part of our extended family, greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. Just let us know what you are looking for, and we are happy to lend a hand. Not on our shelves? Let us know that too, and we will do our best to start carrying it for you.
Generally, larger grocery stores, such as Kroger and Giant Eagle, work with international suppliers while smaller markets work with both large and smaller suppliers, usually closer to home and can offer products both local and otherwise that would never be provided by larger chains.
With a focus on quality and therefore health, we are committed to sourcing the best products and whenever possible ensure local providers are considered first.
