Independent of the Month: Herbie’s Natural Foods

Located at 14153 Whittier Blvd, Ste 105 Whittier, California

Herbie’s Natural Foods advocates organic food, health, and “happy living”.

This week we would like to feature Herbie’s Natural Foods as our independent of the month!  Named after one of the first few products they sold back in 1993 (herbs), they now have a huge selection of products.  These include delicious vegan and vegetarian options, non-GMO products, fragrant essential oils, organic foods, and our very own StarLite Cuisine products just to name a few.  In addition to regular groceries, they also have kombucha on tap to quench your thirst!

Their goal is to provide resources and support for their community in a healthy way.  The founder, Marian Workman was a nurse working with cancer patients when she decided to start the store.  One of the main reasons was to improve the availability of healthy herbs, foods, and vitamins to the general public.  The store advocates “sustainable living choices and an organic lifestyle” which we completely agree with!  Herbie’s Natural Foods is located in Whittier, California and is open 7 days a week from 7:30AM-9:00PM!  Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
