The Community Spirit
When the first Nugget Markets opened its doors in 1926, commitment to our neighbors’ well being and to the health of our surrounding communities was at the heart of our company. Today, 89 years later, our devotion to community remains stronger than ever, as Nugget Markets continues to meet people’s needs via non-profit organizations, through corporate sponsorships, our scrip program, fundraiser event participation, and store-level donations.

We love connecting with local families, kids, schools, and children’s organizations. A Nugget Markets store tour is our favorite way of giving kids (and adults!) a fun look at what goes on “behind the scenes” at Nugget Markets.
While traveling the store with your tour guide, your group will visit each department where kids can see how we make our pizzas, our breads, and our hand-crafted sausages, just to name a few stops. Expect some special surprises, too! Our tours are educational, entertaining, interactive, and free of charge.
For more information or to schedule a tour for a school class or organization, please contact your Nugget Markets location for details.
