"Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live." -Jim Robin

 

it all started when...

Kimmi, a native Texan, moved to Rockport by way of Washington state after college. She loved her new little city but felt it was lacking in the healthy option department. About five years later, the opportunity arose to create her own nook of health and in September 2011, Coastal Bend Health Foods was born.

The first five years of business have been a genuine joy for all of us involved. With the knowledge we've gathered through education and experience, we decided it was best to evolve into Kimmi's Fine Foods A Heritage Market & Healing Arts Center. We want to stand out amongst all the other businesses that offer options to a healthy lifestyle by offering a fun and educational experience. We want you to think of us as your locally owned market so come on in and get a slice of the goodness. 

who we are...

Kimmi's Fine Foods is a hub for fresh, high quality foods, wellness, community activities and a local gathering place. Located in Rockport's Cultural Arts District, we're on your commute to anywhere! Here we strive for charm and enthusiasm. Our store is run with pride, integrity and lots of laughter and love. We welcome you to browse our fresh organic and local produce, pick out some healthy snacks and gather up your pastured and grass-fed meats. You'll love our high quality supplement section too! We can promise we've done copious amounts of research to ensure we're providing you the best of the best. If we discover some squirrelly ethics, we look for another company that aligns better with our values and welcome any education, as it's our top priority. 

Our amazing little team is always willing to share their knowledge with you. We hope to give our customers the confidence to take their health into their own hands, gathering insight and honing in on their own intuition. If there's something we don't know, we'll be happy to use our many resources to help you get it figured out. While we don't diagnose, we'll discuss your signs and symptoms to get to the root of your health issues. 

We're not just a health food store anymore! Think of us as your local market, where you drift in for high quality spices, meats, cheeses, produce and lots of speciality items. With your support, we'll be able to add a bakery, more prepared foods, community gardens and more! Groovie Smoothie is offering the freshest daily salad and smoothie selection. Working with the highest quality and mostly organic ingredients, you'll never find any added sugars, flavorings or refined foods. Ms. Groovie Smoothie blends with whole foods and always makes homemade salad dressing! She's a perfect addition to our top-notch ethics and standards at Kimmi's Fine Foods. 

Our goal is to help Rockport, Texas and surrounding areas have access to a healthy lifestyle. It's never too late to eat higher quality foods for a higher quality life! There's always room for improvement when it comes to your health!

Where the freshness lives!

Kimmi Moake, NTP
Owner

Kimmi has been interested in health before she knew it was healthy! Growing up, her grandfather taught her how to cook with the entire animal. She incorporates his traditional teachings to get back to her roots and eat the way her ancestors intended...from the earth. Kimmi thinks it's important to know where your food comes from and works endlessly to ensure you're getting the best at her store.

Kimmi became a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and this has been a major turning point in her personal health journey. The education has provided her with more power to heal and understand the basic foundations that need to be balanced. Ask her about hair mineral analysis and other options for taking your health back into your own hands!

From playing with her three four-legged children to experiencing the beautiful surroundings with her husband, Kimmi also has been practicing yoga for 17 years and teaching since 2009. She is currently at Main Street Yoga here in Rockport. She brings this experience to the store, mostly by giving people relaxation and breathing tips. There's always a way to incorporate mindful movement! 

Becky Sanders
Essential Oil Specialist, Manager

Becky came to us in 2014 and we have been counting our blessings since! Becky is passionate about health from her own journey and has been soaking up knowledge like a sponge for years. She is a Certified Health Coach. Completing her education with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, where she learned over 100 dietary theories, with an emphasis on bio-individuality. She understands that there's not a one-size-fits-all diet and lifestyle and has adapted her own as her life has changed. 

Becky's biggest passion involving health is essential oils. As our essential oil guru, she's helped many customers gain some ground physically and emotionally through what Kimmi calls, drops o' joy and gold! 

Becky has run five marathons, countless other races, coached many runners and still runs shorter distances today. She seeks adventure through geocaching, hanging out with her beautiful children and riding the motorcycle anywhere she can go! 

Mary Ulrich, LMT
Massage Therapist

Mary has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1992 and practicing in Texas since 2005. Mary primarily uses three modalities in her massages: Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy and Ortho-Bionomy. Swedish uses long relaxing strokes. Neuromuscular Therapy engages trigger points and soft tissue to relieve pain from injury or overuse. Ortho-Bionomy uses gentle movement and positional release to improve posture by balancing the structure. Currently, Mary isn't taking any new clients (Yes, she's that good!) but please inquire in the store just in case. Every massage therapist needs a arsenal of therapists to back her so please ask us who we recommend. 

Mary enjoys spending time at her property, listening to live music and enjoying the local surroundings. She's up before daybreak, taking her sweet Pancho on his morning walk. She's a welcoming ray of sunshine to Kimmi's Fine Foods and if you're lucky, she just might be available to lead you in the right direction with all the tidbits she's picked up over the years.  

This is a short list of highlighted awesomeness. To see the real deal in all its glory, please come into to shop! We'll see you soon!
