Holiday Shopping Guide for Seattle NorthCountry

Shopping in Seattle NorthCountry is only part of what makes the holidays fun.

Make sure to budget time in your day for lingering over a hot meal or a steaming cup of PNW coffee in the twilit hours of the Northwest winter season.

Support these local businesses while you’re up in our neck of the woods for the holiday season.

For your convenience, we’ve listed our favorite small businesses below along with some gift ideas.


Cheesemonger’s Table | Edmonds

Charcuterie, fine cheeses, and vinegars. Truffle oils. Stick around for a minute and be sure to dine on a delicious baguette smothered in brie and accompanied by a side of their trademark truffle-oil popcorn.

Narrative Coffee | Downtown Everett

Curated selection of coffees from around the world—Africa, South America, etc. They also have chocolates that pair well with selected brews. Whatever your business or pleasure at Narrative, do be sure to get one of their locally-famous salted chocolate chip cookies to go. You won’t regret that decision.

Central Market | Mill Creek

All the foods and food prep gadgets. A large selection of Asian ingredients. Probably the best place to buy a Dutch oven, a jar of lutefisk, a rare bottle of imported craft beer, or whatever is your gifting pleasure.

Peruse the largest selection of sake in the Greater Seattle Area. They also have great deals on rice cookers, imported stationery, etc.
