Produce Product Criteria


Please send all submissions and inquiries by email t o Steve Carlton at

Every item needs to be submitted along with a copy of your current USDA Organic Certificate, including the certifier’s list of approved organic products. The certificate alone is not sufficient for us to approve you as a vendor.

We require a $1,000,000 minimum insurance rider with Natural Grocers listed as the covered party. Please be ready to provide this covered-party certificate as part of the approval process.

We require delivery of the product to our stores. We depend largely on organic distributors such as Albert ’ s, Fresh Pack, and others, since we do not operate our own perishables distribution center. As part of your submission, please present your plan for direct store delivery.

We look forward to working with you. Thanks for submitting your products to us.
