Always friendly and helpful. Their deli is incredible. We always get their pumpkin cake and pot pies when we shop as they are the best we've ever had from anywhere. I much prefer Marlene's over PCC and Whole Foods! They have special items you can't find in other natural food stores, like Perfect Food Bars, chestnuts, raw chocolates, etc. Best place to shop in southern Seattle!

Marlene's was a cute find early on after moving to FW, but ever since it expanded to the former REI site it has become a fixture. Downstairs an organic supermarket with everything from produce to pantry goods to cleaning products to supplements, upstairs a natural and very veg-friendly sandwich counter, deli, juice bar and salad bar, plus health & beauty, books, housewares, and even a seminar space. A recognized rare South Sound gem.

Pros: lots of variety. Staff will special order in many cases! Cons: sky-high prices compared to other options. A con for me but maybe not for you: every stupid fad gets pushed if it will sell. Seminars are just sales pitches for providers who are selling stuff.

I have been coming here for years and their deli is exceptional. Always good baked items such as cookies, cakes, breads, many types of smoothies and coffees and pressed juices such as wheat grass, carrots. The deli itself serves up many delicious meals such as grass feed beef lasagna, meat salads, potatoes, burritos but what I love the most is their half-sandwich and soup special. Their soups are to die for - delicious! Especially, around Seattle where there are so many cold and dreary weathered days, it is nice to come in here and get some warm soup with free crackers which are organic too and take a break. The best thing though that I love is that they have non-pasteurized milk or real milk. Did you know the store has to pay an extra insurance to carry this milk? I read this info online. Anyway, we bought this milk for years and it was delicious. Marlenes really has no competition, they are the real thing. Support them!

Over priced and over rated. One slice of pizza costs $4.33 with tax. The crust in not that good...

Three Trees Yoga & Healing Arts Center in Federal Way has offered a variety of yoga classes for all ages and levels of ability for 10 years. During that time, numerous other healing modalities have also found a home there. Here, some of those practitioners describe their work in their own words.

“Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been used for thousands of years to treat disease and restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit. In my practice, I treat each person individually and holistically, designing a treatment plan unique to you.” Robynne Knight, L.Ac., EAMP 206.707.2031

“Reflexology is a Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) modality using gentle and firm pressure on maps of the whole body located on the feet and hands. Found to reduce pain and other symptoms of many ailments, reflexology is also great for health maintenance.

Being new to the Pacific Northwest, I am excited to join Marlene’s to share my knowledge of nutrition and plant-based meal planning as a registered dietitian. I am an advocate for plant-based nutrition and I believe the evidence is clear that plant-based diets help prevent and treat chronic disease, help manage weight and increase energy while being satisfying, sustainable, compassionate, accessible and affordable.....

#Nettle harvesting is enjoying a well-deserved revival in the Pacific Northwest. Commonly known as stinging nettles, this prickly-leaved plant that stings when touched grows well in our region and is sought-after for its ability to relieve #allergies and for its nutritive content: nettle leaves contain the highest plant source of iron. The flavor is similar to spinach.

Before foraging:
• Obtain permission to forage on private land. Many landowners will be happy to let you pick what they consider a noxious weed!
• Wear protective clothing and the heaviest work gloves you can find.
• Pick nettles away from freeway traffic and where they are free of contamination by agricultural pesticides.
• Harvest leaves early in spring, before seed heads appear. Pick the smallest leaves, starting where the second leaves meet the main stem.
• Use nettles as you would spinach and incorporate the leaves into everyday recipes like lasagna, quiche, soups or casseroles!

Here are 2 great #recipes using nettles!

"Delectable Nettle Smoothie"
by Christie Mae Qualey
makes about 1-4 servings

2 cups pure water
3-5 leaves kale (organic)
1 small handful nettles, freshly picked
(use gloves!)
2 large mangos (organic)
1 cup Fuji apple (organic)
1 cup ice

Blend kale and apple.  Add water and part of the mango and blend again briefly.  Add the greens and remaining fruit and ice.

"Creamy Nettle Soup"
by Debra Daniels-Zeller
(serves 4)

1 Tbs coconut or canola oil
1 large onion, diced
1/4 to 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
4 stalks celery, siced
1 head garlic; cloves separated and peeled
4 cups vegetable stock
1 baked potato, skin removed
10 cups nettles, rinsed
1/4 cup light miso
1/4 cup cashew butter
1 lemon, cut into wedges
croutons or grated Parmesan (optional)

Heat a soup pot over medium heat. Add oil, onion and pepper flakes. Stir, reduce heat, cover and sweat the onions until transparent.
Add celery and press garlic cloves into the mixture. Stir and cook for a few minutes. Blend in 3 cups of stock.
Purée the potato into the remaining cup of stock. Add it to the soup. Stir in nettles and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until nettles are tender.
Purée soup, no more than 2 cups at a time in a blender.
Blend in the miso and cashew butter. Return to soup pot and heat gently for a few minutes.
Serve with a lemon wedge and top with croutons or cheese, if desired.
