For this week’s Dot Com Pho, we decided to do something completely different. Instead of going to a Pho restaurant for a hot bowl of noodle, we headed to PCC Natural Markets in Issaquah for the Healthy Living Fair. PCC Natural Markets made a modest beginning as a food buying club consisting of only 15 families in 1953. Since then it has grown in strength and stature and is today the largest consumer-owned natural food co-operative in the United States, with ten locations in the Seattle area.
The Healthy Living Fair allows you to sample great-tasting groceries, organic fruit and deli-made specialties, plus natural health and body care products — all available at PCC. There were 100 different vendors on hand to share information and hand out free samples of more than 600 products, including a pizza made from tofu! If you try to eat everything available, you’ll be a stuffed organic turkey. The Healthy Living Fair at PCC Issaquah runs until tomorrow. It’s a great way to get a healthy free lunch. That is, as long as you don’t over do it and eat everything in the house.
