This Portland Supermarket Focuses Largely on Local Organic Fare

 - Dec 10, 2015
Green Zebra is a dynamic Portland supermarket that focuses on carrying locally produced, organic fare. The unique grocery store is well-suited to Portland's boundary-pushing food scene, with fresh markets and food co-ops being the norm.

The locally focused Portland supermarket features a generous hot table section as well as a bulk bar, for which customers can bring their own container. Green Zebra also has a fill-your-own-growler beer bar. Designed by Oregon-based King Retail Solutions, the space features clever local details like bicycles and boasts exposed beams that match the Pacific Northwest rustic charm.

An example of how retail concepts can be storytelling tools, Green Zebra is also a great example of a "fresh" grocer that emphasizes locally available organic fare as a means of promoting sustainability.
