Grocery? Isn’t the whole place a “grocery store?” Yep. Generally, around here it means all of the packaged products in the middle of the store. And the frozen aisle. And dairy case. And the paper goods and cleaning products. That’s not confusing, is it?

Back in the day when many people lived on farms with gardens and animals raised for fresh foods, the “grocery” store provided the packaged dry goods. 

Grocery departments have expanded to include a lot more stuff than they used to. Our stores are a bit different because we embrace the idea of pure food — natural and organic — in grocery as much we do in other areas of the store. When you shop with us, you won’t find artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, preservatives or those nasty trans fats. We just offer real food, pure and simple.

From bulk foods that give you the benefit of buying whatever quantity you want with minimal packaging to value-priced everyday staples you can’t find anywhere else, our shelves have you covered. And, of course, we carry your favorite ethnic and artisan foods too – all high quality products meeting our strict quality standards.

The same is true of non-food items such as cleaning agents, paper products, even charcoal briquettes. All are as natural as possible, with ingredients that are eco-friendly. Everything on our shelves supports the reputation we’ve carefully built on quality, purity, passion for food and being responsible to our planet, including our selection of private label products designed to save you money while providing the very best in nutrition and flavor.

Hold on, one more point if you please. Our grocery department is also home to a passel of products created for people on special diets. Doesn’t matter if you’re a diabetic, gluten-intolerant or simply choose to follow a strict vegan diet, we have a selection of flavorful products you won’t find anywhere else.

It’s good to be different — good for you and good for the planet.
