Our History

Semilla Natural Foods originally opened as Old Town Natural Foods in historic old town Las Vegas in 1971. With a small budget and no experience Bob Martyn and Jane Lumsden opened with the mission to offer the local community good food at a good price.

Straight from high school they took their passion of natural foods and macrobiotics and created a retail space with large ceramic crocks for bulk food and glass gallon jars for herbs and a limited inventory.

For 10 years they grew steadily and then moved to their present location, a quaint house built in the 1920’s and remodeled to suit their needs. In 1998 Jane became sole owner and in 2002 completed a second renovation. Now we have over 2000 sq. feet of retail space and a unique atmosphere with something new around every corner!
