If you’re an Everett local, and you haven’t been to the Sno-Isle Natural Foods Co-op, you are missing out. Located in the Public Market building on Grand Avenue, Sno-Isle is the answer for farmer’s market fans those nine months out of the year when the farmer’s market is closed. The Co-Op is a member owned grocery, though you don’t have to be a member to reap the rewards. The store is small but well stocked with natural, organic, and specialty foods and goods. If you make a point to walk down the “natural” aisle at your local grocery store, you need to check out the amazing offerings over at Sno-Isle.
Produce manager, Catherine Brimhall finds the best farms in the area, and keeps the produce department brimming with the natural bounty of local farms. There’s a respect for what’s seasonal and a devotion to organics that’s evident in the selections, from bags of fresh-cut braising greens to stalks of brussels sprouts. Beyond the produce department, they carry the best in natural, organic, and allergen-free brands to fill your shopping basket.
“Sno-Isle Natural Foods Co-op opened on March 3, 1997. The mission was to provide healthy, wholesome foods to the community. Volunteers scraped paint, built walls and installed fixtures. PCC donated much of their equipment from the Everett store. True to this cooperative tradition; we are owned (and built) and operated by the people for the people.
As a cooperative, we are here to make an impact by supporting the community through education and training, philanthropy, and supporting local producers and businesses.
With the cooperation of a supportive membership, a committed Board of Trustees, and dedicated staff and volunteers, Sno-Isle Natural Foods Co-op went from the dream of a few to the reality for us all.” – From their website
