Sevananda Natural Foods Market
Sevananda Celebrates Years of Service to Atlanta!! It’s been 43 years since Sevananda Natural Foods Market was founded as a co-op! Sevananda is a Sanskrit term meaning the love or bliss of service, and that’s exactly what Sevananda has been doing since October 1974. Sevananda, Atlanta’s consumer-owned natural foods market, has provided quality whole foods and outstanding community involvement to Atlanta and surrounding cities throughout Georgia, and also provides a natural source of healthy, local, and organic foods. Sevananda has the largest selection of bulk herbs and spices in the Southeast. They also have an Organic Salad Bar and a Hot Bar and Deli. What really makes this gem in Little Five Points unique is the fact that it is a totally Vegan/Vegetarian Market! No meat is sold for human consumption! There are only three strictly vegetarian markets in the U.S. and the other two are on the West Coast. With product sourcing policies more demanding than “regular” grocery stores, Sevananda stands above the rest. No dyes or artificial colors or additives are allowed in the food products sold. Years ago, from its inception, they were in the forefront of the healthy lifestyle movement. Today they are still leading this movement and the organic and non-GMO movements, educating customers and providing healthy choices of food and wellness products. There is a strong vibration of compassion and family. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and happy to assist the shoppers. Being a co-op means that Member/Owners can purchase one equity share in the business and actually have a voice in what goes on at the store by way of voting. To become a co-owner of the largest consumer-owned natural foods market in the Southeast, one full share totals $120, and can be paid in increments of $20 a year for six years. Ownership offers benefits over regular shoppers! Once a month owners get 10% off purchases and the member advantage program offers additional discounts, free entry to member events, and access to a wealth of holistic health food and products. If you’re looking for the best in whole and natural foods, herbs, vitamins and supplements, Sevananda is the right place, selling only the highest quality whole and natural foods. Food integrity is what they live by, and what Sevananda has been all about from the beginning. Find out more about the food integrity difference at Sevananda.
