Commodities Natural Market opened in 1993 in it’s present location in the East Village. The neighborhood has seen some dramatic changes over the past 25 years and we’ve loved growing with it! We’ve watched many of our customers grow up from twenty-something hipsters to, well, older hipsters! We personally lived in the neighborhood for nearly two decades and really, it’s our favorite place to be in New York City. East Village, we love you!

Michael Hughes opened Commodities Natural Market in the East Village neighborhood in New York City in 1993.
