The Root Cellar


The Root Cellar is retail grocery store in downtown Columbia that features Missouri-raised farm and food products.


Our mission is to support Missouri’s diverse farmers and artisan food producers by providing a high-quality outlet for consumers. The Root Cellar is home to Missouri’s bounty of fresh vegetables, fruit, meats, eggs, dairy, dried goods and canned goods. Our products tell the story of Missouri’s farmers: rice from the Bootheel, bacon and beef from the plains, salad greens from the rolling hills of the Missouri River. In addition, we carry a limited number of fair trade products from outside the state that local food consumers demand. Please visit us online or in person to learn more about the products available through our marketing system.
