Washington Producers

Here at Central Co-op, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to reduce the number of miles your food travels. We source as much of our products from local suppliers as we can, which not only reduces our carbon footprint, it also supports the farmers and entrepreneurs who are expanding our already-vibrant regional food system.

When we use the word “local,” we mean something very specific: farms and companies that are based in the state of Washington. We take great pleasure finding suppliers with a passion for great food and a commitment to making a better world, and we look for opportunities for our shoppers to connect with these inspiring growers and makers.

We are currently in the process of building a list of our Washington suppliers. Watch the list grow!
