About Us

More than just a grocery store, Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op is a gathering spot and a source for information and inspiration about food and healthy living. Sure, we carry the wide variety of high-quality natural food that you would expect from a Co-op, but we also provide the space for all members of our community to come together.

Always striving to meet the needs of our diverse membership, Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op evolved from humble beginnings as a buying club in 1976 to our current store with more than 6,800 square feet of space which serves over a thousand shoppers seven days a week.

We are very excited about our upcoming expansion, which will add 2,000+ square feet of retail space for a deli, food-to-go, and greatly expanded seating.

We love our community and work every day to be a leader in creating a vibrant, healthy Ukiah!
