When you need bacon and fresh OJ on a Sunday morning and you're still in your pajama pants, pop over, grab a cart, toss in what you need and checkout before your better half has even finished brewing the coffee!

We're not only a great little neighborhood market, we are your complete grocery store. We have terrific produce with lots of organic choices. Our meat section is stocked with fresh, quality cuts prepared by our own in-house butcher. We are known for our excellent selection of wine and beer. We feature a complete floral department with a fresh selection of gorgeous long lasting bouquets. We are focused on carrying local, organic and fair trade products whenever we can. On top of all that, you will love our deli & coffee shop!

Prime Rib

Simply the Best Prime Rib in Town!

Why does our prime rib roast taste so good? Two reasons:

One, we start with USDA Choice Grade Oregon grown Painted Hills Natural Beef. Because of consistently excellent handling, diet, and stewardship of the land and the animals, these guys always produce some of the best tasting beef in the world, period.

Secondly, our preparation method, though a bit time consuming, makes cooking and serving this roast a snap! The rib bones are removed and all large globs of interior fat are carefully trimmed, leaving just enough to insure lots of great flavor. Ribs are then tied back on so that when the roast is through cooking, simply let it rest for 20-30 minutes, cut the strings, and you’re ready to slice and serve - really easy and soooo good! Also, if desired we will season your roast with our signature blend of fresh herbs, hand chopped garlic, black pepper and kosher salt (costs a little extra). This savory blend is rubbed into every nook and cranny of the roast so that your prime rib will be appropriately salted and seasoned.

Please order ASAP to ensure availability; we can do any size ranging from 2.5 pounds (1 bone) to up to 15 pounds (whole rib - 7 bones).

'Twas the week before Christmas, it was easy to tell,
The scent of fresh garlic, the shoppers could smell;
The rib roasts were trimmed by the butcher with skill,
And these were Painted Hills, many orders he would fill!

Game Day Guacamole


Yes folks, it's that time again! Pete and the boys are getting there game faces back on, and our cooks are up to their shoulder pads in beautiful, ripe, Hass avocados ~ Ah, Football season!

Come on in for some of the freshest, most delicious "guac" you've ever tasted. We will be making it throughout the weekend, but it's best to come get it Saturday or early Sunday, because when it's gone, it's gone or, feel free to call and pre-order. We'll hold it for you in our deli.

Please remember that, because of it's very perishable nature (no preservatives other than fresh squeezed lime), it's best enjoyed the day you purchase.

Go Hawks!! (OK, Huskies too )

Locally Made Cheese and Butter From Golden Glen Creamery

Locally Made Cheese and Butter From Golden Glen Creamery

Just northwest of Mt. Vernon WA, in the town of Bow, there exists a small, healthy herd of Holstein, Guernsey and Jersey cows that are the "ladies of Golden Glen Creamery." The milk given by these lovely ol' gals is what is used to create some of the most delicious cheeses and butters that you'll taste anywhere! If you want butter that is fresh and creamy, cheese that is aged to perfection and big on flavor, and knowing that you're "buying local," come on in to our stores and try some of their all-natural, farmstead products.

Of special interest is their line of Fromage Blancs - A soft, mild cheese often used in place of yogurt and cream cheese. Unlike yogurt, which requires heating to make, the fromage blanc is made at a low tempertaure, preserving the goodness of the milk. Unlike cream cheese, fromage blanc is non-fat and high protein yet still creamy and full of flavor. We are stocking a few flavors, but we do run a "tight inventory" of the fromage blancs in order to keep the product super fresh. Fortunately, the fine folks up the highway bring us a fresh supply on a regular basis, so keep an eye on the cheese case and you're sure to find something to entice you!

Aussie White Cheddar

Cheese Table Feature!

2-year-aged Parmigiano Reggiano
We purchase bulk 80 lb. wheels of this delicious and versatile cheese from Italy. Just a few fine shreds will add a rich, full flavor and touch of class to just about any dish you can think of! For a limited time, we are offering any size chunk you like, “fresh off the wheel”, for 16.99 lb. Enjoy!

Ellenos Greek Yogurt

Local Company Spotlight

ELLENOS GREEK YOGURT - Ken's Market and Marketime are proud to now offer a fantastic Greek yogurt from Ellenos, which is a local company that had a store in the Pike Place Market. They hand craft their yogurt in the heart of Seattle's Georgetown. The flavors in their yogurt are 100% natural fruits and toppings. They also try to use local products whenever possible. We could tell you it's great, but don't take our word for it. Here are a few comments from Ellenos fans on Facebook:

Lisa Gonsalves “This the best yogurt ever!!”

Kim Topp-Cowgill “This is the BEST !!! wish it was in a store near us.”

Deanna Hume-Cheatwood “Lemon curd is my favorite! I can't wait to grab some!!”

Tina Lewis-Cheplic “I LOVE Ellenos! !!!”

Banh Mi Chicken Panini

Try Our New Bánh Mì Chicken Panini

(Greenwood only - coming soon to the brand new Marketime deli along with a whole new sandwich menu!)

Of all the dishes to result from the French influence on the Vietnamese culture, the Bánh Mì sandwich is one of the tastiest. The baguette and mayo may be borrowed from French cuisine, but the addition of jalapenos and cilantro makes this decidedly Vietnamese fare. Our version features an awesome marinated chicken we make in-house, along with our own pickled vegetables & garlic aioli, resulting in layer upon layer of yummy flavors! The early reviews have been fantastic (thank you), so we're going to try and step up our game and offer this one all the time!!
