New Seasons Market was founded in 1999 by Stan Amy. The company started off with three families and 50 friends for funding their idea to have an organic supermarket that featured foods grown and produced in the Pacific Northwest. The company started off with one local supermarket in the Portland, Oregon, area. By 2008, the company had grown to 9 stores and by 2013, the company had 15 stores and 3,000 employees.
New Seasons Market belongs to the “B Corporations”, in which participating companies donate 10 % of their after tax profits to community projects and organizations. The company acquired New Leaf Community Markets of California in late 2013. New Seasons plans to open 3 additional stores by the end of 2016.
