Harvest Market (formerly Organic Harvest) is a family-owned grocery retailer specializing in natural and organic foods.

The company was founded in 2005 by Ken Camp and his son Kenny. The original Organic Harvest store, which also features a cafe, is located in the Hoover Village shopping center at 1580 Montgomery Highway in Hoover. Michael Maddox joined the company as CEO and COO in 2016. Jeff Gentry, a partner in Bamawise, is also involved as an investment partner.

In 2018 Organic Harvest announced the opening of two new stores. One in the Caheen Building at 1924-1926 2nd Avenue North in downtown Birmingham and one at The Village at Brock's Gap shopping center in Hoover's Trace Crossings subdivision. That same year the company took over operation of a former Healthy Home Market at the Plaza Midwood shopping center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In 2019 the company announced its name change, along with the acquisition of the Village Market grocery store at 7737 2nd Avenue South in South East Lake from Western Supermarkets.
