PCC: As Costly As Whole Foods; Not As Pretentious As A Metropolitan Market I dont understand the cult-like dedication to these high-end, unaffordable grocery stores in Seattle. I suppose theyre really nice if you have lots of money, because you price out the "riffraff" from ever sharing the isles with you. But for me, the idea of spending $100 on a small bag of groceries seems absurd. The selection with most products is fine, and they do a good job on stocking quality produce. Meat is a bit too costly; seafood is downright unaffordable. The prepared foods section is kind of offensive, in my opinion. The food is often some bland, whitewashed version of an ethnic dish, sold for at least twice as much as it wouldve cost for you to go to White Center or the ID for the real thing. I wouldnt recommend grabbing your lunches here. Metropolitan Market, the king of overpriced grocers, has a much better prepared foods operation, as much as Id hate to steer you towards a store that charges $7.00 for a ham and cheese on white bread. Its not a horrible store by any means -- I just grow tired of the trend of pricing people out of food. As an upside, they will typically have the bizarre and one-off item youre looking for; like, say: a giant brick of sustainable bees wax! The "Health and Wellness" section is stocked with stuff like that. Their bulk section isnt a nice as the location on 99 (but it beats the pants off of QFC), and their produce is comically unaffordable; but if youre really all-in with the whole "Organic Food" thing, thats the whole point of the store, really. Props for the cooking classes, though. Thats really awesome.
I really wanted to like the food here since there are not much other choices in West Seattle. I prefer soups in Whole Foods to the soup sold here. All flavor are either dull or the soup is too salty. Their mashroom miso soup is horrible ( I even dont know why they name this as Miso soup. Too oily and I cannot taste anything miso but more close to french onion soup with baked tofu in it. ) Same thing in warm food section, tofu scamble only taste like tofu and plane potato. Pizza section is good, and I like the baking goods (most of it) I also like the friendly customer service here. everynoe is nice. So I guess I keep going and start cooking by myself.
Absolutely delicious fresh food from the deli... They know when to stop and not over cook or over do it with to many spices ! Then the healthy selection of seasonal as well as other groceries is excellent. For me taking away all the concern about reading how many additives or marginal ingredients have been added ,gives me peace of mind . Their fresh produce actually tastes like it should! I adore their commitment to the environment, particularly Farmland Trust! What a great grocery store...so accountable an should be a model for others! Thank you board members of PCC and Members! What price is YOUR health worth?

I have a special fondness for Yvonne, the Real Change vendor, whos warmth and good cheer are a part of the great service that I get at this store. I love working with Leslie, my favorite checker, with Carly, my spice maven and with all of the other people who can answer any question that I have. PCC is community!
One of my favorite PCC Natural Markets - West Seattle location. Its not as crowded as the other locations. The produce is always fresh and their breakfast tacos are AMAZING! The staff is very friendly. Theres always plenty of parking available.
PCC is a great market place with delicious organic food. Sometimes it can be on the pricey side but not always. Their fresh food is the best! Pizza is super good and always hot. They also have a great array of hot foods and soups.
Good food. 1 out of 10 employees are kind. The rest act like youre tolerated. No "Hello." "How are you?" "Thank You." "Have a Nice Day!" Disgustingly unnecessarily snobbish. Its food for gods sake - not an elite club!
I love this store and its employees. Always personable, lots of healthy and tasty selections. They always have at least one Vegetarian or Vegan options in hot bar, quite often they will even have vegan pizza available. Yum.
So ridiculously overpriced but if youre into super healthy extremely natural clean eating, this is the place to shop. They have lots of options and great premade food. Decent size with ample parking and friendly employees.
This PCC is a little smaller than the one I have been to in Columbia City but it is also very well organised. There is a smaller hot food section but in general still great selection and wonderful service.
Good selection of quality food products. It is pretty expensive. I think the same food would cost $50 here vs. $30 at Safeway. But like I said, its better quality so thats a trade-off you need to decide!
Very good selection, good people working here, adequate parking, good classes. NOTE: They are closing long term later this year due to property renovation. They should re-open in another year or two.
Great little food co-open with good selection and great, helpful service. Prices are high, but comparable to other co-ops and Whole Foods type markets. Great atmosphere for a shopping experience.
It was very good. But now its closed. I heard it would be reopened once they are done with construction on that plot. Not sure if they will reopen temporarily somewhere else during construction.
love this place! Heathy, organic foods in great variety. Helpful staff, and great hot food. There mac and cheese is the best in the world! prices are reasonable, go here to do all my shopping.
Another wonderful PCC store. Has the wide selection of produce, bulk goods, snacks, meat, wine, and more that most of the bigger stores have. The deli here has a decent number of choices.
Great natural grocer in West Seattle! We stopped by to pick up a few ingredients for a dinner and had a great time picking from their great selection of natural products.
Great neighborhood store with a selection of quality produce, meats, and other staples. Leans towards the granola end of the scale in the best possible way.
Have always loved this old store. Nice layout and they have everything a tricky digestion could want. Always busy, always fresh, and always friendly.
Always a great selection - and a fantastic bulk section. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and always ready to help. Bring your jars to refill!
Great store. Knowledgeable staff and good variety of organic, locally sourced products. I love their hot foods for a quick bite or easy dinner.
This place is wonderful place to stop for fresh produce and quality food. They are closing at the end of the month for a two year renovation.
Went here while visiting Seattle. Prices are good for the area. People were friendly. They also have a nice selection of take away food
Great store that is closing May 31 2017 for 18 months. Good deli section, pizza, and natural food section with big bulk foods area.
Great natural foods selection, though steep prices on many things. Beautiful store and laid out in an easy to understand way.
Go-to for healthy snacks and deli items, always a great selection of vegetarian and vegan foods. We go several times a week.
Great little market for organic & natural foods and products. Their deli serves awesome food too! Best place to get soup
