Fresher than Fresh

Lettuce grown 3 miles away. World famous Skagit strawberries from just down the road. Saying hello to a friendly farmer as you shop—like an everyday farmers market. Our produce is as fresh and local as it gets, and you can taste the difference. At the Co-op, we bring farmstand flavor to you, and local is always in season.

Meet Our Local Farmers

Say it with us: local farmers rock! The Co-op works with dozens of local farmers to bring you fresh, organic produce straight from the farm, every. single. day. They work hard to grow food the right way because it’s their passion, and because it’s the right thing to do.

The Best Pick: Organic Produce

As the first produce department in Skagit County to be Certified Organic, we’ve been leading the charge in organics since 1973 because we believe healthy food matters, and so does the way it’s grown. Choosing organic protects people, pollinators, and this beautiful place we call home. You’ll find nearly 200 organic fruits and vegetables in the Co-op each and every day, so you can make choices you feel good about.

Free Fruit for Kiddos

We’re not monkeying around! Kids ten and under get a free piece of organic fruit at every visit with Co-op banana cards. We want kids to experience a real fruity snack while you shop: just have your littles pick out an apple, orange, pear, or banana and then show their banana card at checkout. Easy-peasy, and always free. You can ask any staff person to give your little Co-op shopper a banana card.

Pick of the Week: Local Bunched Radishes

Fresh radishes from Long Hearing, Rabbit Fields, and Well Fed Farms are here! Crunchy and mild, these little beauties are the perfect addition to spring salads, atop tacos, or right out of hand. Or, try a quick pickle with sugar, salt, vinegar, and water.

Sweet, Sweet Spring

Let the season begin! Rhubarb from Ralph's Greenhouse is in season now for spring! Although technically a vegetable, most people use the pretty pink stalks as a fruit. Try it as a filling for pies, crisps, cobblers, and tarts or baking it in to a coffee cake.
