Our Story

At Huckleberry’s Natural Market, we’ve been keeping it local since 1996.

It all started in October when Rosauers Supermarkets purchased a small South Hill grocery store called the Monroe Street Market. It was at that time we converted this small grocery store to what it is today: Huckleberry’s Natural Market, Spokane’s FIRST natural and organic grocery store.

We envisioned customers being able to shop fully at our store picking from organic produce, seafood, meats, dairy products, and pre-packaged foods, to health, beauty and wellness items that are also clean, animal cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced. The store instantly became a landmark for the surrounding neighborhoods; a meeting place where people could get together for LOCAL coffee, LOCAL baked goods, scratch-made bistro food, and some great conversation with fellow neighbors.

Today we have evolved and grown as organic, non-GMO, and local food have become more important than ever before to our community, and to us. Therefore we only offer food that is either made with CLEAN ingredients, organic or non-GMO ingredients, and/or LOCALLY MADE. When determining whether or not to carry items in our store, we scour the ingredients, look up the company history, and manufacturing processes, and ensure that we can fully stand behind the product we are selling. Animal welfare is immensely important to us when choosing health and beauty products, as well as where the company has sourced its ingredients.

We are proud to say that we are the FIRST in Spokane to offer ALL NON-GMO CHICKEN in our Meat Department and Bistro. Not only do we have local grass-fed beef from Idaho, and Country Natural Beef from Oregon, but we now offer OREGON COUNTRY CERTIFIED NON-GMO BEEF! Being able to offer clean and healthy food and wellness items to our customers is of the utmost importance, and it will continue to be.

Since the opening of the original Huckleberry’s in 1996 we’ve opened 17 additional “store within a store” concepts, all operating as a department within a Rosauers or Super 1 Foods store.  Our satellite departments are in all 4 Pacific Northwest states: Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon. We adhere to the same standards within our departments as we do at our South Monroe flagship store. We strive to be a community partner and resource, and we’ll continue to do that in all of the markets we reside within.

Today, Huckleberry’s is a well-known and respected part of the Spokane business community. A grocery store that stands above the rest by replacing modern gimmicks, club cards, and attitude, with old-fashioned quality, service, and warmth.

Community Partnerships

We’ve been an active partner with several local charities and organizations in Spokane since the beginning. Not only do we participate, donate, and facilitate in order to help, but we’re always looking for new ways to be involved. More recently we have made the move to support renewable energy through the participation in Avista’s Community Solar Program. We subscribe to 2.2 kW (8 panel maximum) of the 423 kW (1,512 panels) community solar array. The solar array is located on Barker Road in Spokane Valley on four acres and is comprised of 1,512 ITEK Energy solar panels and 54 Solectria inverters, all manufactured in the state of Washington.

So of course Rosauers and Huckleberry’s Natural Markets have bought in! We believe in doing our part. Learn more here.
