In 1986 Mike Stone, the owner of Mollie Stone’s Markets opened the largest Natural Food Store in Northern California at the time, and named it after his late Mother Mollie, who worked in the Grocery industry for 45 years. Our Mission and Values are inspired by all she represented. Like Mollie herself, we strive to “Make a difference in people’s lives through food.”
THE BEST OF
Our first market was in Redwood City, California, and we carried only natural and organic products. We realized that customers wanted a place where they could also get conventional necessities and popular name-brand products. Therefore, the concept of “Best of Both Worlds” was born. This marriage of Necessity & Passion Shopping sets our stores apart from most.
Our roots remain in healthy, natural and specialty foods. Mollie Stone’s Buyers work closely with local producers around the greater Bay Area to bring you high quality products in every aisle. Our goal is to surprise and delight customers. Please tell us if there’s a product that would make your shopping experience more fulfilling.
WE ARE PROUD
TO BE UNION
We pride ourselves on being an employer of choice, and we are proud to partner with local unions to offer better wages, paid time off, physical and mental health benefits, pension plan, as well as career training programs through our local union partnerships. As a local, family owned and operated business, we are grateful to our customers as they support our vision and allow us to care for our employees by making a difference in people’s lives through food.
