About Rutabaga's

Rutabagas etc Natural Food Market 

We are your "One Stop Healthy Lifestyle Market".  16 years ago we opened Rutabagas in a small location on Croft Ave. Our store started with three employees and now has grown to almost twenty.  We wanted to serve our community by offering organic natural foods at affordable prices for families. Consuming organic foods and proper supplementation made and are still making a positive change in our lives.  We have grown in size and our healthy living passion continues.  We have helped thousands of residents in Citrus County.  It warms our hearts knowing we are helping our community and the planet by supplying products and sharing our knowledge for your healthy lifestyle. 

Since opening in 2002, Rutabagas has grown from having a small selection of supplements, groceries, produce and a tiny cafe to a 4,400 square foot building.   There is a larger cafe, and wider selection of groceries, produce and supplements.  Rutabagas grew but still offers everyday low prices throughout the store.  Grocery items are priced 10% off retail, and most vitamins are discounted at least 20% off suggested retail price.   We have a large selection of natural groceries.  Gluten free, dairy free and allergy restrictive food products are available for your dietary needs.  We have the freshest organic produce offered at low prices.  Rutabagas has over 7,000 supplements available and in stock.  A wide variety of multi- vitamins, herbs, antioxidants, homeopathic remedies, and other therapeutic blends are available.  Our personal care products such as soaps, make-up, lotions, sunscreens, aluminum-free deodorants, essential oils, shampoos and conditioners are free from chemicals and toxic ingredients.    

You can depend on Rutabagas Cafe to serve freshly made recipes, the way nature intended.  We have paleo, vegan, vegetarian and gluten free ingredient options.  Our meals and baked goods are prepared daily.  The juice and smoothie bar features fresh organic fruits and vegetables.  The juices and smoothies are made to order with optional energy boosters, including protein and powdered greens.  Our sandwich meats and cheeses are free of antibiotics, hormones, gluten, nitrates and nitrites.  Grab & Go meals are always available for your healthy lifestyle on the go.  Check out our menu.
