Ballard’s Natural & Organic Grocery Store

WHY WE LOVE IT HERE

Anchored near a plethora of local breweries, just beneath the hustle and bustle of the bridge, Ballard PCC is a hub for a wide variety of co-op goers. You’ll find commuters grabbing their morning coffee from our organic café, neighborhood regulars saying cheers over made-to-order seafood dishes, and weekend wanderers taking in rooftop views of Salmon Bay with Emerald City Salad in hand.

In true maritime fashion, Ballard PCC features a nautical-themed art installation crafted by local artist, Kyler Martz — a welcoming element of the store. Once you’re inside, you can dig in to our food hall-style market featuring scratch-made stations from the pizzeria to build-your-own grain bowls.

Meet the store director

“I’ve grown up in the Seattle area and have roots in many of the communities where our stores are located. PCC has always been more than a grocery store to those of us who have worked and shopped here — it’s simply a way of life. My goal at PCC is to touch as many people’s lives as possible through the communities we work so hard to build together.”
