Choices Markets is a Vancouver-based supermarket chain that is Western Canada's largest retailer of natural and organic food.

The chain has seven stores: six in Metro Vancouver,[1] including one rice bakery, and one location in Kelowna. Choices was founded in December 1990 by brothers Wayne and Lloyd Lockhart.[2] The owners emphasize that the store caters to a range of diets, including Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. Lockhart cites this is a guiding principle for the chain: "It's all about providing choice.".[3]

The company has relied on various techniques aimed at increasing customer loyalty in order to compete with larger chains in the area, such as providing customers with loyalty cards [4] and providing an in-house nutritionist to help advise customers.
