Yoke's Fresh Market is an employee-owned Spokane, Washington-based chain of grocery stores founded in 1946 by Marshall and Harriet Yoke. The chain was established by their son Chuck in the 1960s and now encompasses 17 stores in Washington and Idaho, primarily in the Spokane area. In 1990, Chuck sold the chain to the employees. John Bole currently directs company operations.[1]

In recent years, the chain has expanded into the southeastern portion of Washington, with stores in Pasco, Kennewick, West Richland, and Richland.
The Liberty Lake Yoke's opened their doors on March 2, 2016 at the old Safeway/Haggen location.[2]
In September 2016, Yoke's Fresh Market expanded their stores total to 17 by acquiring Trading Company Stores locations in Cheney, Latah Creek (South Spokane), Spokane Valley, and Post Falls.[3]
