10 Best Seattle Groceries

  • 600 N 34th St, Seattle • Fremont
    Meredith Fife - I love that they carry local vendors!
    Amanda East - We've been PCC members for decades. It's an investment to shop here, but it keeps money in our local economy and in the natural food and wellness businesses. We generally bring cloth bags and stock up on bulk items to reduce packaging waste. You can place bulk orders of products through them if you need more of something and want to save some money on ordering more up front (they offer case discounts). If you don't know about the PCC Farmland Trust program, check them out. You'll feel better shopping here and putting your hard earned money into something this important. They take the cake over TJs, WF, and AmazonFresh any day of the week.
    Monika Mathews - I love PCC! A great local market.

  • 1801 41st Ave E, Seattle • Madison Park
    Omar Shahine - Really dammed convenient. We go here for in between needs as we mainly use Amazon Fresh. Friendly staff.
    Annette Kraus - They have a great wine selection and the produce is always fresher than the bigger stores.
  • 11435 Avondale Rd NE, Redmond
    Ryan Bruss - Lots of grocery options in Redmond, but PCC is the best. We really like their produce!
  • 532 19th Ave E, Seattle
    Flora Ku - I love C&S! Dani and her team are awesome. Coffee and food are amazing. And their catered boxed lunches are a great option for a quick grab and go meal!
    recommended by Javier Soto
  • 13721 Lake City Way NE, Seattle • Lake City
    Ido Ohad - This is where I buy all the Mediterranean food.
    Fresh veggies, fresh (and best) lamb meat you can find.
    And many more good stuff.
    There's also a restaurant upstairs (falafel, Humus etc.)
  • 151 12th Ave, Seattle
    Amy Woidtke - Scoop is the baby of zero waste powerhouse mama Stephanie Lentz. She is on a mission to bring zero waste shopping to the forefront of our modern grocery, home and personal care shopping experience.

    At Scoop, products are sold in bulk. You can also buy containers to put your products in - and they have an online storefront as well. Any packaging used is minimal and recyclable.

    You can buy food, personal care and I think home care products. It's pretty awesome - and they are in process of expanding even bigger!
  • 4545 Fauntleroy Way SW, Seattle • West Seattle
    Marisa Bossen - I love Trader Joe's in general, and have done 85% of my grocery shopping there for at least the past decade, but the West Seattle store deserves a shout-out!

    More than any other Seattle area TJ's that I've been a regular patron of (includes Roosevelt, Ballard, & Queen Anne stores), the employees here go way out of their way to be friendly, helpful, and *actually get to know* their customers. Within months of moving to West Seattle and shopping here, several employees knew my name and/or recognized me and would catch me off-guard while shopping by saying "Hi Marisa! We have a case of dog food in the back for you. Want me to go grab it?" regarding my recurring order of a case of wet dog food. That's right -- for over a year (until it was recently discontinued) they placed a weekly recurring order for me (well, for Kona!) without me having to reorder every time I came in to shop, and they would always happily help me out to the car to load it into my trunk for me, which saved my injury-prone back!

    One of their former employees, who I fortuitously became friends with through an unrelated FB group about a month before the pandemic hit, even went out of her way to ask me (someone she'd known for mere weeks, and only met a handful of times) if I needed anything (when food shortages were occurring in March 2020), and on several occasions secured items for me when the delivery trucks showed up after the store closed, and then DROPPED THEM OFF FOR ME AT MY HOUSE after she had already completed a grueling 8-hour shift, and I live out of her way home from work! *mind blown* (Yes, I reimbursed and even tipped her via PayPal, but the thoughtfulness & kindness cannot be overstated!) This speaks to the character of the people the manager there hires, and it's a huge reason why I am singling out this particular store for my Trader Joe's recommendation, even though I love the company as a whole.

    Also, it's a GREAT place to get inexpensive, but beautiful (and usually healthy) plants! (If the plant dies, you can return it, no questions asked!) Let's just say I developed a houseplant addiction during quarantine because Trader Joe's made it too easy to get new plants every week...
  • 1530 Post Alley, Seattle
    recommended by Patrick O'Donnell
  • 2106 NE 65th St, Seattle
    Tonya Peck - Tierney from The Herbalist was great support to my Mom during her treatment. She provided (by-phone and email) various smoothie recommendations which included tinctures for nausea, energy, tender emotions and so forth.
  • 1410 NW Gilman Blvd Ste B, Issaquah
    Erika Yelle - Gemini Fish Market in Issaquah has the best quality in season seafood around! Small business, local owners, and always source high quality stuff- not as cheap as buying at Costco but worth the price. Their dips and sauces are delicious too!
