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!


Too much fun with Thanksgiving leftovers
  • We have no words for what happened when Jim Dever joined PCC Chef Lynne Vea in the kitchen at our Greenlake Village location. Along with the silliness (is that Jim's impression of Julia Child?), you'll find a great idea to use up all your tasty Thanksgiving leftovers in one fun recipe: a savory cupcake!

Naches Heights Vineyard
  • Winemaker Phil Cline says, "the wine thing was like a mid-life crisis for me" — but we should all be so lucky to have such successful mid-life crises. Naches Heights, one of the highest-elevation grape growers in Washington, grows beautiful biodynamic fruit that makes gorgeous wines. Great fruit, treated right, creates wine that our Wine Guy Jeff Cox calls "a snapshot of this place."

Apples for a cause
  • Take a field trip to the Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetland and experience farm-fresh produce along with a class of preschoolers. Then, learn how our Farm-to-School bagged organic apples support such fantastic programs. Last year's apples generated more than $42,000 for the farm!

Pumpkins take to the skies
  • Mike Shriver's organic pumpkins get a few moments of glorious flight before they're packed into crates and shipped to us to be sold as jack o'lanterns.

    Shriver farms about 40 different organic crops at Rents Due Ranch (the lack of apostrophe on the 's' is deliberate). He's been supplying PCC since the early '90s. According to Shriver, it's a mutually beneficial relationship:

    The varietal of jack o'lantern pumpkins he grows have long, sturdy handles for stems, creating fun opportunities for creative carving. You'll also find his dense, sweet Sugar Pie pumpkins if you're in the mood for pie.

Tieton Cider Works
  • Tieton Cider Works doesn't just press apples into cider — they grow them as well. Craig Campbell is a third-generation Yakima farmer who's been growing apples organically for 25 years. The team turns those apples, along with other fruits like cherries, apricots and pumpkins, into award-winning ciders that pair wonderfully with many foods.

A truck that encourages tastes
  • The smiling faces and honking horns at Redmond's annual 'Big Truck Day' are proof that little kids adore big rigs. But can a brightly painted box truck get kids to adore healthy food? PCC Natural Market's new TasteMobile is a fun way to beat fussy eating. Kids give their tastes a thumbs up or a thumbs down using a simple voting system. The results are tallied, and popular items will get a coveted 'Kid Picks' label at PCC stores.

Make a meal for a family of four for $12
  • Evening Magazine's Jim Dever challenges PCC Chef Lynne Vea to make a healthy meal for a family of four for just $12. Watch Lynne create a delicious meal featuring spaghetti, heirloom tomatoes and green beans.

Carrots from Nash's Organic Produce
  • Over the years he's been farming in the Dungeness River Valley, Nash Huber has grown his operation from 40 acres to 700. His incredibly sweet carrots (picked on demand for PCC) are downright famous, and his crops now include incredible whole grain flours. Nash shares his philosophy on multi-generational sustainability: growing great produce, providing good jobs and protecting organic farmland forever.

Schooner Exact Brewing
  • Meet the family behind Schooner Exact Brewery in South Seattle. Every time you raise a pint of First Session IPA, their exclusive PCC Farmland Trust brew, you save farmland!

Little Eorthe Farm chickens
  • The petite 35-acre Little Eorthe Farm is part of the larger Orting Valley Farms, a PCC Farmland Trust project since 2009. Little Eorthe's 600 hens are free to roam acres of healthy pasture, and it's no surprise that this relaxed, highly nutritious lifestyle results in delicious eggs. We talk to farmer Carrie Little about how she uses the chickens to help clear and fertilize her land while collecting their exceptional eggs. You'll find these eggs at our Seward Park, Issaquah and West Seattle locations.
