Our culture is truly unique. We foster a family-oriented environment where people can be themselves and have fun. Working for Nugget Markets allows me to say, “I GET to go to work” vs. “I have to go to work.” I love this company!
—Jazzmen Simms, Store Director of Nugget Markets, Sacramento Florin Road


Our family culture and positive atmosphere stem from the 5 Core Values that all of our associates embody:

By embracing these Core Values our associates are free to be their genuine selves and create meaningful interactions with guests and each other. Associates have several ways to recognize each other for going above and beyond, from writing a “U Make Us Better” card to nominating them for awards like “Duer” or “Coach of the Month.”

Nugget Markets associates make hard work look easy, so when it’s time to celebrate we go big. Throughout the year, we have teambuilding events and store parties where associate rewards and recognition are part of the celebration. Bag-Off is our annual event where associates from each store compete to see who goes on to represent Nugget Markets at the national Bag-Off championship, as well as which store wins the spirit competition—it’s the biggest event of the year!


Thanks to our amazing team of associates, we have been recognized on FORTUNE’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for the last 17 years!
