We are your year-round farmers' market! We stock essential fresh items year-round plus a fantastic array of seasonal products. In any season, you'll find gorgeous, sustainably-grown produce at Central Co-op. Curious about choosing, handling, and preparing? Our knowledgeable staff are here to help.
We also offer House Prepped items to help speed your cooking process, like mirepoix, fajita mix, cabbage slaw, diced onions, yam hashbrowns, shredded beets, zuchini and butternut squash noodles and cut pineapple, cantaloupe and honeydew melon.
About 98% of our produce is certified organic, and the rest is from farmers we know and trust. We maximize freshness by sourcing our produce from local farmers whenver possible. In fact, Central Co-op shoppers spend five times the amount on in-state products that the average conventional supermarket shopper does!
We develop direct relationships with Washington farmers, like Puget Sound Food Hub. Recently Jade Vantreese and Griffin Berger of the Food Hub stopped by Central Co-op to tell us more about their Mount Vernon-based farmer-owned co-op. In the spirit of Cooperative Principle 6: Cooperation Among Cooperatives, we carry a variety of produce from Puget Sound Food Hub’s member farms, and recently added dried apples from Sauk Farm, where Griffin works as Operations Manager.
