Eat Healthy. Be Healthy • We're Locally Owned, Independently Operated & Certified Green

We offer convenient parking in Alameda’s second largest bioswale lot, and you’ll delight in shopping in our open-air setting that’s always energetic and rarely overcrowded.

We dig real food and good taste. We dig it when it’s fresh, we dig it when it’s local.

Shopping for food products should be easy. You shouldn’t have to read labels looking for undesirable ingredients that are bad for you or the planet.

It’s not what we want, and we’ll never sell it to you. So we’ve done that all that ingredient scouring for you.* By sticking to a very strict buying guideline, we will not carry any product with questionable ingredients or from questionable producers.

Our aim is to only carry food and goods that are as close to nature as can be.

You can shop knowing you will NOT find any of the following in our products throughout the store:
No chemically processed foods
No synthetic ingredients, fillers, sweeteners or additives.
No hydrogenated oil (no trans fats)
No non-organic refined white sugar
No products containing monosodium glutamate (msg)
No chemical food coloring
No chemical preservatives

That means, at a minimum, all of our products will be at least all-natural. It’s our preference and we primarily sell only certified organic goods. We strive to keep the food fresh, locally produced, Non-GMO certified and minimally processed when possible.

*You’ll have to look for allergen info, and nutritional facts as that varies person to person. We do have extensive selections of foods for those with special diets too.

All animal products sold at Alameda Natural Grocery come from producers who are committed to raising their animals in humane standards, and that provide their goods in the way nature intended.

EGGS
Alameda Natural Grocery will only sell eggs from hens raised cage-free and fed on only 100% vegetarian feed. All of our lines of eggs are certified organic, and we have a preference for carrying eggs from locally-owned family farms.

plenty of options
Bunch of good stuff. Produce is fresh, bunch of other good spots in the building, plenty of healthy options, and some stuff you won't find at most other stores. Their supplement game is also perfectly hippie, organic, non-gmo, and on point. They are expensive but you kind of expect that in this sort of store.

sometimes pricey but worth it
I could always find what I am looking for. Favorite finds: raw chocolate with maca and no water tomatoes during the summer. They have a large beauty section. But what I love here the most are their fresh and soft macaroons form the bakery.
