About Us

We’re Nature’s Emporium - Your Neighbourhood Health Food Market. We first opened our doors more than 25 years ago. Back then, there were just a handful of us with a big dream and a strong desire to do things a little differently. We wanted more for our customers, and our community. We still do. Fortunately, we’ve discovered along the way that many others feel the same. You - our customers - and our growing team continue to help us turn a dream into reality. And, while we may call ourselves a health food market, we like to think that - together -  we’ve built something much, much bigger. If you’re just now discovering us, we’d like to welcome you to our family - and share a little bit about who we are.

We’re Proudly Canadian, Family-Owned and Independent

Nature’s Emporium was founded in 1993 by the D’Addario and Tavernese families, with a mission to introduce and support a healthy lifestyle based on natural and organic foods in our community.

Although our family has grown a great deal over the years, and we now call several communities home, we’ve stayed the same where it counts: in our commitment to real wellness, to providing exceptional service, to giving back to our communities and to empowering through education.

We’re Committed to Real Food

Our stores are dedicated to the simple goodness of real natural and organic foods, vitamins and supplements, whole body and home care.

That’s why our fresh produce is always organic - never conventional. It’s why we offer thousands of vitamins and supplements from the world’s leading brands. It’s why we only offer pure, plant-based health and beauty. It’s why we only share sustainably sourced meat and seafood. It’s why we craft every nourishing meal served on our hot tables and salad bars with love in-store.

With more than 35,000 of the world’s best natural and organic products just waiting to be discovered, we think the truth speaks for itself.

We’re a Community Resource & Gathering Place

We’ve invested in an incredible team that includes naturopaths, homeopaths and dozens of holistic nutritionists that offer complimentary health-focused store-tours. They’re here to help you in your journey along the road to good health.

We’ve also invested in education, creating in-store “Living Room” seminar halls that host cooking classes and special events with internationally celebrated wellness experts. They’re here to help empower you and our team, equipping you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your health.

Whether you’re dealing with a health challenge, or are simply looking to make better food choices for you and your family, you can count on Nature’s to connect you with everything needed to eat well and live better.

We’re Committed to Giving Back

We invest in the health of our communities by partnering with amazing charitable organizations, like Southlake Foundation, through events like the annual Run or Walk for Southlake, Presented by Nature’s Emporium. Since assuming the role of title sponsor of the run in 2012, we’ve helped raise over $1,000,000 in net funds for priority needs at Southlake Regional Hospital. Together with the generosity and support of our community, we’re ensuring that world-class care is always available close to home, ultimately touching the lives of thousands of local patients and their families.

We Owe It All to You

From our humble beginnings in a small 4,000 sq. ft. location more than 25 years ago, to our current homes in Newmarket, Vaughan and Burlington, every step of our growth has been thanks to the incredible support from each of you.

Many of you have been with us since the beginning; some of you are just now getting to know our stores. To the former, we offer special thanks. To the latter, we say: welcome! We think that we’ve built something truly special here, and we’re excited to share it with you.

As we grow, we will keep doing our very best to make good on our mission. And, as always, we encourage you to keep sharing your suggestions and thoughts with us - either in-store or online. You have made this possible, and we look forward to our continued journey together.

Eat well…live better!
