Authentically Northwest since 1953.

At PCC, we’re Northwest to the core. That means we prioritize what really matters: people and planet. Every dollar spent at our co-op does more. Because we’re more than a local grocer — our community guides our decisions. And they have for 70 years. Whether you’re a lifelong co-op member or a lunch-break regular, join us in celebrating all that we’ve done together over the decades.

Our co-op through the years.

Local from the ground up.

PCC began as a food-buying club of 15 Seattle families in 1953. And we’ve been ensuring good food nourishes the communities we serve ever since, from helping our hometown’s P-Patch program take root, to supporting the first national organic standards.
