Since 1988

High Country History

The history of our store begins in 1988 when the Pickard family bought a small health food store out of a corner of the local grocery store. They sold vitamins, a tiny selection of bulk foods, some grocery items and frozen and cooler goods and not much else.

However, the little store was prosperous and in March 1991 they were able to move into their own location. Nestled in the 49er Shopping Center, High Country Health Foods opened their own doors on April 1st, 1991. After a few months the business grew and in November of 1991, they began serving sandwiches out of a small window in the back wall. Thus, High Country Café was born! The store remained that way until 1994 when the Pickard family acquired the business space next to theirs and expanded their own store. The Café now had its own home, and more space was available for customers to come in and take a seat and dine in.

High Country Health Foods & Café remained in that spot until September 2013 when they relocated to their currant address. With three times the room as before the grocery store is now bursting with colorful Organic produce, fully stocked aisles, and an impressive bulk selection. The Café had gained more workspace and was able to offer more selections for their customers!

Thanks for getting to know us and we can’t wait to see you!

"My family has lived in Mariposa since before I was born and am a regular visitor to our family ranch from Orange County, CA. I can safely say that I come in to High Country literally EVERY DAY when I am in town. I have severe food allergies and I cannot imagine being at my Mariposa home without the quality, healthy, and DELICIOUS food from High Country! We come in for lunch, to shop for every day items, and we look forward to our special favorites that we can only find in your store like your sandwiches, brownies, muffins, and Theresa’s AMAZING PIES! And to top it all off, the staff at High Country Health Foods & Cafe is second to NONE. Always helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. We simply don’t know what we’d do without you all in Mariposa!!"
