Evening Magazine

In the spring of 2014, Evening Magazine began developing a video series highlighting our community partners and Washington State farmers and food producers. Look for a fresh video every two weeks!

Kale is king at Oxbow Farm
  • All hail kale! Learn more about this popular leafy green and the gorgeous 30-acre organic farm in Carnation that helps supply PCC with lacinato (aka dino) kale. Luke Woodward and Sarah Cassidy are the managers of this farm, which combines rows of delicious vegetables with a native plant nursery and an engaging education department.

Yogurt is trending thanks to this Seattle spot
  • Move over ice cream, there's a new treat in town! This traditional, insanely creamy yogurt has developed a highly cultured following, thanks to its filler-free recipe and seasonal fresh fruit additions like marionberry, rhubarb, passion fruit and lemon curd. One bite of locally made Ellenos yogurt and you'll be hooked.

Seattle Children's garden
  • PCC Chef Lynne Vea meets up with Seattle Children's chef in the hospital's delicious onsite garden. The garden doesn't just grow fresh, organic produce -- it supplies all kinds of opportunities for nutrition education. This year, the garden was the beneficiary of the month-long Families Helping Families program at PCC.

Baking artisan bread at Macrina Bakery
High-tech machine ending waste at stores
  • Created and built in Washington, these fast-acting harvesters liquefy food scraps instantly into odor-free "vegetable soup." The "soup" is then turned into organic liquid fertilizer, so the last generation of vegetables helps grow the next one. Meet the former Microsoft employee who invented this mega-composter, and see one in action at PCC.

Meet the Gouda Goddess Behind Jacobs Creamery Cheese
  • We're proud to offer cultured butter, bloomy-rind cheese and deliciously creamy gouda made by Lisa Jacobs, the dedicated cheesemaker at Jacobs Creamery in Chehalis, Wash. What's the secret ingredient to these great products? She promises it's not unicorn powder.

 Chicken Soup Brigade delivers health in the form of food
  • Lifelong's food and nutrition program Chicken Soup Brigade has been sustaining the sick since 1983, when they began as a service delivering food to those with AIDS. Today, they've expanded to serve a large population of people with chronic illnesses, many of whom have specific dietary requirements for optimum health. We're proud to partner with Chicken Soup Brigade to stock their grocery bags with the fresh, high quality, nutritious food their customers need.

Skagit Valley organic miller loves his daily grind
  • Fairhaven Organic Flour arrives to our co-op grocery store from their co-op flour mill up near Bellingham, Wash. The actual mill (her name is Ruby) has been grinding wholesome grains into fantastic flour for decades. Watch Ruby at work, turning locally grown soft white winter wheat into healthy whole grain flour (it makes outstanding pancakes).

'Bean whispering' with Fidalgo Bay Coffee
  • This Northwest coffee roaster has been around since 1992, and it has a secret: Fidalgo Bay listens to their beans as they roast their small batches. We're proud to be Fidalgo Bay's only retail market in the Puget Sound region — we firmly believe that these beans make a truly great cup of coffee. We also love to slurp it up during official cup tastings!

Seattle Chocolate factory makes Valentine's treats
  • It's a chocolate factory in the middle of Seattle, and you don't need a golden ticket to visit: Theo Chocolate offers regular tours where you can see their bean-to-bar process and taste the final products."Chocolate is beautiful. It's a food that we celebrate with, it's a food that we love, it's a food that we gift one another." said Debra Music, Theo's Chief Marketing Officer. PCC is proud to have been Theo's first wholesale customer.
