    This is the only place other than a Whole Foods in DC that carries the best vegan candy bar... Buy Jokerz. You'll be happy you did. 😄

    Like everyone said - great selection and helpful staff, but what I like most are the long hours!

    Only place in Seattle one can find Jalisco chips, the most amazing Tortilla chips conceived by man.

    Check your shopping list on your phone before entering. No cell service in most of the store.

    Looking for Madison Market? Look no further! We're one and the same. Central Co-op is Madison Market's original name, and we've reclaimed it as part of our return to our roots.

    You can buy single stalks of celery.

    If going for the deli's hard-boiled eggs, bring an audio book: they are consistently over-cooked and take an eternity to peel without destroying them.

    To avoid crowds, I shop between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m.!

    They have fresh juices - my favorite is the Rabbits Delight with a doubleshoot of wheatgrass

    Skip Trader Joe's and head here for great local produce, tons of bulk items, and truly sustainable shopping. Good fresh juice at café.

    Whatever you don't find at Trader Joe's you'll find it at Madison Market for sure.
