Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage

For over sixty years, we at Natural Grocers have fulfilled our mission of providing free health and nutrition education to our communities, along with affordable healthy food and supplements.

Our growing chain of stores in the Western US offers extensive resources to our customers to help them make the best nutrition decisions to feel healthy and well. Our customers have come to rely on our highly trained staff, in-store literature, nutrition counseling, educational lectures, practitioner referrals, and health fairs to help better understand and respond to their health and wellness issues. 

We offer a selection of over 25,000 natural and organic foods, supplements, body care, and household products, including products to support allergen-free and chemical-sensitive diets. We carry only USDA Certified Organic produce and each of our stores is certified as a USDA organic handler/processor soon after opening. We carefully evaluate every product prior to agreeing to sell it, and we do not offer any food that may contain harmful artificial ingredients. 

And, we try to make everything we sell affordable for the average household. If you appreciate the difference between having a “passion for food” and enjoying an “affordable, nutritious diet”, then you will feel at home with us. Why? Because we are passionate about affordable nutritious food!
