Morrow Café and Market Making a Sustainable Difference throughout the Community


MORROW, Ohio - Nominated for best breakfast in Warren County, Fresh to Morrow, located at 121 Main Street in Morrow, Ohio, is re-vitalizing the community it serves with its organic food, local artisans, and live singers. From farm to table, the family owned café and market is captivating audiences from around the county. The café and market is open Thursday through Sunday with varying hours of 5pm to 8pm on Thursdays, 9am to 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 9am to 2pm on Sundays. Monday through Wednesday, the family is ensuring preparedness and freshness of produce by planting and harvesting crops that will be brought and served in the dining area during the following days.

Ryan and Megan's Story

In 2009, Ryan and Megan founded Urban Greens LLC on the east side of Cincinnati. Through their Community Supported Agriculture program, they hired individuals and taught them to sustainably farm. In 2018, Ryan and Megan moved to the Village of Morrow. A year later, Camp Kern leased land to them where they currently grow and harvest their produce spanning over ten acres; it was here that Fresh to Morrow was birthed out of Ryan and Megan's desire and faith-based mission to feed, educate, and promote the Morrow community. Their first official sales were made by grab and go sales from the Morrow Arts Center. Thereafter, their market officially moved to the back of the Main Street building on the Little Miami Bike Trail in 2021 where they continued to sell produce. 

In July 2022, Brad and Maria Wolfe joined the ownership team of Fresh to Morrow and helped purchase the 3,000 square foot building. Together, they spent many months renovating the building to make it both a shopping and dining hotspot.

Ryan currently leads classes on how to farm and build sustainable, organic produce. By providing a clean diet and education for the community, one of Ryan and Megan's visions for Fresh to Morrow is to encourage the development of downtown Morrow into a thriving entertainment district. 

Their Story Lived out

Ryan and Megan's mission of investing in the Morrow community is demonstrated by their active highlighting of local businesses. While the store is open, the community is offered grab and go fresh produce ranging from local honey, veggies, jams, and baked goods to products such as organic skin care and locally made pottery and paintings. 

Fresh to Morrow offers an eclectic dine-in experience unique to the area. With potted plants hanging in the sunlit entrances and tables with their own charming personalities, guests are sure to have memorable experiences with friends and family far and wide.

Community breakfast favorites served all day include The Irish, Farmer's Omelet, and the Traditional. For lunch or dinner, popular plates include the Hillbilly Hibachi Stir-fry and the Chicken Salad. Fresh to Morrow partners with bakers from Morrow and Blanchester along with meat and egg farmers from the surrounding area. The café offers seasonal specials throughout the month along with made from scratch desserts and pastries. "All food is made fresh and organic without sprays. We provide healthy, local, flavorful food at a reasonable price," says Ryan.

Fresh to Morrow affords the community with rest and relaxation. Guests can partake in community open mic nights Fridays from 6pm to 8pm hosted by Mason Adams. Thereafter, on Saturday evenings, guests can return for live music performed by professional local musicians and singers from 6pm to 8pm. 

Community Night

As part of their faith, Ryan and Megan give back to the community by ensuring no Morrow resident goes hungry. Every Wednesday evening from 6pm to 8pm Ryan and Megan open the doors of their café to those who are in need of a meal and serve them extra food from the prior weekend. This also ensures no food goes to waste. "Wednesday night is a chance for us  to give back to the community through fellowship with one another," says Ryan.
