PCC Natural Markets — including the location in Bothell — recently underwent a name change and is now called PCC Community Markets.

According to a PCC press release, the new name puts the company’s longtime community legacy front and center.

To celebrate the name change, the company will host a PCC Community Fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at its Bothell store, 22621 Bothell Everett Hwy. Throughout the day, there will be fresh food samplings, entertainment and cooking demos.

“Since our modest beginnings as a food buying club, started by a group of Seattle families in 1953, PCC has always been more than just a grocery store,” said PCC CEO Cate Hardy in the release. “As a community-owned co-op, we think about things differently, from our dedication to staff and our deep relationships with local producers, farmers and ranchers; to what makes it onto store shelves; to why we believe cooking food from scratch in each store every day is one of the most important things we do. The ‘why’ behind every decision we make starts with our community, and we want our name to reflect that commitment.”

In addition to the new name, PCC also announced a range of new offerings in its stores.

This fall, the Bothell store will feature a Little Cookbook Library to inspire recipe sharing and cooking from scratch. Customers will also be able to purchase ready-to cook meal kits in which they can mix and match pre-marinated/seasoned proteins and vegetables.
