Owner & CEO

Meet Rick Wright

As a family-owned, independent Oregon grocer since 1979, we understand the importance of shopping local and giving back. We started with a single store and have since grown to 11 stores, located in Ashland, Eugene, Corvallis, Bend, Portland and West Linn.

Over the years, we’ve developed deep, meaningful relationships with farmers, ranchers, fisherfolk, and food and beverage producers across our great state. Because we want to see them succeed, we strive to inspire, mentor and assist them, as well as amplify BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and WOMXN entrepreneurs. Together, we form a diverse, forward-thinking food community.

Today, we employ more than 1,400 Oregonians who have the opportunity to grow into highly skilled positions as managers and authentic craftspeople, whose mission is to provide a wide array of choices for every lifestyle. We love what we do.

I encourage you to learn more about our local commitment, community giving, careers and the people of Market of Choice. Stop in, say hello, and see what’s new.
