Nugget Markets price tag with organic lifestyle icon

Your Health,
Your Conscience,
Your Lifestyle.

At Nugget Markets we strive to bring you a wide variety of local and organic products, as well as items suitable for special dietary and lifestyle needs. To assist you while shopping for specific food categories, we have created a series of icons to help you identify these products on our store shelves, in our ads and in our publications.

OrganicOrganic

At Nugget Markets, we are excited to offer our guests a wide variety of organic products.

Products marked with our Organic icon are certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) or Oregon Tilth (OTCO). Products certified by the USDA are either 100% organic themselves, or 95% or more of the ingredients are organic certified.

Many of our chef-prepared and bakery products include organic ingredients. Look for signage that highlights organic ingredients.

Local Local

As a locally owned and operated grocer, Nugget Markets takes great pride in offering our guests top-quality products from local farms and producers.

Products marked with our Local icon are grown or produced by farmers or manufacturers located within a 100-mile radius of our home offices in Yolo County. Our buyers research and verify where products are grown and where our manufacturers produce their product so that you don’t have to.

Many of our chef-prepared items and bakery products contain local ingredients. Look for signage that highlights local ingredients.

California-Grown California Grown

Located in the heartland of California, we strive to carry the very best our state has to offer. Produce, meat, specialty cheese, bulk and dairy items marked with our CA-Grown icon come from growers and producers outside of the 100-mile radius requirement for our Local icon, but within the borders of California.

No Added Sugar No Added Sugar

Our No Added Sugar icon denotes foods and beverages made without added sugars such as granulated sugar, brown sugar, honey, syrups and sugars from concentrated fruit or vegetable juices used as sweeteners.
