About Us


Our Story

Established in 1971, the Living Earth Natural Food Market & Deli is family owned and operated.

Shoppers will discover foods and specialty items that are all natural, organic, and environmentally conscious.
Dedicated to providing healthy grocery and wellness shopping options, we select high quality products that are instrumental to living a healthy lifestyle. We know that wholesome food options are important to you and your family. With a knowledgeable in-store team, we are able to offer you access to quality product information as well as educational materials to enhance your shopping experience.

Our Offerings

Gourmet Deli: Stocked with Chef-prepared meals right from our kitchen that are ready to eat on the run or to heat and serve the entire family. That is why we select only the freshest natural ingredients so that your fast food is also healthy, nourishing food.

Organic Produce: Widely known for our large selection of organic and sustainable produce year round, locally sourced during the growing season from small local growers including our own farm in Rutland, MA. We love our local farmer's and we love finding you rare and unique items as well!

Nutrition & Vitamins: Sourcing nutritional supplements that are GMO-free, vegan and make use of natural botanical concentrates and/or food. We look for the least amount of fillers and additives within the highest quality and most natural supplement products.

Bulk Foods: Buy as little or as much as you need. Getting just the right amount keeps food fresh, reduces waste and lessens your carbon footprint.

Grocery, Meat & Seafood: We believe that foods should resemble the whole unprocessed state as much as possible. We offer Chicken, Turkey, Beef, Bison, Lamb, and Pork. All of our meats are responsibly raised, favoring smaller, local, certified producers. We offer 100% grass-fed meat and never sell meat raised with hormones or antibiotics nor feedlot grain-fed beef.  We offer only sustainable seafood careful to never jeopardize the environmental or product integrity.

Fine Wine, Craft Beer & Artisinal Cheeses: Distinct and pocket conscious selection of sustainably produced and biodynamic wines. Choose the perfect beer from innovative craft brewers. Pair with a variety of fine small-batch artisan cheeses sourced locally. Always antibiotic-free and grass-fed, all of our cheeses come from humanely cared for animals that are never given hormones.

Gifts, Jewelry, Local Artists: Unique gifts and home goods, along fair-trade products and locally-curated jewelry and candles.

Pets and Children: We carry brands you know and products we trust from Honest Co., to Annie's Organics. We can't forget the pets in our lives too. You can find Paul Newman products and shampoos made all-naturally for those four-legged children.

Shoppers will find an array of products to accommodate many dietary restrictions and preferences such as gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian products, dairy free, low fat, and low sodium options.
