Grocery Stores

For a less populated, mostly rural island... we have a number of grocery store options for you. Please keep in mind, every product coming to the island either has to come via the ferry (expensive for semis) or from across the Deception Pass bridge to the north. As a result, food can be a little more expensive here than on the mainland, but often not by that much. 

This list does not include gas station convenience stores as they have their own page. Most of those also offer a small selection of grocery items.

As with the other pages, this listing starts at the Clinton Ferry terminal and travels mostly to the north.
