The Only Locally Owned Green Certified Market in Santa Cruz!
Staff of Life Natural Foods, a Santa Cruz Landmark specializing in farm to fork goodness was opened 46 years ago by Richard Josephson and Gary Bascou to address the growing demand for organic produce, natural meats and bulk shopping. From our beginning in 1969 we have grown from a small natural foods bakery into a major natural foods supermarket that has become a Santa Cruz tradition. Our promise to our customer is simply to offer the best products at the best price.
Our Store boasts:
We are located at 1266 Soquel Avenue in Santa Cruz. Our building is certified by the city of Santa Cruz as a Green Building and is outfitted with a clean air system and many energy-efficient implantations such as daylight harvesting. Our parking lot provides electric car charging and is designed with Bios Swales to keep pollutants out of our ocean. In addition we are a Santa Cruz “Clean Ocean Business”. Staff of Life received this recognition for compliance with the City of Santa Cruz Best Management Practices to help protect water and wildlife from pollution.
