Elbert’s Natural Foods Market has been a part of the Evansville community for thirteen years. Catherine Elbert-Burkemper (most know her as Charlie) looked high and low for the clean, natural and allergy friendly products that she needed in town, but at the time, these products were hard to find.
She left a quiet job as an accountant to try her hand at entrepreneurship. Her guiding principles were to create a store where all the products were free from artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives. She believed in carrying as many organic items as possible, and strove to sell any clean local items she could find. Due to her own food intolerances, she made a point to stock allergy friendly items and not forget the needs of vegans and vegetarians. Ten years later, the selection has changed, but the basic mission stays the same.
We strive to make it easy to find the healthy clean food that you want instead of burying it alongside low quality junk.
