Covid-19 has affected our bulk selection. In an effort to reduce touchpoints throughout the store, we are no longer offering bulk foods in shovel-style bins.
Foods that are consumed uncooked, such as nuts, seeds, and snacks, are now found in pre-packed, pre-weighed containers.
Foods that are cooked, such as rice, beans, and lentils, are stored in the self-dispensing gravity bins.
*Martindale’s is not a peanut or gluten-free facility. Foods that are certified gluten or peanut-free at the time of manufacture may come in contact with contaminants in the store.
