Fresh products. And fresh thinking.

We’re proud to round up the best local products, maintain an employee-owned business model, and contribute to healthy, thriving communities where we work and live. Because at Yoke’s, those fresh ideas bring real value that benefit our guests, associates and community.


A fresh idea

 In 1946, Marshall and Harriet Yoke opened the very first Yoke’s grocery store. From the beginning, fresh ideas drove innovation and expansion and Yoke’s began offering a “Snack Bar” in 1955 with prepared meals – a novel feature that made Yoke’s the region’s first true supermarket. 

In 1975, sensing a shift in customer spending habits and needs, Chuck Yoke created the first “Warehouse Market” in the area, allowing customers to mark their own items and save money. By adding full-service delis, pharmacies and floral departments, Chuck Yoke also pioneered the “modern” grocery store in the Inland Northwest. 

Yoke’s believed that empowering associates improved their business and community, and in 1990 Chuck Yoke sold the stores to his associates, leading the way for an employee-owned enterprise in the region. 

The “Warehouse Market” model transitioned into the “Fresh Market” approach as we focus on products and departments like our scratch bakeries, locally-sourced produce and premium meat. 

Core value

Our constant core value has been our obsession with community. We are a force for good in the lives of the people who work, shop, partner and share space with us. We believe in common goals that bring mutual growth.

Good neighbor

We take great pride in the communities in which we work and live. That’s why we do our part, as a business and as individuals, to help make them a better place for everyone — like supporting vital organizations and programs such as Second Harvest, Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital, Vanessa Behan Crisis Center and the Christmas Bureau, to name a few.
