Get your Macaroons at Central Co-Op


Central Co-op is Central Seattle’s most trusted community grocer. Since opening in 1978, we’ve been dedicated to supporting small farmers, local producers and vendors, and sustainability in our product lines. From pantry essentials and earth-friendly household goods, to our rockin’ deli and juice & coffee bar, our full-service grocery has you covered.

We’re passionate about quality and serious about great prices. Our stringent product guidelines ensure that the goods in our store live up to our values. And we keep hearing from shoppers that our prices beat our competitors, something we’re pretty proud of. That being said, we also run initiatives like our Central Basics sales and the Healthy Community Program to add value for our owners and shoppers, and to improve our community’s access to good food. On top of all that, we were the first retailer in Washington with certified-Organic departments. (Currently, our Produce, Bulk, and Meat departments are certified.)


It’s earned our co-op the reputation of being one of the Seattle area’s most respected destinations for ethically produced, healthful foods and products, and up-to-the-minute information about personal and environmental health. We were even voted “Best Grocery Store of 2012” by Seattle Weekly readers. Check out our departments to learn more about them, or come visit us at the store.

Product Guidelines
Our intention is to be the store where you can feel confident that the products you pick from our shelves are ethically sourced and produced in a manner respectful to the earth and its inhabitants. We believe that it is critical that we know where our food comes from, and to verify that the sources are in alignment with the values of our community. See our full Product Guidelines


Our prices are pretty great, if we do say so ourselves. We always endeavor to operate sustainably while offering the best possible value to our shoppers. Still, natural products can be more expensive than those produced with heavy hidden costs like poor personal health and environmental harm. Through our owner benefits, thoughtful pricing programs, and community activities, Central Co-op strives to improve our community’s access to the nutritious, sustainably-produced food it needs.
