We are all very much looking forward to our BONUS DAY SALE next Thursday, 9/29 from 12pm to 8pm!

Time To Stock Up!

One of the things I love most about shopping in bulk is that I can stock up on the items I use most to help avoid frequent trips to the grocery store. And if I'm being really honest, while I am holding tightly to every last warm, sunny day this beautiful PNW summer is willing to give us, I'm also ready to flip the switch to hibernation mode as soon as the weather changes. I want to get my pantry well stocked so when those dark rainy (or snowy!) days are upon us, I'm fully prepared to remain cozily in my house cooking and baking up delicious things like split pea soup, dinner rolls, chili & cornbread, focaccia, lentil dal...

The Future Of Scoop Marketplace

It breaks my heart to say this, but I have made the very difficult decision to close the Scoop Marketplace store this month. After several months of searching for a buyer to keep the shop open, I still have not found anyone who is ready to take this adventure on, and it is time for me to close the doors and give myself a fresh start. I have given this store everything for the last 5 years &  I have learned as much as I could to build and run this business. I have made difficult decisions, and come up with dozens of new ideas to try to make it work. After everything that we've been through, somehow, making the...

Introducing The 1/3 Pledge!

We're coming to you with a fun new project this week, and we cannot wait to get you on board! Our vision for Scoop is that we are able to contribute to building a sustainable future in which everyone can thrive. We believe that package-free grocery shopping is an essential element to our sustainable future, and we recognize that that means we are going to have to change human behavior on a massive level. Think about it: almost everyone goes grocery shopping. In fact, the average person goes to the grocery store 1.6 times a week and in the United States we collectively spend over $700 billion dollars on groceries each year. Just imagine what we could accomplish if a...
