Healthy living has become all the rage in recent years. Everywhere you turn, grocery stores are lining their shelves with wholesome products designed to help the average consumer live an above average, body conscious lifestyle. For over 35 yeas, people here in St. Augustine have been going to Diane’s Natural Foods for expert guidance and natural, fresh dining options.
Since acquiring the business in 2009, Jennifer and Alan Stevenson have developed a team of high quality, knowledgeable staff members. With everything from organic skin care products, to natural vitamin supplements, Diane’s is a proven leader in the natural product and service industry. They even have their very own cafe which serves up fresh smoothies and juices as well as mouth watering sandwiches and salads. Everything is homemade and crafted with a natural passion for healthy living. The staff at Diane’s works with local sources for many of their products such as honey, fresh cheeses, and even the St. Augustine famous datil pepper sauce.
Besides serving as a one stop shop for healthy living, Diane’s is also a pillar in the community, donating time and money to local charities like Christian Services Center Food Bank and sponsoring local events like Pink Up The Pace 5K.
Significant growth in recent years demanded that Diane’s move from their original home in Riverside Plaza to a new location on North Ponce de Leon Boulevard. “We want to be St. Augustine’s local source for natural products and to be an informational resource.”, says Jennifer, adding that, “We hope our new location reflects our spirit of community and constant focus on improving the overall customer service experience.”
