Many visitors to the Tahoe area will notice that Tahoe residents are a healthy bunch of people; most locals participate in several different outdoor sports including hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. New Moon Natural Foods in Truckee and in Tahoe City reflect this healthy lifestyle, and their nice selection of healthy groceries, nutritional supplements and clothing items are also available for visitors to Tahoe.

Their two locations make it easy to get what you want. The Tahoe City location is right on Granlibakken Road just south of the Truckee River and the Truckee location is located on Donner Pass Road, just before Donner Lake. New Moon specializes in 100% organic produce, natural grocery, bulk foods, organic dairy, frozen items and local and regional beer and wine. They also have a healthy lunch kitchen that serves up organic and gluten-free prepared foods and a juice bar where the staff are happy to supply visitors with their recipes. They also supply a load of natural and safe lotions, shampoos, soaps and sunscreens for those sunny winter days.
