The supermarket just launched a new lifestyle shop called "Plant and Plate," which features home, beauty, and gardening goods.

When we think of Whole Foods, we don’t necessarily think of home décor. Sure, overflowing produce sections brimming with bright turnip greens, baskets chock full of guacamole-ready avocados, and neatly stacked clear containers of juicy mango chunks. But chic dinnerware and nourishing skincare products? Not until now.

Whole Foods recently launched a new lifestyle shop called Plant and Plate. For now, the boutique is located inside just one lucky Whole Foods location in New Jersey, and is dedicated to mostly locally-crafted beauty, garden, and home goods rooted in nature, according to a press release.

The concept for the store was originally created by the Northwest regional team, who are currently working on adding Plant and Plate mini-shops to some Whole Foods locations in the New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut area, according to Rachel Malish, a representative from Whole Foods Market Global Public Relations.

As of now, the in-market shop is only at the newly-opened Bridgewater, New Jersey location. So, unless you’re living in the tri-state area, you probably won’t shop the exclusive space quite yet—but there's a chance that Whole Foods could extend the concept to all of their stores.

The first of the Plant and Plate shops features locally-made home decor items such as, pottery by Keiko Inouye, Hedley & Bennett aprons, Beaucycled jewelry, and Apotheke candles.

We can’t get over how stunning the in-store shop is, and are crossing all of our fingers that Whole Foods decides to roll out the addition to all 479 stores nationwide.

Earlier this year, Whole Foods has made headlines when they unveiled a new rewards program with perks for Prime members, expanded their vegan tuna sushi line, and sold the viral vegan BLT sandwich that we made and loved.
