The second location for Nature’s Food Patch is gearing up to launch in downtown Dunedin. Opening to the public at 8 a.m. Tuesday, the anticipated store at 966 Douglas Ave. features many of the same necessities that the health-minded independent grocer offers at its Clearwater flagship.

Items in stock include organic produce, grass-fed meat, sustainable wines and local craft beer — plus vitamins, body care products and supplements from the wellness department. A fresh juice and smoothie bar, prepared foods like salads and soups, a reverse-osmosis water machine, and organic, fair-trade coffee are among the other highlights.

According to a statement from Nature’s Food Patch Marketing Director Cheryl Rosselle, the store will fill a void in the Dunedin community.

“There has been a lot of excitement building as many Dunedin residents have stated there is a big need for a place to purchase grocery essentials in downtown,” Rosselle said. “We look forward to bringing healthy and organic food to the Dunedin area and have been welcomed with open arms!”

Across the street from Dunedin Brewery on the first floor of the Artisan Apartment Homes building, the new location marks the first expansion effort for Nature’s Food Patch, which was established in Clearwater more than 30 years ago. A grand opening celebration is forthcoming.

The store operates 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

“Whether it’s a place to buy groceries or meet for a meal, we believe this new store will be a perfect fit for locals and visitors to the Dunedin community,” added Rosselle.
