Health Food In The Permian Basin

The oilfield boom is not the only boom in the Permian Basin. The health foods industry is thriving as well.
Midland – The oilfield boom is not the only boom in the Permian Basin. The health foods industry is thriving as well.

"We try to buy as many local Texas products as we possibly can,” said Natural Grocers Manager Belinda Duke. “We have got one product that's really good here, it's our Beanitos, it's made in Austin. They're local, they're delicious, they're black bean chips, so you’re not going to get any added fillers, colors, or anything like that."

Duke said her store had great growth and was one the best performing Natural Grocers stores in the country.

"We have some food allergies, so that's one of the reasons we come here,” said customer Jessie Caruso “We also think that food is really important to a healthy diet, and a healthy lifestyle and there’s a lot of junk that's in a lot of food and this a great alternative where we can come and get something that is better for our bodies."

Some customers have been shopping here since the store opened, and they were also thrilled to see the stores prolific growth.

"Since they first opened and I started shopping here I came in for a few products here and there I have noticed that more and more people are coming to shop here,” said customer Kathleen Scarafile.

"We have been coming here since it opened, we were waiting on them to open our doors, and I think that it’s grown a lot since they first opened,” said customer Jessie Caruso. So it’s been really cool to see how it has grown, it's gotten busier, and to see more people come in."
