The Skagit Valley Food Co-op in downtown Mount Vernon is a member-owned business dedicated to bringing natural, wholesome foods to our community.
Founded in 1973, our mission is to serve members and the community, and we support both a cooperative economy and sustainable agriculture.
You don't need to be a member to shop at the co-op, and anyone is welcome to join. We offer patronage dividends, member specials, and a full calendar of free food & health workshops.
We blog about all sorts of stuff on our website www.skagitfoodcoop.com, including stories about new products, Co+op Deals, our monthly specials, a weekly produce report, Skagit Brew Corner, and In the Kitchen with Jill. You can sign up for our weekly Enews to see to collected posts, or find us on Facebook for plenty of fun photos and information.
At our co-op you'll find a wide array of natural and organic groceries and prepared foods that meet our specific product guidelines. You'll also find many items produced in our own valley. Our certified organic produce department works with local farmers to offer the freshest tastes of the season.
Our upstairs mercantile carries a wide selection of books, kitchen goods, baby gear and toys, and local artisan jewelry and crafts.
Our award-winning Deli is a popular place for friends to meet and families to eat. Come in for a cup of steaming espresso (made with filtered water organic Fair Trade coffee beans that we roast here daily) and a freshly baked maple sour cream muffin (made with organic flour). Our labeling system makes it easy to tell from a glance which fresh soups, salads, and entrees contain dairy, eggs, or meat, and which are Vegan, or Gluten Free. Don't miss our popular focaccia sandwiches, laden with cheese, spreads, and vegetables. Or, perhaps you'd prefer our nitrate-free turkey or ham sandwiches. We've added a line of grilled sandwiches, including Bahn Mi, Oh Hail Caesar, and our Co-op's Own House-made Awesome Sausage Subs. We make over 20 varieties of Co-op sausage, for your grilling pleasure.
We offer a deli express line, outdoor seating, an organic juice and smoothie bar and an updated selection of fine teas, as well as expanded bakery and food bar options, and our own ice-cream, house-made with organic milk from Northwest dairies!
