Wholesome, nutritious food at a reasonable cost is our mission.
A small group of individuals wanted to combine their resources to provide the community with wholesome, nutritious food at a reasonable cost.
To realize this goal, the group started the Ever’man buying club in 1973, with the first official location in a log cabin in Gulf Breeze. Three years later, Ever’man became legally incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in the State of Florida.
Eventually, Ever’man Natural Foods Cooperative, Inc. moved to a storefront location on 12th avenue in Pensacola and remained there for approximately 18 years, until in 1991. At that time we moved to the Quonset hut on 9th avenue.
In early 1999, Ever’man made a 4th move to our current Garden Street location in the heart of downtown Pensacola. The building was a once-vacant 11,000 square-foot tire store which our team transformed into a full service grocer with a deli, community room, and community garden.
In 2013 Ever’man Natural Foods Cooperative, Inc. celebrated 40 years of serving the community by expanding and renovating our store on Garden Street, including the addition of a new community education center, more retail space, and expanded green space. All of this has been a true testament to the power of a community that rallies around wholesome, nutritious, and environmentally conscious living – come see why we’re better than ever!
