the family behind pangaea health food market

OWNERS JOE STEVENS, KRISTA NAYLOR AND THEIR RESPECTIVE FAMILIES

Pangaea Naturals first opened its doors in 2003 under original owners Becky Tarditi and Mike Greenblatt.

For two decades, Becky and Mike worked tirelessly to provide the community with high-quality natural and organic foods, supplements and other products. Their passion and dedication established Pangaea as a beloved local business and health-conscious staple in Manahawkin.

 

 

 

Pan·gae·a.

a supercontinent that once included all current land masses, in existence before the continents broke apart during the Triassic and Jurassic periods.

In 2023, after 20 successful years, Becky and Mike decided it was time to pass the torch. They sold Pangaea Naturals to Joe Stevens and Krista Naylor, two Manahawkin residents and long-time friends who were eager to carry on the store’s mission.

Joe and Krista, both former teachers, have spent the last several years raising their respective children, shopping at Pangaea, and acquiring knowledge in health and wellness.

With a passion for nourishing their families during this time, Krista earned a certification as a Plant-Based Chef and Joe studied both the yogic and ayurvedic diet, incorporating what he learned into the meals he prepared for his family.

These two friends, who share similar values, lifestyles and goals, both felt it was time to join the workforce again.

On and off for a few years they brainstormed various business ventures relating to health and food until a divinely orchestrated meeting between Becky and Joe. Joe began working part time in the store and shortly thereafter Becky announced they were going to be selling Pangaea Naturals.

Now under new ownership, Pangaea remains focused on its founding values of providing healthy, sustainable products and sharing knowledge about living a natural lifestyle.

Joe and Krista are committed to nourishing their hometown with natural goods and education and look forward to getting to know all the wonderful members of the Manahawkin community. Although Becky and Mike have moved on, their pioneering spirit lives on through Pangaea Naturals.
