When I first moved to Olympia, I noticed Haggen and thought, “What’s that?”
Located off the Black Lake Boulevard exit off the 101 at the corner of Cooper Point Road, Haggen is a family-owned 24-hour grocery store with 15 locations in Washington. Haggen has a large produce section, pharmacy, floral, food to go, nursery and more.
If you live in the Olympia area, you’ll receive a Haggen’s flier with the weekly bundle of inserts delivered with your mail. Check out the coupons–we have found more than one deal on things we buy.
The number one thing we buy is Zevia, a zero-calorie soda made with stevia. They also have a good selection of vegan and vegetarian brands that we like including Amy’s and Gardein.
I bought a few really nice looking plants there last summer. They all did well in my yard and the prices were good. Most Haggen stores also sell Christmas trees.
Haggen’s Chef Express offers ready to heat and ready to eat foods. Check out their recipes on their blog.
Haggen is also a ballot drop off location and there’s a library book drop-off bin inside for the Timberland Regional Libraries (in the front of the store just past the customer service counter).
Location: 1313 Cooper Point Road Northwest, Olympia, WA 98502, (360) 754-1428. Typically, they are open 24 hours but they have reduced hours for some holidays. Check their website or call for details.
Today’s weather: On the cold side today and rainy this morning, overcast most of the rest of the day. I did wear sunglasses on the second dog walk because I am stubborn like that. 40°F at 4:30 p.m. but the dampness makes it feel colder, I guess. For me, there’s a big difference between 46/47°F and “feels like 39°F.”
