ORGANIC FOOD and PRODUCE
Minglement continues to support the healthy lifestyles and green choices of the people who both live and visit this beautiful Northwest Island. We offer local and organic in-season organic food and produce. We carry local organic, free-range eggs. Here on Vashon Island we are fortunate to have two of the few dairies legally licensed in Washington State to sell raw milk. We are pleased to offer the milk from Kurtwood Farms, delivered daily to our store. We also offer other organic dairy and non-dairy staples and organic juices.
Minglement has been hosting a buyers’ club for a few decades. You can turn in your order on Monday and pick it up on Friday (only). It is an opportunity to purchase organic food, dried goods and toiletries in bulk at a generous discount.

THE SNACK FOODS
We carry some of these wonderful and ‘non-essential’ foods to support unhealthy food cravings which most of us have from time to time except the most virtuous among us. But, for the corrupted, know that they are organic and delicious. Ice cream, delightful sodas, potato chips etc., and all the usual suspects!
We carry the highest quality nutritional oils available. In addition to olive oil, we carry Barleans flax oil freshly pressed when we order it, pumpkin, walnut, hazelnut, sesame, coconut and sunflower oils and the Carlson line of fine fish oils.
The healing power and immune support that mushrooms can provide is well documented. We offer the wisdom of Paul Stamets via the New Chapter line of Mycomedicinals. The quality of medicinal mushrooms is directly linked to the “P-Value” a reference to the genetic integrity of the mushroom. The New Chapter mushrooms are selected from the rainforest and cultured in rigorously controlled laboratory conditions. This produces a growing mushroom mycelium that is absolutely genetically identical with the rainforest mushroom that gave it birth.
VITAMINS - SUPPLEMENTS - HERBS
We offer a full line of nutritional supplements and carefully scrutinize the ingredients selecting only products without genetically modified ingredients, chemicals, or animal products derived from factory-farmed animals.
We agree with New Chapter’s philosophy: nature got it right the first time. That is, nourishment, protection and health that come from a whole food complex-- not from the synthetic vitamins, minerals and chemical herbal isolates you’ll find in most supplements. We are pleased to offer the New Chapter line of products:
- The first full line of whole-food complex vitamins and minerals certified to be made with organic ingredients.
- The first full line of probiotic nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
- The first national brand to deliver a wholly natural, herbal and clinically tested approach to inflammation response.
