Grocery Stores:
Big John’s PFI

This specialty imported food store is a ubiquitously revered playground for many food lovers in Seattle. They have just moved to their new location on the northwest corner of Dearborn Street and Rainier Avenue. PFI’s focus is on European imports and inside you can find a generous offering of whole and ground spices, flours, chocolate, oils and fancy tinned fish. And then there is the cheese. PFI arguably has one of the most
impressive line ups our city has to offer, not to mention a selection of imported butter.
