About Us

We provide a wide and ever-growing selection of fresh organic produce, gluten-free foods, a variety of raw foods, supplements, body and baby care and all your household needs.

 

Our grocery department includes organic dairy from a variety of sources such as cow, goat, sheep, and soy/rice/almond alternatives, organic grass-fed meats (with both vegetarian & vegan options as well). We have an ever-growing bulk section with dried fruits and grains, as well as many dry goods and weekly deliveries of fresh-baked bread (including wheat and gluten-free options). We have a selection of Keto products to assist you in transitioning over to a low carb, sugar-free lifestyle.

 

As part of the VIP Program, you will be able to collect points in our supplement area, which is redeemable for FREE products (for information check out VIP Rewards). We strive on locating the very best quality products we can find to benefit your health and wellness. With knowledgeable staff to assist you in finding the product you are looking for, your experience is sure to be a great one. As with all areas of the store, special orders are accepted.

 

In addition to the above, we have a wide selection of organic dried herbs and spices as well as fair trade coffee and tea.
