Commodities Natural Market opened in Winooski VT in December 2016. The store was the only grocery store in Downtown Winooski on beautiful Winooski Falls Way. The store closed in April 2023 so the owners could focus on the build out of a new and significantly-larger store in Stowe, just down the road from the existing location. Construction began in June 2023.
Michael opened the original Commodities Natural Market in the East Village neighborhood in New York City in 1993. For 25 years, it was one of the highest-rated independently-owned natural food stores in the New York area, according to Zagat Survey, New York Magazine, The Village Voice and The New York Times.
