Our 5 Favorite Independent Grow Stores in Massachusetts

Rootdown Hydroponics


Right outside Boston is Rootdown Hydroponics, which prides itself on being a “LOCAL 100% woman owned business.” The shop opened in 2010 and has since become a favorite for everything indoor grow. But like most favorite grow stores, it’s less about what Rootdown sells than what extras the shop has to offer. In addition to selling everything you need to start a quality indoor grow, Rootdown offers classes on cultivation and other related skills. Newcomers can even take a free intro class before committing to a full course. It’s a great option for folks who may be curious about growing cannabis but are unsure how to get started.

Rootdown Hydroponics has an incredibly dedicated customer base. Whether that’s due to the store’s monthly specials, its knowledgeable in-house staff, or the personal charm of owner Sabrina, it’s worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Emerald City also has great return and replacement policies, which can be a big help for newer growers just starting out. It’s also a great source for advice.
