The heritage of Clark’s Nutrition & Natural Foods Market (CNNFMI) can be traced to the early days of mom and pop health food stores. Jim Clark, the company’s founder purchased the first Riverside location in 1972 in downtown Riverside. In those early days, the public often thought of health food stores as a source for date shakes, carrot juice and hippies. However, Jim had a vision that the industry would grow into what is today a 60 billion-dollar industry.
The Riverside store featured a sit down restaurant that was voted one of Riverside’s best in a 1985 Press Enterprise poll. The demand for supplements and natural foods grew so much that the store was soon forced to close the restaurant to make room for them.
