Nori’s first opened its doors in 1989 with a simple mission: to deliver healthy, organic, and locally grown and produced foods to the greater Saranac Lake community. In 2019, we celebrated our 30th birthday. We’ve made a lot of changes over the last three decades, but we remain steadfast in our commitment to nourish mind, body, and spirit with products that are environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.
We are an independent, unique food market joyfully serving natural, organic and local nourishment. We strive to select clean products that are free of artificial sweeteners, colors and preservatives. By working closely with local farms and producers, we are able to support our neighbors and community while presenting beautifully crafted and grown provisions.
Our kitchen is dedicated to serving high quality sustenance for every meal of the day. We enjoy showcasing the unique ingredients we sell in the store.
We endeavor to present a spirited, friendly and wholesome environment for patrons and staff alike. We foster an atmosphere of wellness and professional growth for our employees that translates into a caring and informative experience for our clientele. Our devoted owners and staff are committed to sustaining and enriching our community.
We aspire to create a smaller environmental impact by recycling, reducing and composting all of our organic waste products. This vision translates into both the products we offer and the manner in which we re-purpose the resources we utilize. Nori’s is the community’s destination for procuring key ingredients to North Country living: provisions, conversation, comfort and fun.
From our humble roots as a small storefront in the Masonic Lodge building on Broadway to our move to Main Street in the old Sears building, Nori’s has grown to become a mainstay of the downtown Saranac Lake business community. In 2015, we moved to our new location at the corner of Church and Woodruff streets, with a vision of revitalizing a long-neglected commercial space on the banks of the Saranac River. When you stop by, you’ll see that we’re well on the way to making that vision a reality.
Nori’s is good food, naturally.
