The Good Food Store has been serving Missoula for almost 45 years. Originally named Mr. Natural’s Good Food Store, GFS opened in the early 70’s with the simple goal of providing the community with quality bulk foods and supporting local food producers. The Good Food Store has evolved in many ways over the years, but the store’s mission remains constant ‚Äúto provide customers with a wide selection of organic food and natural products, conduct business in an ethical and responsible manner, and donate to organizations in need. The Good Food Store features one of the largest bulk departments in the Northwest with more than 800 different items. ¬†Locally Grown¬ù is still a priority to the GFS produce department, which has been consistently voted Missoula’s favorite. The meat department, where customers select form a large selection of sustainably-harvested seafood and naturally- raised meats, was awarded organic certification in 2004 by the Montana Department of Agriculture. Artisan bread and cheese options abound at the Good Food Store, a delicious complement to a hand-picked selection of fine wines and craft beers. Customers can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in the all-natural deli, which features large self-service salad, antipasto and hot bars, an array of house-prepared salads, sandwiches and entrees, plus smoothies and organic espresso drinks at the beverage bar. Indoor and outdoor seating are both available. Cooking classes are regularly scheduled in the GFS demonstration kitchen and classroom, as are free educational lectures by local nutrition and health care professionals.
