Assembly District 76 Small Business of the Year: OB PEOPLE’S ORGANIC FOOD MARKET
Each year the California Small Business Association partners with the California State Assembly to host California Small Business Day. An annual tradition since 2000, each Assemblymember chooses a small business in their district to honor the contributions that small business makes to California.
This year Ocean Beach People’s Organic Food Market was chosen as the 76th Assembly District’s Small Business of the Year. Serving the community since 1972, People’s is unique in that they are San Diego’s only customer-owned grocery store. People’s members manage their co-op through a democratic process, holding quarterly meetings to make the major decisions. People’s specializes in products that are organic, wholesome, minimally processed, vegetarian and environmentally safe. With 6,000 feet of retail space and over 13,500 member/owners People’s is a small business with a lot to offer their customers.
Not just a grocery store, People’s offers meeting space for community meetings, which on any given day may host wellness lectures, live music or cooking classes. There is also a deli/bakery that serves vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner options.
Ocean Beach People’s Organic Food Market offers a healthy alternative to your average grocery store. Stop on by today and check out all they have to offer.
