Ever'man Natural Foods Co-op
Ever'man Natural Foods was founded in 1973 by a group of people who wanted to have access to wholesome, nutritious food at a reasonable cost. The small group discovered that they could get their essentials such as whole wheat flour at a lower price by pooling their resources and purchasing their foods in bulk. Throughout the years, more and more people joined the cooperative. Our co-op remained a volunteer organization until 15 years ago when Ever'man hired its first paid employees.
In the last 15 years, we have outgrown four locations and are now located in an 11,000 sq. ft. building in the heart of downtown Pensacola. We currently have over 50 employees and serve more than 12,000 active members.
We offer a healthy alternative to what can be found at conventional grocery stores. Because we believe in the importance of wholesome products, our buyers apply a strict philosophy when purchasing everything from vitamins & supplements to chips, baby foods, and dairy products. We strive to buy organic whenever possible and avoid artificial ingredients in all our products.
We have a full-service cafe style deli, including breakfast foods and a smoothie/juice bar. Our produce department is mostly organic and we aim to carry as much local produce as possible. We sell juices, condiments, and frozen foods, but also offer a variety of other services.
Inside of Ever'man, we house a community meeting room which is used for holistic healing, yoga, and other educational seminars. We also have an expansive resource center which includes our Health Notes Kiosk touch-screen computer and well-stocked book, video, and magazine area to aid our customers in their quest for learning.
