Central Co-op is an independent, member-owned natural foods cooperative, but you don't have to be a member to shop. Come visit us at our home here in the heart of Seattle.
We invite you to share our commitment to products that are ethically-traded and sustainably-produced, and support producers within our local food economy. We offer a wide array of products, with a great selection of organics and foods for special and restricted diets. And consider becoming an owner to receive additional benefits and to become part of the Co-op community. Click here to join!
“Round Up” for Recovery Efforts in the Philippines
Central Co-op is making it simple to donate to recovery efforts in the Philippines! Through a campaign at our check stands, you can Round Up your grocery bill to the nearest dollar and donate the change. We will match the first $500 that is raised in this effort, and funds will be donated through the Cooperative Disaster Recovery Fund. This fund drive is running alongside our continuing Holiday Foodraising Drive Round Up campaign
for local food banks.
