While still roaming around Seattle, I felt fortunate to have noticed this New Seasons Market that was fresh to the Ballard neighborhood.  I can't believe this company is the world's first grocer to earn a B Corporation certification.

Their wildflower rooftop was a sight to behold, which my cell phone sadly could not capture.  So please envision its stunning beauty, directly above this, their indoor/outdoor food and beverage bar.

Their indoor/outdoor food and beverage bar is where they made drinks like this (vegan) matcha tea.  Their smoothies looked amazing, too.

And their indoor/outdoor food and beverage bar is where I enjoyed some gluten-free vegan tostadas (they were delish).  Their Impossible Burger is veg, but not gluten-free, or I would have definitely ordered it.

Once my belly was full, it was safe to shop.  This is a sampling of what they had to offer.  It makes me smile.  (They even have a Michelin Star chef creating in-store seasonal meal kits.)

Fingers crossed that someday soon we'll be packaging food without plastic.

I also adored their cut flowers (giant peonies and roses were around the corner), plus lingering in their makeup aisle (where I indulged in some gluten-free and vegan palettes).  Happiness.

Mindful moment:  What a sweet spot to pause, sip tea, and grab a healthy snack—whether or not a grocery cart is involved.  But if a grocery cart is involved?  Hold on for some fun.
