Andrew Koumi opened Green Market Café three years ago in July 2010 with aspirations to provide a place that people could enjoy more than once a week without feeling guilty about eating out. Andrew says, “I wanted to offer fresh food and put a healthy spin on traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Our customers always receive quality food that is delicious and also allows them to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.” Green Market Café has grown into a community favorite and is truly something unique. The two-in-one café and yogurt shop is perfect for people on the go, looking to sit back and have a casual meal or even cater a special event!

Green Market Café is as vibrant as it is fresh! The Café features a large, inviting atmosphere that includes dining both inside and outside on the patio. The food is always guaranteed fresh and all meals are made fresh to order. In order to provide customers with the best quality, all ingredients are hand-selected, delivered daily and meals are made from scratch; you won’t find any prepackaged, full-ofpreservative products at Green Market Café!

The portions are phenomenal at Green Market Café, so make sure you arrive hungry and ready to get your money’s worth. With more than 100 menu items to choose from, everyone will find something they love at Green Market Café. My grandmother Priscilla and I recently visited for a lunch outing and we had tons of leftovers to bring home! She ordered one of Green Market’s specialty grilled flatbreads – the deliciously fresh baked bread was filled with baked baby portabella mushrooms, all-natural baked chicken, tomatoes, gorgonzola cheese and a light mayo spread. She said, “My sandwich was absolutely perfect. It was just what I wanted and more! The gorgonzola cheese paired with the mushrooms was a great marriage of savory flavors.” She told me I must bring her back for lunch again so she can try another delectable sandwich.

I tried a wrap with mushroom and brie – let me tell you, I am a good eater and could only finish half of my wrap. It was the bomb, comprised of the deliciously wrapped all-natural baked chicken combined with baked baby portabella mushrooms, brie cheese, peppers and house dressing! The meal came with a choice of balsamic cucumbers, kettle chips, hummus chips or a cup of soup. We both opted for the balsamic cucumbers, which were crisp and delicately topped with crumbled feta and balsamic vinaigrette. Our lunches even came with a cup of frozen yogurt, which neither of us could turn down! My grandmother enjoyed the delicious vanilla coconut and I sampled Green Market Café’s original flavor Taro, which is a tart berry mixture of frozen deliciousness and the perfect treat to end a fantastically fresh meal!

Green Market Café offers a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Breakfast menu items include fresh, healthy flatbread breakfast sandwiches, fresh fruit options and a complimentary cup of coffee.

Lunch and Dinner choices are all tasty and beautifully crafted. Deliciously fresh soups that are prepared daily will warm you up and are the perfect addition to any meal. Try the butternut squash, tomato basil or one of the seasonal creations, all made piping hot and fresh to order!

The rice bowls at green market Café are made with healthy brown rice and a mixture of fresh vegetables. Try a veggie bowl or if you’re looking for lean healthy protein, the Asian bowl is absolutely delectable with baked chicken, oriental sesame dressing, chow mien noodles, mandarin oranges, almonds, avocado, cucumber and peas tossed in the cucumber wasabi dressing! The rice bowls come in all varieties and flavors to satisfy your hunger.

Grilled Wraps and Flatbreads are both filling and healthy. Every bite surely will be better than the next with a blended medley of fresh ingredients! The wraps and flatbreads are made with whole wheat breads and literally melt in your mouth!

Salads at Green Market café are extraordinary. No dull, limp lettuce here! The Green Market Salad is one of my favorites with mixed greens, topped with onions, mandarin oranges, strawberries, pecans, cranberry raisings, gorgonzola cheese and honey poppy seed dressing! Perfection in a bowl; fresh, healthy and fulfilling to even the most ravenous eater!

Finish your meal with a sweet, yet healthy frozen yogurt treat. There is no reason not to try one because Green Market Café gives all customers a free small yogurt with any sandwich or entrée order.
