Good Local Store/Deli for Organic Food

We've shopped at Marlene's for many years now, and have also eaten at the deli. Things can be a little pricey at Marlene's, but unless you want to drive from Federal Way into Seattle or Tacoma to go to Whole Foods, this is the next best option. As for the deli, they have good food, but it can be... read more

The Marlene's Deli is a fun place for a business lunch, or a girlfriend's brunch for someone you haven't seen in a while..... but the prices are aggressive so don't go unless you have a special reason or you can deduct it from your taxes. This is a great place to go to experience foods you would never have the... More

Marlene's has a good selection of healthy foods for a variety of diets. I particularly shop there for health supplements and natural preventive care items that are hard to find in other stores. Personnel are helpful. It offers special discounts for seniors. The deli serves delicious sandwiches, fresh, quick, good take-out.

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.
