It’s Market Monday and we are nuts about it! Peanut Butter is an essential for many families for school lunches and back to work. This week’s feature is one of our favorites!
We are always amazed at the stories that business owners share about the passion and love for their products. Radhika Murari, founder of OmMade Peanut Butter, was a motivated mother eager to find a better way to fuel her son’s sports lifestyle diet. Unable to find a healthy option that also matched her son’s preferences, she began creating peanut butter recipes at home. At a fundraiser one day, someone told her how amazing her peanut butter was. Eventually, Radhika began selling her product at the local farmer’s market in Fairfax, Virginia and now she is featured on platforms like The Today Show, NBC, Food & Wine, and many more. Her story is a truly inspiring one and proof that nothing can stop a determined mother!
Why do we love them?
It’s no secret that there are a lot of processed foods in the United States. As farmers, we are passionate about choosing products to sell in our market that uphold the importance of natural food and are created without all of the extra “add ins”. The problem with most peanut butters sold in stores today is that they contain added oils, conventional flavoring, and added sugars. OmMade is created by using Virginia peanuts that are roasted and salted. There are no added oils. Another great thing about OmMade is that all of their unique flavors are gluten free and vegan. Did you know that using peanuts even helps the environment? Now that is something we are excited to support!
