Thank you for your interest in submitting a food product to Natural Grocers!

We know your time is valuable; please read through the following information prior to submission.

1. For Produce or Bulk submissions, please use the following pages for instructions:


2. Please review our Standards for the specific applicable category:


3. Please thoroughly review our list of “Things We Won’t Carry and Why”.

We are unable to consider any product that contains any listed ingredients for the specific category. Please note this list is constantly evolving; we reserve the right to decline products for ingredients not yet listed.


4. Please note: we are unable to consider products from multi-level marketing independent distributors.


5. Once above information has been reviewed, please send an email to [email protected] with the following introductory information:

  • Brand status: indicate if the brand is currently carried in our stores, or if the brand is a prospective new submission
  • Brand and product information: Tell us about yourself! Let us know your main brand and/or product highlights. What makes the products stand out in the marketplace? Why are these products an ideal fit for Natural Grocers’ customers?
Note: if a brand is submitting to both a Food and Non-Food category, please keep the submissions in separate emails. (See here for Non-Food submission instructions.) Brands submitting to a subcategory within the Food category are welcome to submit products within the same email; for example, a brand that offers both Grocery and Refrigerated products may send one email submission.
