Kefir in SEA

Just read an article on it, want to try it. Where do I buy it in finished ready to eat form, and where do I go to get the culture to make my own? I'm guessing PCC, but the Chowhounders know all. TIA.

  1. I think PCC and Whole Foods have it in ready to eat form. Other well-stocked groceries may as well.

    1. Trader Joe's (at least the U-district branch) has plain & strawberry kefir, ready to guzzle. The strawberry is OMG yummy, and flies off the shelf regularly.

      1. Yum indeed! I've bought it at PCC and Metropolitan Market in West Seattle, so I assume that other PCC and MM locations would carry it as well. I agree that strawberry is the tastiest flavor, but they're all terrific. Let us know how you like it.

          I got some plain at PCC--love it. It's so expensive though and I want to make my own.

        2. Best Kefir: "Nancy's Kefir" available at Amazon Fresh and QFC. There is none better, or better for you.

          1. the creamery in pike place market, being a dairy specialty store, carries a larger variety of kefir than available elsewhere - as for culture, use an unflavored kefir featuring live cultures and proceed as for yogurt
