Cassie Green opened Green Grocer Chicago in 2008 after seeing a major void for organic and sustainable food choices in West Town. Before opening the store, Cassie worked for a decade in the corporate world, yet realized that her passion was in food, particularly in helping to create and further a more sustainable food system. She is extremely passionate about providing excellent customer service and building a community around the idea of better food options. She and her husband/business partner, Gary Stephens, live just down the street from Green Grocer Chicago. When not working on the business, Cassie enjoys cooking, eating, drinking, biking, dancing, reading and playing with their two rambunctious, yet loving dogs!
