Our commitment to providing healthy meals and quick, nutritious solutions ensures that no one has to compromise on quality when it comes to convenience. With our new Toronto location, we are proud to offer a space where the health and wellbeing of our customers are at the heart of everything we do.”

Eat well, live better
Nature’s Emporium’s simple, yet important belief is that when we choose to eat well, we live better—and sleep better, move better, feel better. This is the core principle that the company has built its success on. Through its expansion plan, Nature’s Emporium is aiming to spread its message across Southern Ontario, positioning itself as the go-to, one-stop destination for high-quality, organic produce, healthy to-go meals, natural health and beauty products, eco-friendly household essentials, local brands, and more.
Access to quality foods
Providing the communities it is proud to serve with access to high quality products and organic produce continues to be an important part of Nature’s Emporium’s mandate. Shopping organic can often be costly. To make its selection more accessible to its shoppers, Nature’s Emporium is expanding its private label brand offering to include a wider range of products. Over the coming months, new products under its popular Always Organic and Naturally True brands will be released. Currently, both exclusive lines offer an extensive assortment of items in the fresh, grocery and home cleaning categories.
The grand opening celebration will commence at 10:00 a.m. on September 7th, with a ribbon-cutting and bread-breaking ceremony attended by local dignitaries, community members, and Nature’s Emporium representatives. Customers are invited to celebrate and enjoy exclusive in-store promotions, giveaways, product demonstrations, and samples from some of the Nature’s Emporium’s premium suppliers throughout the day.
About Nature’s Emporium
Nature’s Emporium was founded in 1993 on one core belief: eating well means living better. As a fast-growing and leading health food market with four locations in Ontario (Newmarket, Maple, Burlington, and Woodbridge), Nature’s Emporium plays a very important role in the communities it serves by providing customers with high quality, organic foods, and products that they can trust. The company’s aim is to inspire customers to eat well, so they can live better, and to empower them to make informed decisions about what they choose to put into their bodies. This is why education and information sharing are core pillars of its efforts and, as much as possible, woven into everything Nature’s Emporium creates.
The Nature’s Emporium family has grown a great deal over the years, and the company now calls several communities home, but has managed to stay the same where it counts: in its commitment to real wellness, to providing exceptional service, to giving back to its communities, and to empowering through education.
