Transform a roast chicken into multiple meals

A roast chicken not only sets the stage for a wonderful meal but also provides the backdrop for a multitude of dishes that can be made using leftovers.


Spring's here

March brings the promise of new growth, warmer days and if we're lucky, maybe even a little sunshine. It's time to start thinking about walks in the park, what you'll grow in your garden this year, and opening your windows to let in a little fresh breeze.

Spring chicken

Our PCC Organic Chicken is raised just a short drive from our stores on farms nestled throughout the Skagit Valley by Draper Valley Farms, based in Mt. Vernon, Wash.


Get fresh with cabbage

There’s no denying that cabbage isn’t the most popular kid in the cruciferous class. But this vegetable packs a lot of nutritional punch and can be prepared in a variety of delicious ways.


In praise of the braise

Braising — carefully browning meat in fat, then cooking it "low and slow" in a small amount of liquid — can coax tenderness and flavor from even the toughest cut.


What's in store

A sampling of the thousands of all-natural items you'll find at your neighborhood PCC. Rid your body of toxins, make way for mangoes, and have a taste of kombucha.

With childhood illnesses and obesity on the rise locally and across the nation, it's vital that our youngest generation makes the connection between what they eat and their health.
