Blue Hills Natural Food Market
A Healthy Community: Why it Matters to You
At Blue Hills Natural Food Market, we believe that healthy communities begin with healthy people. The ability of individuals to bring good health and strong energy to the lives of those around them is key to strengthening and sustaining communities.
But we also know that the reverse is true: healthy people begin with healthy communities.
Communities with a strong sense of place, where people feel bonded to one another because of a common experience are healthy communities. Communities that promote strong, supportive relationships among its members are healthy communities. Communities with a sense of history and historical preservation are healthy communities.
This list goes on: Communities that support strong education, quality health care, recreation, exercise, dialogue, understanding and protection are healthy communities
At Blue Hills Natural Foods Market we believe strongly in these definitions of a healthy community and what they can do for you as a resident of such a community. Located in downtown Abingdon, Virginia, we feel we are supporting many of the attributes of a healthy community, including the town’s history, common experiences, and strong relationships.
We are dedicated to ongoing efforts to promote our community, its people, its past and its future. We join regularly with other organizations and initiatives to uphold our local economy and its main street commerce, adding, we hope, greatly to an indispensable sense of place and purpose for area residents.
We do all this knowing that beyond selling quality food products to support your health we are supporting an environment that enriches your life. We are proud to do it, because you are more to us than just a customer; you are our neighbor, our friend and our partner in the ongoing quest for a healthier community for all.
