About Us

Nugget Markets Elk Grove store produce and floral department

Produce and floral departments at Nugget Markets, Elk Grove.

Founded in 1926 by William and Mack Stille in Woodland, CA, Nugget Markets has been committed to providing quality products, exceptional service, and lower prices than other conventional grocery stores.

Local products have been in our DNA since the beginning. Mack, always passionate about produce, traveled the western United States seeking the freshest, highest-quality produce available.

Throughout our history, Nugget Markets has helped pioneer many concepts in the grocery industry, including refrigerated produce cases, check stands with takeaway power belts, and a full-service meat department within the store (usually the domain of butcher shops in those days).
