Natural Grocers offers 100-percent organic produce, naturally-raised meats (with no antibiotics and no growth promotors ever), 100-percent free-range eggs, 100-percent pasture-based dairy, GMO-free prepackaged bulk products, groceries that don't contain any artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives and more.

"Despite being an agricultural community, we have limited access to organic, fresh produce at affordable prices," said Joplin Mayor Michael Siebert. "The City is thrilled for Natural Grocers to open the doors to 100-percent organic produce, naturally-raised meats and more."

Family-run Natural Grocers was built on the premise that consumers should have access to affordable, high-quality foods and dietary supplements, along with nutrition knowledge to help support their own health.

The Natural Grocers store in Joplin will become the retailer's fifth store in Missouri; other store locations include Columbia, Independence, Liberty and St. Joseph.
