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!


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.

Best Blueberries
  • Mark LaPierre, of LaPierre Farms in Zillah, Wash., uses everything from falcons to blow-up toys to ensure his berries are the best. They're so good, PCC Natural Markets buys the whole crop.

Kids Market Nights
  • We've come up with a fun way to get kids excited about fruits and veggies, and positively involve them in food shopping choices. Visit Market Night at Bailey Gatzert Elementary school and find out why these kids prefer carrots to candy.

Greenlake Village now open!
  • We've doubled our presence in the Green Lake area by opening a store at Greenlake Village. Evening Magazine pays a visit to check out fast, delicious ideas for a picnic at the lake, including a fresh, whole fruit smoothie. Look out for flying pizza dough!

Tieton cheese
  • Lori and Ruth Babcock left tech careers to pursue farming. Today, this couple's farmstead operation Tieton Farm & Creamery is known for wheels of artisan sheep and goat's milk cheeses. PCC Natural Market's Chef Lynne Vea visits to check out the cheesemaking, and the adorable baby goats. As their slogan says, "happy animals make great cheese!"

Inaba Farms Asparagus
  • Inaba Produce is a third-generation family farm dug into the rich volcanic soil of the Yakima Valley. Many farming practices they use today date back to 1907, when Shukichi Inaba and his brother emigrated from Japan, cleared the land of sagebrush and cultivated crops using techniques from their homeland.

 Mondo & Sons Inc.
  • Mondo & Sons (03:01)

    Mondo & Sons has been thriving family business in the Rainier Valley for more than 80 years. We partner with them to make our exclusive PCC sausages, available fresh in mild or hot Italian. Along with these classics, you'll find modern choices, including a variety of flavors for chicken.

The Rainier Valley Food Bank
  • This bustling food bank in Columbia City serves roughly 11,000 people each month. Check out this lovely video to learn how PCC supports these efforts to feed the hungry, by purchasing bulk pantry staples and hosting volunteer teams to repackage what we've purchased.
