Plant-based Grocery Shopping Tips
Stick to the perimeter of the store
This is where most of the fresh produce, grains, and legumes are found.
There, you will find a wide selection of seasonal fruits and vegetables, carefully sourced hopefully from local farmers and suppliers. Grains like wheat and oats come in a variety of forms for your convenience. Legumes such as beans, peas, and lentils are packed with proteins and vitamins that are essential for any healthy diet. With so many natural and fresh options available, it’s easy to create a nutritious meal without needing to venture too far from the store’s perimeter.
This specific placement helps to create an inviting atmosphere that encourages people to traverse the store as they pick up each item. Secondly, having such items located near the entrance and exit creates convenience for shoppers. Finally, studies have shown that placing fresh produce at the perimeter of the store creates a psychological influence, as shoppers are more likely to purchase healthy items when they are more visibly accessible.
