As you probably know, we here at Roots are committed to using local ingredients as often as possible. With that in mind, last year we started the tradition of an annual Buy Local Event. This event showcases some of the best local businesses and invites you to sample your way through them in one place.

This year, we are really excited about our lineup of local businesses. Learn more about them as you read on:
Novel Coffee Roasters: obviously, we are huge fans of Novel. This local coffee roaster uses only the finest specialty grade beans and pays careful attention to every step of the importing, sorting, roasting, and packaging process. They are simply the best! Come meet them, try their coffee, and learn more about their coffees.
Melt Ice Creams: first of all, if you haven't been to Melt yet, do yourself a favor and stop reading and head over there right now. They make homemade ice creams using only the best local ingredients and have fun flavors to boast like Tea Time (lavender + earl grey) & Apples n' Oats (oatmeal & apple). They will be sampling and selling scoops at our event this year.
Holy Kombucha: we've been serving up HK on tap since February and everyone loves it! Kombucha is not only low in sugar, but its also super good for you because its loaded with probiotics! HK also gives a percentage of sales to local non-profits, which makes them extra great.
Fox&Otter: these folks make some seriously amazing spicy-sweet pickles! Made locally here in town, these pickles are legit! Stop by and try them or pick up a jar to turn any hum-drum dish into something incredible.
Boopas Bagels: we've been serving up four flavors of Boopas amazing bagels here at the shop for years now! Made fresh every day in Fort Worth, these authentic water bagels are never frozen and dense with deliciousness. Try them out during the event, or pick up a bag.
Roots Juices: no, no direct relation to Roots Coffeehouse, but these guys press some great juices! Each bottle has 3lbs of fruits and veggies! They are local out of Dallas and they are 100% awesome.
