For 19 years, the Real Food Company has operated its natural foods store at the corner of Fillmore and Filbert streets, but that could be coming to an end soon. The company’s owners tell the Marina Times that its landlord has reportedly been shopping for a new tenant or buyer and has refused to negotiate a new lease.

The store’s fans include Supervisor Mark Farrell and other Marina residents who appreciate the many organic fresh foods available within. “We will stay positive and enjoy our time serving the Cow Hollow community for as long as we are able to, because my staff and I are counting on our jobs and our legacy to continue to make a difference here,” says Stephanie Hong, CEO and co-owner of Real Foods.

The store has more than 40 employees.
