Finding a better exposed location in 1987 on the corner of Johnson and Seymour, the business grew for five years before relocating to 39 W Scott Street in 1993.

The Village Market has grown to offer a variety of inventory built on customer demand and an explosion of new health trends. Our department managers have access to over 200 suppliers, including local vendors, keeping our inventory specialized and continuously updated. This allows for unique and trending products at affordable prices.


The Village Market caters to all types of diets including Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, Gluten-free, Vegan and Vegetarian. We sell only 100% certified organic produce that is sourced locally whenever possible. We have strict standards excluding inventory that may contain high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, MSG, sodium nitrates, preservatives, hormones, antibiotics or GMOs. Our supplement companies are carefully chosen to be reputable with a 100% guarantee on quality of ingredients. Our recently expanded personal care department includes a large selection of essential oils and aromatherapy accessories. Our focus is to stock whatever is in demand, such as a growing selection of CBD and keto products.

In 1980, Jane took a job at GNC but continued to shop at a store in Oshkosh called The Kitchen Korner. After two years with GNC, Jane and Eileen Miller co-founded their own business with the mission “to provide quality food at affordable prices.”  Sun Valley Natural Foods opened its doors on April 4, 1982 on the corner of Arndt & Main Street in Fond du Lac.

A major expansion occurred in 2010 when the Village Market moved from the then 1,500 square foot store to a 10,000 square foot store at 806 S Main Street where they continue to offer smart and wide-ranging products for the customer along with a newly remodeled space for workshops and a monthly newsletter for tips and special values. When Jane looks back she can see she was a bit ahead of her time in Fond du Lac and finds gratification in having grown from one employee in 1982 to over 22 employees now.

The inspiration for Village Market Specialty Foods began in 1972 while the founder, Jane Braun, was pregnant with her second child. Jane well remembers taping to cassette a show on KFIZ radio with host Adelle Davis. She was a popular but controversial author and nutritionist who would pave the way for Dr. Atkins and Dr. Barry Sears, author of “The Zone Diet.” With advice from her book, “Let’s Have Healthy Children,” Jane began taking vitamin E for varicose veins and would no longer need support hose to get out of bed.

In 2000, Jane received a call urging her to purchase the Kitchen Korner Shoppe in Oshkosh because the owner was retiring. Seven years later — after two name changes and a relocation — Jane sold the second store to an employee who now owns five health stores in Wisconsin.
