Excellent Healthy Food Market & Deli

Marlene's is a unique, not quite one-of-a-kind but really close to it, grocery and deli. Great selection of high quality food. Very good deli with a wide range of food choices. Great for a quick meal in or to take home or back to your hotel.

We were disappointed to find the market at Marlene's to be on the decline - it had been a year since we were last there and were looking forward to shopping at Marlene's to take some hard to locate organic grocery items back home with us. The produce was pretty sad and a lot of the items we had hoped... More

Deli favorite because of all the healthy organic options especially for people with special dietary needs. Cafeteria style but much to choose from in a well organized clean place.

This is right across the street from the Hampton Inn in Federal Way so it was a great place to grab a few snack items. The market is rather small so don't expect a wide selection. I had lunch in the deli located upstairs one day. They have a great salad bar there as well as sandwich offerings. There are... More

Offers a variety of healthy food, personal care and skin care products for the whole family. They have an onsite deli with a good selection of food options to satisfy the snacking urge to a full meal - all organic and fresh. Equal to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's or Earthfare.

Inside and on the second floor of a boutique grocery store, the food items were delicious. I picked out several items including a basil turkey meatloaf, Indian Somosa, and a peach pie to take back to my hotel room. They do have tables there too.

We ate at Marlene's a year ago and purposely sought it out for lunch today after arriving back in town. The food options are intriguing and tasty. I like making my own sandwich but there are also great soups and others items in the case. Shopping around is fun. Organic and nature are the themes of course. I'd highly recommend... More

The food is fresh, the service helpful, etc. Why didn't Marlene's get the top rating? The selection is more limited than other top of the line grocery stores and deli's.

The salad deli bar had a good selection of fixings and the sandwich deli area had a good selection to chose from. They had a good selection of goods.
