About Us

Located in downtown Moose Jaw, Alternate Root Organics is Moose Jaw's only locally owned health food store.  Under it's new ownership in 2009 the store has evolved from a modest 1,000 sq feet to just under 6,000 sq feet.


Carrie Richardson is the owner/operator of Alternate Root Organics.  After nearly 13 years working retail in health food stores and 11 years as a Sales Rep in the industry Carrie relocated back to Moose Jaw from Saskatoon to purchase Alternate Root Organics.  


Tara Walz, the Store Manager of Alternate Root Organics, has an extensive background in the natural health industry and is a Certified Iridologist.  Tara has been with the store since 2006 and previously owned her own natural therapy clinic as well as managed other health food stores in Saskatchewan.


In 2013 we expanded to include an in-store bakery where Blair works to create (...) Everything in the bakery is made with organic ingredients and is gluten-free and dairy free.
