We’re Local

Our Story

We’re owned by Associated Food Stores, based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. Our company has been in the Utah community for over 77-years. We’re basically the hub for locally-owned, independent grocery stores. In 1940 several grocers decided fight back against large, big-box grocery chains. Rather than giving up, the locally-owend family-run grocers decided to work together to have better buying power and viola—Associated Food Stores was born. We are local—and we haven’t forgotten our roots.

We Love Local

We believe Utah is the best, and has the best of everything you could want or need*. From local produce to local partnerships from 801, 435 and 385 artisans, producers and growers. When you shop Honey Bee Produce Company, you’re supporting local. *Tropical Fruits cannot be grown in Utah – so we find nice folks in other areas to help us out. Although, during the summer months, we work with over 30 Utah-local growers.

Hundreds of Local Products

We have hundreds of local products in-store. From Slide Ridge Honey to Red Button Vintage Creamery. We love local– and source as much local as we possibly can. Here are some of our squad’s favorite #LocalBee items!

Taylor likes our fresh, local mushrooms from Mountain View Mushrooms from Fillmore.
