Day 20- “At the Corner of Natural and Delicious” New Leaf Community Market

Today’s first: Shopped at New Leaf Community Market.  Wonderful experience – produce, prices, people – overall.

A little bit about New Leaf below these pictures.

 

 

“WITH HIPPIE ROOTS AND FOODIE PALATES, WE WORK TO BRING YOU THE BEST, MOST WHOLESOME FOOD ON THE PLANET.”

Back in the early 80s, founder, Scott Roseman, upgraded a funky co-op to a well-run, community market—offering the Westside of Santa Cruz (and beyond) the healthiest food around. Today, they are seven markets and growing, and as the first B-Corp grocer in California, they continue to raise the bar for food stores everywhere. 

perks:

*New Leaf Juice Bar

*New Leaf Workshops

This place certainly is sustaining its community with nourishment in all forms!!

Side note:

New Leaf Community Markets is the first grocer in California, second in the world, to achieve a B Corporation certification

What is a B Corp? B corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,600 Certified B Corps from 42 countries and over 120 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
